Perth Football League Supports Stop the Coward Punch Campaign Tue, June 11, 2024 - 10:42 AM

The Perth Football League (PFL) is proud to once again have a dedicated round to support the Stop the Coward Punch Campaign. This significant event took place on the 8th of June, emphasizing the league's commitment to promoting safety and respect both on and off the field.

In a show of commitment, Colts captains took centre stage before their games to deliver impactful speeches. Each captain led their team in presenting the campaign's message, followed by a photo with the captain of each side holding the branded football. This initiative aims to raise awareness and encourage a united stance against cowardly acts of violence.

In preparation for this important event, Colts captains and coaches attended a comprehensive Stop the Coward Punch workshop on the 5th of June at PFL HQ. The workshop was led by Club Development Manager Mark Sanders, who provided valuable insights and strategies to effectively communicate the campaign's core message.

The Stop the Coward Punch Campaign seeks to eradicate senseless violence through education and community engagement. The PFL's involvement underscores the league's dedication to fostering a safe and supportive environment for all its members.

Mark Sanders expressed his enthusiasm for the initiative, stating, "This campaign is crucial in our efforts to educate young athletes about the devastating impact of coward punches. Through this dedicated round, we aim to instil a sense of responsibility and respect in our players."

The PFL invites all supporters to join in this vital cause and stand against cowardly violence. By working together, we can create a safer community and ensure the well-being of everyone involved in the sport.
