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.

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.

Referee’s

Duty Referee

Berkeley Vale 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.

Referee Uniform

Please wear your own t shirt and shorts as you will be supplied with a referee shirt for your game. Please wear football boots or similar to referee in.

Remember your whistle and water bottle.

Roster

Referee roster will be posted each week on our Berkeley Vale Referee Facebook page.  If you’ve discovered you have a game that clashed with your referee duty please contact Michelle or our Ref Facebook page ASAP.

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.
