Great turn out for ju­nior touch

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


MORE than 60 kids turned up for the first week of the Whit­sun­day Touch As­so­ci­a­tion’s (WTA) ju­nior pro­gram

There were 15 in the prep-year 2 di­vi­sion (coached by Nick Harat­sis, Scott Nan­car­row and Joel McBride), 15 in the grade 3-4 di­vi­sion (coached by Steve Ward and Derek Har­ring­ton), 25 in the grade 5-6 di­vi­sion (coached by Zac Hoff­man) and five for the grade 7-8 di­vi­sion.

Coaches put the kids through a warm up, some skill drills and then a game over their hour and there was a sausage siz­zle so all kids went home fed and worn out with games and train­ing fin­ished at 6pm.

The club is still look­ing for more play­ers, par­tic­u­larly in the el­dest group, as well as vol­un­teers from the par­ents or se­nior touch play­ers.

Peo­ple can help with coach­ing or in the can­teen cook­ing sausages and serv­ing drinks and any­one in­ter­ested should come up to the can­teen or email whit­sun­daytouch@hot­

Many play­ers paid their mo- ney on the night but all play­ers par­ents must reg­is­ter their kids online whether they have paid or not.

Play­ers can reg­is­ter and pay by credit card or se­lect that they’ll pay cash this Mon­day by go­ing to the Whit­sun­day Touch Face­book page or www.whit­sun­day.nq­
