What is SWITCH?
Twice a year Princes Park Touch in partnership 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
or if you have any questions contact us:
In 2021-22 Princes Park Touch plan to run a 6 week mixed junior touch programs for boys and girls in years 7-9. These program will run for 6 weeks and will progress in terms of competition. The first in term four 2021 (with a second module in term 1 2022).
I will be presented by experienced coaches/referees with a backround in education and junior coaching.
The location of the program will be on Wednesdays at Princes Park, Parkville and it will run from 4:30PM to 6PM.
It is now apparent that lockdown will not end before the end of September, therefore any hope of completing our season at Kensington is now gone. As we guarantee a mininum of 12 games (and usually provide 13-14) and we will be refunding teams pro rata for the fact we have not been able to complete the second half of the season.
For those teams in the finals when we ceased competition there is however hope to be crowned champions for your grade for our 2021, as it may be possible for the usual two weeks of grading at the start of our Summer season to double as the Winter finals but this will not be known until timelines become apparent.
I will contacting team captains this week to arrange refunds and will be opening registrations for our Summer season shortly.
