After a 3 year absence, Angie Lee returns to the roll of Junior Administrator, and we say thanks to Andrea Landon for the past two seasons in the role. Andrea however will still be working with us in the background.
Please note the following important messages, and be sure to read the Entry Pack thoroughly.
Due to a short Term 4, the season is starting earlier than usual, with games beginning in Week 1 of Term 4.
Start Dates: Monday 16th,Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th October 2017
This means a shorter turn around time for getting entries in, as we need to get the draws out before the school holidays.
Provisional Entries Due: Friday 18th August 2017 (two weeks to get a notice out to children/parents, and work out approximate number of teams)
Confirmation of Entries & Team Details Due: Monday 18th September 2017
Venues cannot be confirmed until the Council allocate all bookings. Sunnynook Park is closed this summer, so Local Touch have applied for Freyberg Park or Becroft Park for Mondays, Mairangi Bay Park for Tuesdays, and Becroft Park or McFetridge Park for Thursdays. Venues will be known by early September. We know this isn’t ideal, but could we ask schools to please be patient and flexible when entering teams. Also please be aware that our Monday venue will be smaller than Sunnynook, therefore we may have rounds that start later than in previous seasons.
Players To Play In Only One Team:
Players must choose to play either boys/girls, or mixed. This has always been in our Rules & Regulations. We have a large number of teams and our draw is usually at capacity, therefore adjusting draws to cater for children in more than one team unfortunately cannot be achieved.
Please note there are new guidelines in place for entering composite teams. These can be found in the Rules & Regulations section of this Entry Pack.
As we didn't get enough entries to our Tournament in Term One, we suggested we shifted the date to Wednesday 15th November (in Term Four).
[The email sent, included a survey for Persons in Charge of Touch to respond to. They've been asked to indicate if their school is interested in having a one day tournament in Term Four.]
