Guys a further update on the path back to playing.
We were hoping to running an abbreviated 1-2week Winter seaon but the lockdwn extensions obviously mean that the Winter 2020 season is cancelled.
That means we turn to our main season Summer 2020-21 back in Princes Park on Wednesdays and Thursday evenings. We are currently assessing rules and dates, but on preliminary analysis it looks like training could start from the 26th of October and competition could start from the 23rd of November (both dates subject to case counts).
We are keen to get out there and we already have our “return to play” procedures and approvals in place as we ran two weeks of SWITCH training over Winter). Therefore as soon as it is lega we will be the first to restart. As such we plan to start training in late October by completing our 2020 SWITCH program as well as running at least two pre season nights in early mid November. With our season to start in late November. This loose timeline is obviously subject to change based on the state governments rules and targets.
Details of registration for individuals are here and team registration for Summer 2020-21 will open shortly.
In 2020 at PPT women will be leading us back out onto the field
The 2020 SWITCH program will restart as soon Melbourne returns to stage 2. All being well this will restart in late October at our Summer venue in Princes Park.
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
