Is Touch the same as Tag?

No, there’s no ‘tag’ in Touch Football! You don’t need any specific types of shorts to play like you do in a tag game. 

Do you have to be fit to play Touch?

Nope, Touch Football at park level is a social sport. And there’s a reason it’s Australia’s largest social sport, with 700,000 people around the country taking part – everyone can play, no matter your age or size. It’s just about finding a social team that suits you.

What is Mixed Touch?

Many Touch Football clubs around the country offer ‘Mixed’ competitions, which means males and females can play in teams together. Depending on the age criteria set by the club, this means whole families (kids, parents, grandparents) can event play together. Even at the most elite end of the sport, there are Mixed as well as Men’s and Women’s divisions.

Rules and Regulations

Referee

Duty Referee

Griffith Touch Association utilises a Duty Referee system.

All referees please report to the desk at least 15 minutes prior to your game. Some of you will be buddy refereeing which means we do not want 2 of you on the field at once, you must interchange.  We will explain when you report, including any specific rules for our competition.

Referee Uniform

Please wear your own t shirt and shorts as you will be supplied with a referee vest for your game. Please wear football boots or similar to referee in.

Remember your whistle and water bottle.

Roster

If your name is not on the roster for this week, you will definitely get a game the following week. We have done the roster based on first in, first served. If your name is not here it is because our coordinator did not receive your confirmation. If you’ve discovered you have a game that clashed with your referee duty please contact our coordinator ASAP.
