Why Manly Touch

Why we think MWTA is the best option for you to play touch

1.   We are an affiliated competition with Touch Football Australia and NSW Touch Assocaitaion. We are a tier one associaton and were incorporated in 1974.

2.   We are a Not-For-Profit Association. We are run by our  members for our members, being the players, coaches, managers, referees, volunteers and supporters. Every cent we make goes back into the game, unlike many unaffiliated competitions run by individuals who are in it just to make a profit. These rebel competitions put nothing back into the game itself. 

3.   Through Touch Football Australia, we have a superior player insurance scheme which is not offered to unaffiliated competitions such as those run privately by individuals. Can you afford not to be insured?

4.   As we are an affiliated competition with Touch Football Australia, we offer pathways  for those of you who would like to get serious about touch to participate in representative touch tournaments, annually at Regional (NSWTA Senior and Junior State Cup), National (National Touch League), State (State of Origin NSW vs QLD) and International level (World Cup and Trans Tasman).

5.  We are also one of the most successful Affiliates in New South Wales being the only club since the inception of touch football to hold the dual Representative titles 'in the same year' of being the Junior and Senior State Cup "Champion Club".  In recent years this has been achieved on a number of occasions.

6.   We have registered graded and trained referees, who can properly officiate games. Many of these referees who operate at Representative and indeed International level.  We also have Coaches and Selectors who administer our Representative teams. These are people with enormous experience and training, some are current and former NSW and Australian Representatives. 

7.   Our association is run by a Committee of volunteers made up of players and referees whose only interest is to promote touch football locally and make the game of touch more enjoyable.E very decision made has you as the player as it's vested interest.  Unlike privately run competitions who put you the player second to them making a dollar.

8.  Our competitions cater for all levels from the touch football novice through to the more experienced representative levels.  Whatever your ability, we have a division suited to your team.

9.  Convenience, you play every week at the same local venue, there is NO trapsing all over Sydney to play other teams.
