Here is some lazy, light lockdown Touch Footy info for your reading pleasure. We have some info around currently “Paused” Winter competitions, some Spring one-off Events and of course Summer Touch. (Summer is 2-months away so we remain positive we will be gathering socially to play sport by then… Hmmm).
WINTER COMPETITIONS – Status
Winter Touch and Winter Turbo comps are on HOLD owing to the Covid lockdown. We are not cancelling any of them just yet, but will probably reduce the seasons so we can finish in time for Summer Touch. We watch our daily numbers and trends with interest.
Turbo n Vibez – (Turbo Touch Nationals) scheduled for the 12th Sept has been officially Cancelled. Damnn!
SPRING WARM-UP TOURNAMENTS – Jnr and Snrs
We have separate One-Day Tournaments for Junior and Senior Teams respectively. Both these events are OPEN for entry. Play 4-5 warm up games, get your combos sorted, listen to great Music and generally have a fun day out with Friends and Whanau.
