Representing Manly Touch


Manly Touch football players who want to test their skills beyond the social park level competition are encouraged to trial for our Manly Touch representative teams.


New South Wales Touch Association (NSWTA) has a number of representative events which Manly Touch compete in. These events are:

  • Vawdon Cup
  • Senior State Cup
  • Junior State Cup


Opportunities exist for players from under 8’s to over 60’s, with divisions for girls, boys, women, men and mixed.

Manly Touch also enters an Inclusion side into Vawdon Cup.

The Manly Touch Footy Experience

As any past or present representative touch players will tell you, playing for Manly Touch is a rewarding experience in terms of skills development, increased fitness and fantastic way to increase your network of friends.


To participate in any of the above tournaments you must be a current financial member of MWTA and be playing in a current Manly Touch local competition.

There has been a bit of uncertainty regarding what Manly Touch competitions qualify our players for the various NSWTA representative tournaments.
However the following applies.
2018 Vawdon Cup
Season 2 2017 (Our 2017/18 Summer Comp)
Season 1 2018 (Our 2018 Winter Comp)
2018 Senior State Cup
Season 1 2018 (Our Winter Comp)
Season 2 2018 (Our 2018/19 Summer Comp)
2019 Junior State Cup
Season 2 2018 (Our 2018/19 Junior or Senior Summer Comp)

Please note that NSWTA define Season 1 as our Winter Comp and Season 2 is our Summer Comp.

Therefore all players wanting to play at the 2019 JSC must play in one of our Summer competitions, either junior or senior. Our winter comp counts to SSC but it doesn’t count towards JSC.
Please note that this is NOT a Manly Touch rule but a NSWTA requirement.
