Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any minimum age requirements?

Minimum age requirements apply to all Senior Competitions, players must be turning 13 by the 1st January in the following calendar year.

How many players per team?

Whilst only 6 players are permitted to take the field at any one time, 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.

How much will it cost me to play?

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.

When will I be playing?

Typically, all Senior Competition matches range between 6pm and 9:30pm.

How will I know what time I play?

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.

Who supplies the playing uniform?

It is the responsibility of teams to arrange their own playing uniforms. At a minimum, uniforms must consist of matching tops of the same style, colour and design as well as being numbered on the back.

Southern Touch may be able to assist you in purchasing uniforms through one of their suppliers/sponsors, please direct enquiries through admin@southerntouch.com.au.

Can my children play with me?

To be eligible to participate in our Senior Competitions players must be turning 13 by the 1st January in the following calendar year.

Is there a minimum games requirement to participate in finals?

Yes, in Senior Competitions participants must have participated in a minimum of 5 matches to be eligible to participate in finals.
