Please keep Thursday evenings free (6:30 start), sign up (if you have not signed up to previous modules) and most importantly spread the word.

All women no matter what their level of play are welcome to attend our women’s program (SWITCH).

Our next program is tentatively scheduled for Thursdays nights, starting in early October:

  • PPT Switch Spring 2022 week 1 – 13th of October
  • PPT Switch Spring 2022 week 2 – 20th of October
  • PPT Switch Spring 2022 week 3 – 27th of October

The program will be followed by our Summer 2022 women’s competition, which will run in November and December and our Summer mixed seasons which will run from early November to February (with break over Christmas).

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 4-5 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. For those without a team the program also incorporates the options of being placed into a mixed or (over in Summer season) a women’s team in our social competitions (this is usually handled before those seasons start).

Note if you’ve registered before there is no need to sign up again. You are already part of SWITCH.

In an effort to build the social touch community in the inner north of Melbourne, we are again running the PPT Spring pre season program.

In October and 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:

Our next pre season night is:

  • Wednesday the 26th of October at 6:20 for 6:30pm
  • Thursday the 03rd of November at 6:20PM for 6:30pm

Where

  • The venue is Princes Park, Carlton. We shall be near field 1 on this map. And I´ll have flags up so will be easy to find.

Format

Our pre season nights incorporate:

  1. A short chat with one of our committee to determine individual player experience and what sort of touch you wish to play.
  2. A short training session, with groups broken up by ability.
  3. A refereed scratch match to gauge ability and provide a fun run around
  4. An optional drink with our committee either next to the fields or at our Summer sponsor, the Great Northern Hotel.

These nights are primarily for individual players. Existing teams or players wishing to attend and are welcome but are requested to let us know.
