In October to December 2021 Princes Park Touch will run a 6 week mixed junior touch program for boys and girls in years 6-9 (we are flexible on this and if you have been in the program before please attend regardless). The program will run for 6 weeks and will progress in terms of competition.

We plan to start on the 27th of October 2021 and run on consecutive Wednesdays, this is subject to covid approvals and timelines, but we will start as soon we possibly can and like last year will be the first junior sport back in the City of Melbourne

I will be presented by experienced coaches/referees with a backround in education and junior coaching.

The location of the program will be Princes Park, Parkville and it will run from 4:30PM to 6PM. These are our best guesses on dates, if our start is delayed they will be pushed back by a week (or weeks).

  • Week 1 – Wednesday the 27th of October – Come and try/pre season night. Informal games, individual sign up, and coaching.
  • Week 2 – Wednesday the 03rd of November – Coaching, training and informal games
  • Week 3 – Wednesday the 10th of November – Coaching, training and informal games
