If you’ve enquired via our website about playing at Princes Park Touch in our weeknight social competitions (Wednesdays over Winter and Wednesdays and Thursdays over Summer) you may be wondering how we go about getting you on the field. This is a short summary of how it works and hopefully it answers any questions you may have.
The first thing you might we wondering about are costs. In terms of placement there are none, Princes Park Touch is a non profit and so we place players into teams completely free of charge. The teams themselves run independently though and split the total team registration cost in different ways. Therefore impossible for us to give you an exact cost for a season playing one our social teams but it is generally between $100 to $150 (all inclusive, including insurance). Shorter season such as our womens competition will be proportionally less.
Placement in the pre season
Outside of our season we run a number of events. These include our womens training program (SWITCH) and evenings for prospective players called pre season nights. Both are completely free and the best way of being placed. This is because you get to learn and play touch through these nights AND most importantly we get to meet you and ascertain what sort fo team you like to be on. We prefer to do things in person at PPT so players that attend these nights get preference in terms of placement and we help out the vast majority.
Placement once the season has started
Placement during the season is not always possible but if a teams has a vacancy then we will try to put you in touch via email and our text with a team that needs an extra player.
