This summer season we play on Mondays (A and B grade), Wednesday nights (family grade) and will hold a junior program on Friday nights at King Lloyd Reserve in Newtown.
The Friday junior program will be returning on November 25.

To register into the junior program register into the team 'Geelong Friday Juniors'.

We are kicking off the new season on Monday October 10 and Wednesday October 12.

This year the main change is that we will be changing to team fees instead of individual fees.

 

The team fee will be $1350 and you will get a $40 discount per player aged 18 years or under up to a maximum discount of $400.

 

Therefore the lowest fee a team will pay will be $950 (10 x under 19's or more).

 

A team with 10 adults will pay $135 per person. A team with 9 adults should pay $150 per person etc. The more people you get to play, the cheaper it is. 

 

There is no limit on the amount of players you can register per team, however a maximum of 14 can only play in any one game.

 

There won't be any payment required when you register your team or when registering individually online.

 

Therefore we ask that all teams are registered and all players are registered into their teams before the start of the competition (by October 10).

 

There is a minimum of 9 players required in each team and a minimum of 4 females (or juniors 13 and under).

 

You need to be 12 years of age to play on Mondays and 9 years of age to play on Wednesdays.

 

Teams will be required to make full payment before October 28 into the following bank account;

 

Touch Football Geelong

BSB:          633 000

Account:      103771911   

Please fill in your registered team name as the reference.

 

Please note, teams won't be able to take the field from round 4 if payment hasn't been received

 

There are a number of guys looking for a team, if any team needs more males, let us know and we will connect you with them. 

 

We will also run 3 x Come and Try days on Sunday Sep 25, October 2 and October 9 from 2pm to 4pm at King Lloyd Reserve.

 

The divisions offered this year will be 

Mondays - A Grade

Mondays - B Grade

Wednesdays - Family A grade. A maximum of two A grade Monday adult males are allowed per team.

Wednesdays - Family B Grade (for younger and less experienced teams). A maximum of one A grade Monday adult male is allowed per team

 

We encourage teams that finished in the top half of the ladder on Wednesdays to register into the Wednesday A grade and teams that finished in the lower half of the ladder last year to register for the Family B grade. We will review and possibly regrade teams after 3-4 rounds.

 

The Friday junior program is suitable for ages 6 to 18.

 

The junior program will start on Friday November 25 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm and run for 4 weeks before Christmas, and then begin back on Friday January 13 for 4 weeks. To register into this program there will be a $50 individual fee. The link to register into the Friday junior team (program) is here;

RULE CHANGES for 2021/22

For the Wednesday competition in summer, only two A grade adult male will be allowed to play in a Wednesday night div A team and one in a family div B team. This ensures fairness for the Wednesday night teams but also allows families to play together. An adult for this rule is classified if you are 14 or over at the start of the season. Please read the local rules at the top of our website, in particular the changes made in blue.

No fill in players are allowed for the last 4 rounds. This is to ensure teams have enough players come finals and don't rely on fill in players throughout the season.

All teams must be in correct uniforms by round 5. This includes numbers on the back. Penalties apply.

Both team and individual registration is done by going to www.touchfootball.com.au. Sometimes you will have to search by the postcode instead of typing in "Geelong". Please don't register into "Geelong Touch Association" as you need to specifically register into a team.

If you are looking for a team or looking for players for your team, please email geelongtouchassociation@hotmail.com

Geelong Touch Football Association encourages people of all ages and abilities to join our highly social touch community in having a run around on Monday or Wednesday nights in summer, or Monday nights only in winter.

Games are held at King Lloyd Reserve in Newtown. 

 

  • Our 2022-23 Summer season is planned to begin on Monday October 10 and Wednesday November 12 (Family competition).

  • Game duration is 45 minutes with games played at 6:15pm, 7:15pm and 8:15pm.

 

Touch is becoming quite popular with nearly 40 teams participating in our summer competition.

Wednesday Family division night can be seen as an entry level night with lots of kids playing together with their parents. Monday nights have a social B grade competition and a more competitive A grade competition.

Friday nights is for our juniors only. A new program that divides into primary and high school students. This will start on November 25. Register into the Geelong Junior team. The cost is $50 for this 8 week program.
