Is Touch the same as Tag?
No, there’s no ‘tag’ in Touch Football! You don’t need any specific types of shorts to play like you do in a tag game.
Do you have to be fit to play Touch?
Nope, Touch Football at park level is a social sport. And there’s a reason it’s Australia’s largest social sport, with 700,000 people around the country taking part – everyone can play, no matter your age or size. It’s just about finding a social team that suits you.
What is Mixed Touch?
Many Touch Football clubs around the country offer ‘Mixed’ competitions, which means males and females can play in teams together. Depending on the age criteria set by the club, this means whole families (kids, parents, grandparents) can event play together. Even at the most elite end of the sport, there are Mixed as well as Men’s and Women’s divisions.

Touch Football Australia manages changes to the policy to maintain currency with industry requirements. In addition, claims are managed so large increases related to increase claims are evened out across the scheme ensuring stability with insurance related costs for local associations.
To review the coverage available, we recommend all individuals to consider their personal circumstance and assess if additional external coverage is required outside of what is offered as part of membership to the affiliated structure of Touch Football Australia.

Rules and Regulations
Doyalson Touch Association utilises a Duty Referee system.
All referees please report to the desk at least 15 minutes prior to your game. Some of you will be buddy refereeing which means we do not want 2 of you on the field at once, you must interchange. We will explain when you report, including any specific rules for our competition.
Please wear your own t shirt and shorts. Please wear football boots or similar to referee in.
Remember your whistle and water bottle.
Field allocations will be written on the white board in the referee’s room.
Stand By Referees
Often we roster referees on as our reserves in case somebody is running late or gets hurt. You still get paid to be on ‘stand by’ so please don’t wander away from the desk area. If you arrive and don’t see your name on the roster but it was on the website please come and find our coordinator
NSWTA Event Referees
Any referees who are interested in attending NSWTA events such as Junior or Senior State Cup please let our coordinator know. We also have gala days leading up to this tournament that we need refs for. If you’re keen, it’s great money and will improve your refereeing skills.
