***COVID UPDATE 23/3/22***
With the latest announcement in regards to changes to the COVID traffic light system, Touch
will change for our last round of competition on Tuesday!
We are happy to say that we will be able to have all teams playing (Years 1-13) and that we
no longer have a limit for how many people can attend. You will no longer have to scan a QR
code, or come in through specific entryways.
This also means we can have spectators! The important thing to remember is that if you are
not playing or reffing touch, and you are 12 years 3 months (or older) then you will need to
show us your vaccine pass. Please have these ready, as you could be asked for them at any
This means parents, grandparents, cousins, friends etc that are old enough will still need a
vaccine pass to attend.
Thank you for all your support, and compliance with the ever-changing rules!
