Firstly welcome on board for another season of social touch, this is just a heads up of a few things before our season starts in three weeks
Full fees for the season are $1300, this is split between a $500 deposit plus $800 residual. For those teams who have not yet paid the deposit ($500), it is now due and unless arrangement have been made with us we expect it before week 1
Our bank details are:
Name: Princes Park Touch Association
Account Number: 186067798
Unlike most competition we are members run. The means we have been able to extend the opportunities for players e.g. our representative program and presidents drinks.
But it requires players pitching in themselves. The key way is to join the refereeing ranks. It is good fun, social, and well paid.
The best way is to do a course, details here:
If you have a referee in your team who is keen to get back involved then please put us in touch, we really look after and value our referees.
This is important!!
Preseason night and individuals
On the 11th of October we have our second preseason night:
This night is primarily geared towards individuals. However if teams want to come down for a run please let us know and we will try to provide a referee and/or coaching.
Formal competition starts on the 18th of October and the draw will be published the weekend before and will be available here: https://princesparktouch.com/social-competition/
Weeks one will be a grading round with two half length games for all teams. Grading rounds along with your team nomination will be used to determine your teams ultimate grade for regular season play. Please note that given there are plenty of new faces mismatches in grading may occur. But grading enables us to match teams closely over the remainder of the season.
We are upgrading our team software so the login details I have promised to some teams to maintain their team lists should be available next week.
Any other questions
Make sure you and all your team have read and understand the FAQ on the website: https://princesparktouch.com/membership/
It is a condition of entry of our comp but more importantly has vital information for both players and team captains.
Looking forward to being back on the 18th.
