Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Whitsunday Touch Football

Congratulations to Charlee Morris, Cooper Robinson, Hamish Peel, Acacia Rock, Bryson Henshell, Lanie Hazelton and Leeshara Reynolds who have been selected for the Whitsundays to take part in Northern Region’s Touch Trials.  

Teams selected from these trials will go on to represent North Queensland at the State Championships.

WTA also wishes Bernard Woods all the best of luck as he travels to Coffs Harbour next week.  Bernard has been selected in the North Queensland Cyclones 60 years and over for the National Touch League.

The experience all these players will bring back from exposure to the higher standard of competition at representative level will be a boost to our own local competition.

This season, Family Grade has been recognised as an avenue for young players to have regular exposure to competitive touch, aged 8-12 years.

Not only is it an opportunity for families to play together, it also helps develop skills and involve all players.
