Frequently Asked Questions
Whilst there are no minimum age requirements for our Junior Competitions Southern Touch Competitions start from Grades 3/4 and parents should consider whether participation of children younger than this could hamper their development.
Whilst only 6 players are permitted to take the field at any one time (Grade 3/4s only 5), we suggest you’d want roughly 10-12 players in total. Substitutions are limitless and quite often there’s someone who can’t make it along.
Typically, all Junior Competition matches are played between 4pm and 6pm.
Once team registrations close a fixture will be formulated and posted on the website under the ‘Fixtures/Results’ tab so you can check what time you play each week.
Whether it be Junior or Senior Competitions, Southern Touch charge per team. An approximate calculation would be to divide the team cost by 10 (players) which will give you an idea of individual cost. Team costs vary between competitions.
It is the responsibility of teams to arrange their own playing uniforms. For Junior Competitions Southern Touch recommend for all players to be in matching tops, (i.e. school sports tops, club supplied tops, etc.). It is not a requirement for Junior Competitions that playing tops are numbered.
Southern Touch may be able to assist you in purchasing uniforms through one of their suppliers/sponsors, please direct enquiries through firstname.lastname@example.org.
