In an effort to build the social touch community in the inner north of Melbourne, we are running the PPT Spring pre season program.
In November we will be providing team coaching for existing teams and training and refereed scratch matches for unaligned players looking to start playing touch or those just keen to upgrade their skills or get back into it.
The preseason nights will incorporate an interview, coaching and playing components and will be used to assess unaligned players and place them into teams to play in the PPT Summer competition. We have now locked in the following dates, these are in line with the roadmap and approvals (but noting the government could change these timelines).
The next preseason night is
Thursday the 26th of November at 6:20PM for 6:30 (for all other players)
The venue is Princes Park, Carlton. I´ll have flags up so will be easy to find. Map here
Our pre season nights incorporate:
A short chat with one of our committee to determine individual player experience and what sort of touch you wish to play.
A short training session, with groups broken up by ability.
A refereed scratch match to guage ability and provide a fun run around
These nights are primarily for individual players. Existing teams wishing to attend and take advantage of some coaching are welcome but are requested to let us know and we’ll try to allocate an experienced coach specifically for their team.

What is SWITCH?
Twice a year Princes Park Touch in partnerhsip with VicHealth run a FREE learn to play touch and fitness programs to Strengthen Women in Touch Football (SWITCH).
These programs run for 5-6 weeks and are targeted at females who are new or inexperienced players.
The program teaches basic fitness, ball skills and an introduction to game play with the emphasis on having fun in what we believe is the best game. We supply everything, all you need to bring is yourself and your playing gear.
The program will be predominately run by experienced female players who can also share their experiences and at the conclusion of the program (those that don´t have a team) will have the choice of being placed into a team
The program will last 4 week with the regular season (subject to case targets) starting at its conclusion.
