Registration for Junior Touch now open
DUBBO Touch is calling for team nominations in the junior competition which runs from September to December.
The Summer Comp is open to girls, boys and mixed team across a number of age divisions including under-7s, 9s, 11s, 13s and 15s.
Matches are played every Monday, commencing in Sep, with grand finals just before Christmas.
Games take place between 4.30pm and 6pm and the cost to play is $60 per player and includes a playing singlet.
“Players can be registered as part of a team or as an individual player and we will help find them a team,” said Junior Touch Director, Nic Grose.
“We are implementing some changes this year including tries scored by female players in the older divisions will be worth two points and all games will be played across two time slots rather than three,” said Nic.
