Description

Touch football is a variety of rugby where tackling players is replaced by a touch. This means it is a great sport with a lowered risk of injury. The sport is popular because it is easy to learn and so we invite all ranges of abilities from the absolute beginner to the most advanced players to join in.

The competition is a mixed round-robin format and the top four teams will play off in the medal games.

Venue, Date and Time

Hendy Street Reserve, Hendy St, Corio. The competition will be held on Saturday 20th March 2021 commencing at 9.00 am and concluding at approximately 3.00pm.

**Please note date and venue subject to change.

Facilities

Hendy St Reserve is home to the Geelong Rams Rugby Union Club so there will be access to change rooms and toilets throughout the day. Please bring any food or refreshments that you require throughout the competition. Further information about any other requirements will be sent to participants prior to the event.

Special Instructions

Touch footballs will be provided for the competition. Teams need to register by 8.30am for 9.00am start. Each player will need a shirt with an easily identifiable number on the back.

Teams and Rules

Teams are made up of 6 players per side.

Due to lower numbers of female participants, teams require only two females on the field at any time. A try scored by males and females this year will be worth one point.

Reserves are recommended due to the fast pace of the game. There is a maximum of 14 players per team.
