Dubbo Photo News - - Sport - Pic­tured:

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.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion as well as the on­line reg­is­tra­tion process visit www.dub­botouch.com. Reg­is­tra­tions close for the 2019 Ju­nior Touch Com­pe­ti­tion at 5pm on Au­gust 23.
