Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

TOUCH: Ju­nior touch foot­ball sea­son is around the cor­ner.

Whit­sun­day Touch As­so­ci­a­tion sec­re­tary Justin But­ler said the club would be hold­ing a sign-on day on Mon­day from 5.15-6pm for any kids aged 12 and un­der for a 12s, 10s and 8s team.

“The un­der-12s will be get­ting used to play­ing games. The 10s will do a mix of skills and games and the un­der-8s will fo­cus on get­ting the ba­sic skills like how to pick up the ball and pass,” But­ler said.

“It’s a great sport for both boys and girls to play, es­pe­cially those that don’t want to play full con­tact sports.”

The com­pe­ti­tion runs for 10 weeks and fin­ishes in the last week of Term 3. They are also look­ing for coaches and can­teen vol­un­teers.
