Whitsunday Touch Football

Whitsunday Touch Football Association’s new season kicked off on Monday night with 25 teams nominating across its four divisions of Open A, Mixed A, Mixed B and Mixed C Family.

The season will run through to the Grand Finals in June, with the Association committed to encouraging participation and development of women, juniors, and referees.

Limiting teams to maximum of three on field males is hoped to give women, girls, and juniors greater opportunity to develop their skills and promote their enjoyment of the sport.

Players interested in refereeing accreditation should take the opportunity of the Level One Referees Course this Saturday, February 18, at 8.00am – 12.00pm at the Whitsunday Touch Fields.
