Worn2Win confirmed as Official Kit & Apparel Partner to Touch Singapore

Touch Singapore are delighted to announce the appointment of Worn2Win as the Official Kit Partner for the supply of the Singapore National Touch kit in a 2 year agreement. The agreement will include the provision of all playing and off field apparel for the Singapore National Teams and officials throughout the contract period which includes both the Youth World Cup and the Touch World Cup.

As part of the partnership Worn2Win have secured the Title Sponsorship rights for the Singapore International Touch Knockout (SITK) tournament which will now be titled as the Worn2Win Singapore International Touch Knockout held in June. The tournament has been hugely popular with 40 teams throughout Asia battling it out for the title across a two day knockout format in 4 categories (Men’s, Women’s, Mixed Opens & Men’s Masters). The competition is entering it’s second edition this June and is highly anticipated as it also coincides with Singapore Women’s Open team hosting Japan in their first ever 3 Test Series on home soil. Another exciting development sees the first supporters merchandise range set to be launched at the SITK where Worn2Win will have a merchandise tent set up for the event and an online store platform will be launched in the coming months allowing Touch fans  to purchase official Touch Singapore merchandise.

Chris Hallewell, Marketing & Sponsorship Director who led the tender has been effusive in his review when asked for comment stating:

“I am delighted and excited to welcome Worn2Win in to the Touch Singapore family. Myself and the committee have been extremely impressed with the vision, professionalism and thoroughness that Worn2Win have demonstrated throughout the process and they have outperformed the competition much like how we aspire to do on the playing field. This agreement is both a commercial and technical partnership, so whilst TSG of course are delighted to announce the sponsorship for the Worn2Win Singapore International Touch Knockout, we are equally excited from a technical stand point, as Worn2Win have demonstrated a passion to bring innovation that has not been experienced by Touch Football in Singapore in the past. They have proposed to introduce technologies and garment styling from other sports where there has been significant advancement over recent years especially in the worlds of Netball and AFL, so we firmly believe that we are partnering for the future with a business that wants to evolve the performance development of the apparel for the players both National and at club level by taking best of breed technologies and adapting them to the unique requirements of Touch Football.”

Kane McIntyre, Co-Founder of Worn2Win was equally enthusiastic when asked for comment on the tender process and working within the sport of Touch Football:

“The Worn2Win team and I are excited to have the opportunity to partner with TSG.  We are very much looking forward to offering TSG and their affiliated Touch Football Clubs in Singaporean unmatched value for money proposition by delivering high levels of service, high quality garments and quick turnaround times (4 weeks or less) on a consistent basis using our in-house manufacturing facilities.  In addition to this we are committed to creating a new benchmark for Touch Football apparel by engineering and refining playing apparel specifically to meet the exacting requirements of Touch Football players and referees.”

TSG will be announcing details for the club kits programme in the coming weeks and will share with club officials throughout the AAM Advisory Touch League for kits to be ordered ahead of the upcoming Winter Touch League in August. Worn2Win would also like to invite all clubs to visit them at the merchandise stand over the weekend of the 9/10th June where examples of their playing kit will be on display for you to see and feel their range of products.

An EPIC Final to Conclude the National Junior Colleges Championship

What an epic Grand Final in the Singapore National Junior Colleges Championship ( NJCC) played in front of the largest Touch crowd witnessed – it was loud and it was awesome. After four weeks of round robin games it came down to a truly nail biting drop off. Congratulations to Hwa Chong Institution against a very spirited SRJC.

CrossRoads Brewing Company Singapore Partners With TAS


TAS are pleased to announce that our partners Crossroads Brewing Company Singapore, will be supporting a subsidised  bar on Saturday, which should add to the usual great party atmosphere that is TAS Grand Finals Day.

Thanks to Crossroads, who like TAS,  are a new and exciting Singapore institution EACH adult team will have  vouchers/tickets for 10 FREE glasses of Crossroads beer and with recent memories of bland, mass produced beer at $12 a glass we are pleased to be offering subsequent glasses of quality Crossroads brew at ONLY $5per glass! It is a great deal and will benefit all parties involved.

We are sure you are going to enjoy these beers after your hard work in the play offs,  or if you are out in the HEAT supporting.

There will also be a Crossroads desk next to the bar for special offers for TAS members to have Crossroads bottles  delivered directly to home OR OFFICE at one off special rates.

New and exciting Singaporean firms like Crossroads are exactly who TAS are excited to be partnering with, and we thank Crossroads for their support of TAS.



Our beers are light and session-able with flavour and character, fitting in both the price and flavour gap between mass market offerings and the “super crafty" craft beers from overseas. As an example, our 4.5% alc. Crossroads Summer Ale was inspired by the heat and humidity of Singapore. We wanted a flavourful beer that would quench our thirst and that was light enough for us to enjoy over an afternoon or evening with friends.

Proudly brewed in and for Singapore, the Crossroads of Asia, we represent the perfect fusion for the urban adventurer, of old and new, difference in harmony, and celebration of the journey ahead. This is why we are not a heavy or bitter craft beer, nor are we mass and bland. With originality and without compromise, we brew at the crossroads, where the very best meet and naturally blend, delivering an original premium craft brew.

We are served around Singapore at some of the city’s finest craft beer tap rooms and party spots. Our Facebook page and ratings will also attest to the quality and growing popularity of our brew.

Country of Origin and Junior All Stars a HUGE SUCCESS

We were confident that we could run an efficient tournament but the unknown was how the teams would take to the format and at what level of intensity would the games be played at. Looking back it shouldn’t have been a surprise to everyone that once the teams got out playing for their country that the competitiveness came through.

Feedback has been very positive and the final game between Singapore Merlions v Singapore Orchids was a standout. The inclusion of the Junior All Stars added to the atmosphere and at the peak of 5:30pm the stadium was packed including all the parents and interested random public onlookers.

Looking ahead to 2018, we envisage expanding the format to 12 countries across two graded pools  - planning is already underway.

In summing up, many volunteers were involved in staging the event but most pleasing was how everyone came together in the end pitching in to help with clearing and packing up after the event which is what a true community is all about.

On behalf of the TAS crew, thank you for making it a wonderful event for everyone to enjoy and we look forward to a bigger and better Country of Origin in 2018.   Photos will gradually be uploaded onto Facebook over the next couple of days.

TAS National Junior Colleges Touch Championships

The TAS National Junior Colleges Touch Championships 2017 (NJCC) Fixtures are now out on our website under 'Fixtures/Results'.

 9 local colleges will once again battle it out at 5 different school venues spread over the month of April. This is part of TAS' vision to see Touch played more in local schools ensuring financial accessibility of Touch to the citizens of Singapore. Grassroots secondary schools and college Touch competitions are vital for the future development of Singapore Touch.

Many of the students who played in the NJCC last year currently play for various teams in our ongoing 76 Team ATL, signalling a clear youth pathway for our young TAS members.

Country of Origin @ the FLOAT Marina Bay

TAS Country of Origin Tournament will be held at The Float @ Marina Bay on Friday 14 April.

What a GREAT Story! Singapore Touch Community

What a great STORY: See below a recount from one of the mums taking part in their first ever touch league game. 

TRC MAD take to the pitch for their first game in the TAS League!!

-- Wrap-up from Annabel Mackie --

I, for one, was expecting blood, sweat and tears during our Touch MAD’s first appearance against a very young and sprightly Centaurs Viking Team last weekend but I am very glad to say that, although, there was a lot of perspiration and tired bodies after our 40 minutes there were no injuries and only big smiles on everyone’s face at the end of the match.

After only nine lessons - and I think some of our team only had two or three - we went out on to the pitch expecting nothing but humiliation and a large scoreline against us. Well I think we surprised ourselves. Appearing like we were actually enjoying playing and wanting to go back out on to the pitch, I think we were all delighted with the final score of 3-8. Not bad for some ‘middle aged’ - apologies to those that are not! - beginners on their first outing.

As our co-captain Jon McNaught said it is good that we can give the message that ‘social, competitive sport should not end in the high teens but should continue all the way up to us parents as an example to our kids. Even if this involves a lot of eye rolling from them!

All of us recognised that we wouldn’t have been such a cohesive and happy bunch if we hadn’t had our multi-talented coach-player-manager Jon Stonham to encourage, educate and direct us, aided ably by Coach Malcolm. It really made a difference having two seasoned Touch players there telling us what to do and where to be!

Despite our performance, there are many areas that we still have to put a lot of work into. One that I heard everyone mention at the end was that we seem to have forgotten how to do the basic ‘A’ drive up the pitch and a few people admitting too ‘overstepping the mark'. It seems that we misplaced a few of our basic drills that we have learned over the weeks, so there is still a lot of work to be done on perfecting these.

Well done all!

TAS Coaching Clinic - 12 Feb

Newly Elected Committee Members

TAS is delighted to present our newly elected President, Jeslyn Lim and Coaching Director, Jazreel Tan who will be replacing Graeme Lees and Shane Morris respectively. 

Graeme Lees has led TAS for the past year with a lot of passion and advocates standing up for the right causes firmly. TAS achieved 70+ teams playing in the weekly leagues, an amazing achievement in any sport let alone Touch. His contributions in this historic year for TAS will not be forgotten. Graeme will be returning to Australia.

Shane Morris, National Women's Coach, highly respected in the local Touch scene has supported and fought for many notable causes this past year. He will be greatly missed by many and especially those coached under him when he leaves for New Zealand.

TAS and the community would like to put on record their heartfelt thanks to both men for their contributions on the committee to the Singapore Touch Community.

Jeslyn Lim is a 2 time Bronze Medallist at Touch World Cups and Silver Medallist representing Singapore in Rugby at the SEA Games. Jes was also Co-Captain of the Women's National Team at the World Cup and served as Vice President of Monsoon Touch Football Club in the past. Upon acceptance of her role, she expressed a great desire to support and bring Touch to the next level.

Jazreel Tan is also a 2 time Bronze Medallist at Touch World Cups. She was Co-Captain of the Women's National Team at the World Cup and served as Vice President of Todaks Touch Football Club in the past. She has coached Singapore Polytechnic for a number of years and has been successful in bringing many girls through the system to her alumni team, Wildcards who won the Women's Premiership last year. We look forward to her sharing her coaching expertise and direction with the community.

Both local ladies stepping up to the plate is an extremely positive sign for the Singapore Touch Community. TAS hopes that everyone will display the same spirit & contribute in your own little ways as we continue to press on in 2017. Thank you and looking forward to seeing everyone at Turf tomorrow!

Graeme Lees
Touch Association Singapore

TAS - Affiliate of Singapore Rugby Union - National Sports Association

We cap of a great 2016 with the official affiliation of TAS to Singapore Rugby Union - National Sports Association. What does this OFFICIALLY mean?

  1. Sport Singapore is supportive of this affiliation and partnership between TAS and SRU to promote and govern the sport of Touch in Singapore.
  2. TAS remains independent, has its own Constitution (see Policies & Documents) tab.
  3. A formal partnership with SRU fostering strong synergies particularly with joint marketing efforts and access to additional government funding in order to further grow touch in Singapore. This arrangement is comparable to many other Touch/Rugbyor Rugby League Associations Globally - e.g. Hong Kong Touch Association and Hong Kong Rugby Union.
  4. The Singapore government, through Sport Singapore governs all National Sporting Associations in Singapore. ONLY National Sporting Associations can name the OFFICIAL National teams for all Sports. All OFFICIAL National Touch teams will be under the guidance and support of TAS.

TAS remains unrecognized by FIT which currently means the OFFICIAL SINGAPORE Touch teams will NOT be eligible to participate in any FIT sanctioned event. Over the last 12 months we have put forward a very clear case for FIT to recognise TAS with some of the key points highlighted below:

FIT Affiliation Process - Where is TAS Positioned

  1. Over Ninety Eight Percent (98%) of the Singapore Touch Community play touch under TAS
  2. This includes government schools, government departments, Junior Colleges, Polytechnics, Universities, International Schools, Clubs (except 1 club) and all social touch teams in the league.
  3. 140+ Referees
  4. TAS is a Not For Profit democratically elected representative of the Singapore Touch Community.
  5. Grown the sport from 50 league teams in Season 1 to 76 league teams in Season 2. The growth is due to many Polytechnic and University students that had been priced out returning together with new teams from government departments.
  6. Throughout the entire 2016 TAS was only granted one physical meeting with FIT despite multiple (documented) requests to do so.
  7. Our (documented) communications with FIT have always been with sincere willingness to work together and this this does not change as we continue to liaise with FIT to gain affiliation. 
  8. Over Ninety Eight Percent (98%) of the Singapore Touch Community have placed their confidence in TAS to be the administrative body in Singapore. We will continue to ask the question to FIT why the collective voice of the community/citizens of Singapore is not being heard.

To end on a positive note, AAM Advisory League will commence again Saturday February 11 2017 with team nominations opening up shortly. Let's make this league even bigger and better and from a FIT affiliation perspective that common sense will eventually prevail so that all nations within Asia and globally can enjoy Touch as it should be.

Touch Association Singapore SAS Invitational A Huge Success

Just like the coach pictured, everyone at Touch Association Singapore thoroughly enjoyed staging the SAS Invitational 2016 on the weekend and we hope that all 62 teams also enjoyed it just as we did. As with every tournament, we learn new things and hopefully with the learnings and feedback that we will be able to deliver an even better experience in 2017.

We would like to thank Terence Toh for all his dedication and effort with the tournament. He is patient, thoughtful and genuinely a wonderful human being and we are glad to have him as an integral part of Touch Association Singapore. The support we received from all the referees was again phenomenal ensuring that all the games were officiated with two referees and to the best of our ability the games running on time. It was a great opportunity for all our new referees to kick start their introduction into real games and serves as great platform for them to continue their involvement with Touch.

Of course, we must thank Singapore American School and in particular Mimi for their genuine hospitality. When everyone in the community works together with a common objective, nothing is ever too difficult.

We are all dedicated volunteers and put in countless hours for the love of the sport enabling the children and youth these wonderful opportunities to play sport, meet a bunch of new friends and pick up new life experiences.

Once again, thank you  and we look forward to see you all again in 2017.

SAS Invitational All Set For Saturday/Sunday 19th/20th Nov

We have a professional photographer on both days. He does take some wonderful pictures and we will have these uploaded to the Touch Association Facebook site within 5 days following the tournament.


We will randomly select representatives from teams for post-match interviews which will be uploaded on both Facebook and Instagram.

Please advise security that you are there for  The Touch Tournament and the Team Name you are representing. The campus will be very busy on both days with three events taking place so I would recommend getting there with plenty of time spare. It’s a packed agenda so we want to be running like clockwork to get through it all.


There is an underground parking lot at the end of Building E. You can also park in the driveway in front of C, D and E.  There is also coupon parking next to the HDB's and across the street from the main entrance.  People will not be allowed to park in the fire lane right next to the stadium and north fields.

There will be water coolers with iced water throughout the day. In addition there will be tents set up on the fields to provide shade whilst out on the playing fields. We will be making use of the PA system so please listen out for all announcements. TAS has arranged for medics to be on hand.


We are very proud at being able to put this tournament at zero cost to the participants including provision of all the referees and hope that it will be a great event leading to further development of junior touch not only in Singapore but the region. A huge thank you to Mimi and the Singapore American School for providing access to their facilities.

Nanyang Polytechnic Takes Out POL-ITE Title 2016

Touch POL-ITE 2016 concluded last week with Nanyang Polytechnic (pictured) emerging as Champions after a hard fought 3-2 win over Temasek Polytechnic in the Final watched by many. Singapore Polytechnic finished 3rd followed by Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic & the Institute of Education in one of the most competitive POL-ITEs in years.

These local teams will now turn their attention to the SAS Invitational this weekend, where they will have the opportunity to play many different international schools in Asia. It will be a truly interesting clash of styles and fantastic exposure for all teams in our 62 Team tournament this weekend.

Come down to Singapore American School Saturday 19th Npvember 8:00-4:30pm and Sunday 20th November 8:00am -12:30pm to watch the best of Schools Touch in Pan Asia Pacific

SAS Invitational Junior Touch Tournament 2016

We are just about complete with the draw and will be in a position to provide that to everyone early next week. It is a very busy tournament with 66 teams confirmed to compete from six countries. Over 90% of teams are school based teams so this will lead in well for next year when this tournament will be designated as the Pan Asia All Schools Premier Tournament.
The U20 Girls division is a huge one with 24 teams competing and very pleasing to see the U20 Boys division increase to 10 teams from only a handful at the start of 2016. What is even more pleasing is the number of boys teams now participating at the U10, U12 and U14 age groups.
We are very proud at being able to put this tournament at zero cost to the participants including provision of all the referees and hope that it will be a great event leading to further development of junior touch not only in Singapore but the region. A huge thank you to Mimi and the Singapore American School for providing access to their facilities.

30+ New Referees Added To TAS Ranks

30+ new referees will join the 120+ referees already refereeing. TAS provides these courses FREE of charge including a thunderer whistle for each new referee. With TAS looking after so many participants of touch in Singapore, we need to ensure that referees continue to be added and developed. Special thanks to Chris Mead for giving up his Sunday to conduct the course and UWC East for providing the facilities for the course. This is what collaborating as a community is all about.

As a curtain raiser to the TAS Singapore AllStars Vs Daveta Rugby Fiji Touch match, the best women's sevens players in Singapore will be showcasing women's sevens rugby.

Come down to Turf City TRC Stadium this Saturday the 29th at 2:30pm to watch two great games.

Daveta Rugby Fiji In Town

Daveta Rugby Fiji are now in town and immediately out and about sharing their knowledge and warmth to the children of Singapore. What a great opportunity for the Tanglin U14 girls to play a friendly match against the Fijian Olympic Gold Medalists. 

It's opportunities like this that all of us at TAS will continue to bring to the benefit of all the children involved in sport in Singapore. As parents, nothing is more rewarding than seeing a smile on a child's face.

Thank You SHANGHAI Touch

THANK YOU - SHANGHAI Touch Association. Not enough praise can be said about this team of volunteer organisers. Despite all the hurdles and road blocks placed in front of them leading up to the tournament, they still managed to put on as ALWAYS the best run tournament in Asia. Over 50 teams from all over Asia and New Zealand including four teams from Singapore made their way up to Shanghai and to see the unified approach of all the participants despite the hurdles was very pleasing for the development of touch. Thank you to all the referees that came up and we enjoyed being refereed by you. The New Zealand contingent of players and referees were wonderful and the Haka performance was truly memorable. For 2017, we will keep the SITT weekend TAS League free so that many more teams from Singapore will have the opportunity to come up and experience the Shanghai Tournament. Once again a very big SINCERE thank you and from all of us in Singapore we look forward to 2017.

SAS Invitational Capacity Reached

Straits Times Covers TAS

At TAS we have worked tirelessly to try and garner greater media exposure for the sport of Touch in Singapore. Through the great support of Tanglin Rugby Club, Daveta Rugby and some wonderful individuals (you know who you are) we have managed for the first time in Singapore history to have Touch mentioned in the National Publication "Straits Times". To clarify, Tanglin Rugby Club "organised the rugby coaching clinics".
We hope to foster a healthy relationship with the Straits Times and continue the positive coverage. Thank you Straits Times for taking this initial step. Here is a link to the article that was also in print form from Saturday 8th October.

Be Trained By The BEST In The WORLD

TAS Exceeding Growth Plans

Given the unprecedented growth of Touch in Singapore, it is timely to ensure the broader Touch community of the transparency of TAS which is clearly articulated in the Strategic Three Year Growth Plan. This plan outlines the background on the formation of TAS and also the vision of the committee over the next three years.

We are all volunteers at TAS and the beneficiaries of TAS are the participants.

SAS Touch Invitational 2016

The SAS Invitational 2016 will bring together Juniors from across the region to participate in what will be another exciting tournament for the junior touch participants. We already have teams confirmed from Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan which will provide for further diversification of opponents and new friendships to be made. The fun and exciting DASH for CASH will be a highlight with a slight variation this time round as we introduce a relay style.


The attached flyer provides the basic details with specific details of the tournament proceedings to be sent through as we draw nearer to the date. Teams entrants will be restricted so I would encourage nominations early to avoid disappointment. With the support of the Singapore American School and TAS, the SAS invitational will be provided FREE of charge to all teams.


At this early planning stage it is envisaged that for U10 Girls, U12 Girls plus all boysU10,  U12 and U14 games and finals will be concluded on the Saturday. All other age groups will play pool games on Saturday and will return on Sunday for finals.


This plan is to negate the potential weather disruptions that could be expected during that time of year. Any questions, please get in touch with me.

Touch Expands To The Police Sports Association

Today the Singapore Police Sports Association will be hosting an internal police divisional Touch Tournament proudly supported by TAS. Fantastic to see the adoption of Touch by the civil servants and we now have many of the civil servants playing regularly within the AAM Advisory League.

Singapore All Stars Trials

Following the news of the Daveta Rugby V Singapore All Stars game and the short time frame to get everything organized, this triggered a chain of events which included a number of matches that were required to be moved around in order to accommodate timing where we could accommodate the majority of the initial batch of players that could  trial.

For clarity, and with respect to timing and field space we approached all the representatives of the Men’s Premier League teams to garner interest and a total of 38 players expressed interest.

Logistically, we can only trial 28 players this Saturday during the 4:10 slot and therefore the remaining players will be able to trial on Monday Evening at 7:30pm at TRC Stadium. If there are any other players that wish to trial on Monday, please contact:

Liang Sheng:



It has not been the smoothest process but the best that we could manage given the relatively small window to get this all done and take advantage of such a great opportunity.  Thank you for everyone’s cooperation and look forward to seeing people out and about either tonight at the CCTT Corporate Tournament, AAM Advisory League tomorrow or Sunday at the CCTT Junior Tourney.

A HUGE weekend of Touch indeed.

Touch Action From Round 1

We breathed a sigh of relief having gotten through round 1 successfully. True to the community spirit fostered within TAS, referees stood up when it counted and we managed to fulfill every fixture with two referees (with 76 teams it is quite a task each weekend). Speaking to a number of teams old and new on Saturday, everyone was just happy to be out and about playing competition touch again. Pictured below is what pretty much sums up what we are all about – providing a unified inclusive platform so touch can be played with mates, fathers, sons, daughters and a few laughs shared afterwards with a cleansing ale.


Pictures of round 1 will be gradually uploaded onto our Facebook Site during the week. There are some awesome action shots so check them out and show the grandkids you still have it.


 Round 1 results are alredy updated updated under the fixtures and results tab.


There is a slight change to the schedule due to the unavailability of the grounds. Below is our final schedule for the league.

For the interest of Touch participants within TAS and the broader Touch community, the Strategic Three Year Growth Plan outlines the background on the formation of TAS and also the vision of the committee over the next three years.

Influence Of A HERO

Keeping with the INSPIRATIONAL theme, back in 2008 and then as a 12 year old, Joseph Schooling met one of his heroes that had inspired him when he visited Singapore - Michael Phelps.

As we all know now, Joseph beat Michael by 0.75 seconds and has the Olympic record and of course the GOLD Medal. Great example of following your dreams and never giving up no matter the challenges.

Singapore's First Olympic Gold Medal - INSPIRATIONAL

TAS salutes Joseph Schooling on his historic achievement in Rio and Singapore's first Gold Medal at the 2016 Olympics!

Hard work and perseverance all paying off on the big day - what a great way to start Singapore's 51st Year!

Two weeks until tap off - We hope you have a all been training like Joseph and remember from the 76 teams there can be only 9 Division Champions !

SCDF Inter - Unit TouchTournament

One of our key objectives was to facilitate the growth of Touch at the grassroots level and get more people interested in playing the game. By providing transparent access for groups such as the Singapore Civil Defence Force to coordinate inter-unit competitions, it nurtures the game where it is needed most. TAS will assist the Singapore Civil Defence Force with provision of referees. Some of the SCDF players will be part of teams along with the Singapore Prison Services team that will also participate in the upcoming TAS Touch Championships.
Truly great to see all parts of the community get involved. Keep up the great work NAZ and team.

Terrence - Happy 51st National Day Singapore

Name - Terence

 What it means to be Singaporean?

Many things. We were once a small colony, now evolved into a buzzing cosmopolitan country. The path was not easy with our forefathers toiling to pave the way for the quality of life we enjoy now. Singaporeans are unique and special with the diverse cultures and languages not being a barrier to co-exist. Singapore has many things to be proud of and I am happy to be part of it.

What it means to play touch for Singapore?

It's always an honour to represent your country. To know that you are representing your people, you have to give your all on the field! With TAS serving the Singapore Touch Community now, I am confident that we will continue to have Singapore's best players representing the nation.

National Day message to the Singapore Touch Community

Very proud of the Singapore Touch Community this year for taking the step to support TAS. Touch has grown faster this year than ever before - it's wonderful to see so many people being able to play again. Remember to always give back to the sport you love! Looking forward to seeing everyone on the field in the upcoming season!  Happy National Day all!

Tsunami Sportswear Partners With TAS

Thank You - TSUNAMI

Corporate sponsorship is a key element in the success of any administration, particularly Not For Profit Associations such as TAS. Many corporates highlight community and corporate social responsibility as one of the key reasons in supporting but just as important is building newer and deeper community networks. 

Every cent and benefit in kind that TAS receives all goes towards providing a stable platform for the continued growth of touch for the Singapore community and importantly to the people that need it most which is grassroots.

Thank You to Tsunami for the partnership with TAS and trust that we will assist Tsunami with further brand differentiation and strengthening amongst our network and of course the benefit to TAS over the next few years and beyond.

What it means to be Singaporean?
Being Singaporean means I get to eat all the great food from many various cuisines without having to travel.
Food aside, it also means being a part of a small country that went from nothing to something, which is also what makes me proud to call Singapore my home.
What it means to play touch for Singapore?
Donning a Singapore jersey is an honour as we get to represent our local Touch community at international tournaments. At these platforms, we also get to meet with and play against other players from around the world and are exposed to higher skilled and faster paced games.

Happy birthday Singapore! Let's continue to display the Singapore spirit through our sport and stay united regardless of our differences.

Jazreel - Happy 51st National Day Singapore

What it means to be Singaporean?
The mere association to Singapore gives me a sense of immense pride. The closer ones would probably know that I am closet patriot! There's so many things to be thankful about being a Singaporean. To co-exist harmoniously among the different ethnic groups and reside in a cultural society. To enjoy a wide variety of food, to live in a clean and green city with low crime rates, be served by an effective and efficient government, our home is in order and we are safe. To be known as the little red dot but yet we made our mark on the world map! It's a 'privilege' to be born and bred here and I'm grateful for that.
What it means to play touch for Singapore?
It is an honour to represent the country. The experience is humbling and rewarding - to perform under great pressure and see the game at the highest stage. It also means an opportunity to make another mark for Singapore and the sport!
Your National day message to the Touch Community:
We cannot let the years and others rob away what makes Singapore special- our history, childhood and cultural strings to the nation. With progression, changes are inevitable. Embrace positive developments with contentment and take ownership towards the change you want to see. Be it as a citizen of Singapore or a player in the touch community, we need to stay together and true to what we believe in. Special mention to TAS for bringing the Touch community together for a better and selfless future!
I believe in the power of hope and I hope that we will feel more deeply and be purposeful & responsible for the causes we champion, as a community and eventually a nation. Happy National Day!

Apart from it being a tremendous honour, nothing more rewarding than seeing your hard work payoff and having a blast on tour. For me it's also a chance to do proud the people who've taught, guided and given me opportunities over the years.
Your message for the touch community
Not many people know this but the people in charge of TAS are completely unpaid volunteers - yet achieving unprecedented growth and development of touch here in Singapore. If you know who they are, do take a moment to let them know what a great job they are doing. Happy national day everyone! Cheers

What it means to play touch for Singapore?
To me, playing touch for Singapore means training hard and doing my best to improve as a player to represent my country and do the nation, my family and friends proud by showing others how far the sport has developed and evolved in Singapore.

KhaiRullah - Happy 51st National Day Singapore

Name: KhaiRullah
What it means to be Singaporean?
Being a Singaporean to me is about preserving what is unique to us. The diverse culture, language and of course food. Singaporeans have by far formed a commendable level of tolerance between us. This diversity and tolerance must be embedded within the generations to come.
What it means to play touch for Singapore?
Having played touch for a while, I've seen the sport grow significantly, especially with TAS leading the way. I will say touch in Singapore is still growing and to garner more appreciation in Touch, we need to make it affordable to every keen individual, opening up avenues for social teams and clubs while keeping the competition healthy.
Your National Day message to Singapore Touch Community
Change is sometimes necessary for growth, change can also challenge your values and beliefs. Changes were necessary to build Singapore to what it is today. Hopefully, with TAS leadership, our voices will be heard and we can all embrace these changes and share its benefits as a nation.

What does it mean to be a Singaporean?
I have always prided myself for being a Singaporean because of the multi-cultural society and the diversity of nationalities in this sovereign city state. At 27 years old, to tell any visitor that you know friends of at least 6 nationalities residing in Singapore will always amaze and inspire them.
What it means to play Touch for Singapore?
Representing Singapore at the highest stage let's me share the wonderful country Singapore is. Being able to display the level of Touch Singapore has at an international stage is a dream come true ever since I was introduced to the sport, a decade ago. Furthermore, the respect and recognition given by players from other countries is another memorable part of the wonderful journey of being a touch player in Singapore.

1. What it means to be Singaporean
Being a Singaporean means we are able to enjoy any kind of food at anytime of the day. From hawker centres to fancy restaurants to even uber for food. Nothing can stop a true blue Singaporean from enjoying what they like to do most – EATING!
Singlish is another trademark of being a Singaporean that even oxford dictionary has added some of them now! Hahahah...
So I can say that I am proud to be born and bred in Singapore, knowing that Singapore will always be a safe and peaceful country that even foreigners enjoy living here.
2. What it means to play touch for Singapore
Playing Touch Football for Singapore has been a good opportunity for me. Not only do I get to play the sport that I am passionate about but to travel and see the world. It’s like killing 2 birds with 1 stone. Besides traveling and playing, I also have the opportunity to earn my Level 4 referee badge in Australia where top notch referees and players come together to play in a high level Touch Football. That was really insane!
3. Your National Day message to Singapore Touch Community
Happy National Day Singapore! Looking forward to many more years of playing, refereeing, coaching and giving back to the community in the Touch scene.

TAS Touch Championship (TTC) UPDATE

We are very pleased to announce that as of today we have received a total of 78 team registrations to play in the upcoming TTC. That’s an increase of 28 teams from season one. Those that are keen on numbers this equates to over 50% growth in players, something that everyone should be proud of as it’s your competition your association.  Continuing on the numbers theme, we now have over 1800 followers on Instagram in only a space of 7 months. The social media reach cannot be underestimated as our numbers indicate that on a national touch association basis this puts TAS in the top three National Associations globally. We will shortly publish our half year set of financial accounts on our website. The key takeout from our accounts is that we were able to offer the league at a minimal fee of $1,000 per team and still have a surplus of $13,000.


The strong 20+ volunteer committee (which includes some very senior leaders of multi-national companies) are dedicated to ensure we continue to be as professional as we can in everything that we do.


Based on the team nominations that came through the statistics are currently as follows:




Total Teams


Premier League



B Grade



C Grade



D Grade





Total Men’s







Premier League



B Grade



C Grade





Total Women’s







Premier League



B Grade



C Grade





Total Mixed






Total Teams Overall




Please note final teams in each division will change following the first two rounds of grading, particularly as we aim to have no more than 8 to 9 teams per division. The rationale behind this from feedback in season one was to have each team play each other once where possible and also to ensure that each division is evenly matched in terms of playing ability. Thus for example following round 2, the women’s B Grade will have 9 teams and the women’s C Grade will have 12 teams. Similarly for the men’s category, B Grade would be 9 teams, C Grade 9 teams and D Grade 11 teams.


Question – Can we accommodate all 78 teams?


We are working with Tangling Rugby Club to gain access to more pitches and confident that we will be able to come up with a format that will accommodate all teams. However, please note that in the unlikely event that we are required to reduce teams then priority will be based on a first to register first to pay basis.

TAS Boost Touch Participation by 44% In 6 Months

With a trusted framework now firmly in place a across all levels of touch, the Singapore Touch community have now come out in force with a staggering 72 teams currently registered for the upcoming TAS Touch Championship (TTC) commencing Saturday 27th August 2016. This represents an increase of just under 400 new players.  This growth is currently isolated to the open category as data for the junior category is currently being compiled.

Many of the new teams registering are coming from the Junior Colleges system where they enjoyed their first taste of TAS leagues when they participated in the 8 round NJCC in the first half of 2016.

Great to see their enthusiasm in forming their own teams amongst friends and out and about enjoying touch. 

New teams to join include: Team JJ, X-Kingsmen, UDON and Nanyang Technological University (NTU)

TAS Grows Touch Participation by 33% In Just Six Months

The registrations keep on rolling in, that's right 68 TEAMS have registered so far for the upcoming TAS Touch Championships (TTC) which commences Saturday 27th August. That's a growth of over 300 players (33% increase) in the space of just 6 months. This means TAS will have over 1200 players participating on a weekly basis in the league. It's going to be a huge high quality league as we restrict the B grade teams to eight teams per category thus opening up a larger pool of teams in all the C Grade categories with similar playing ability ensuring teams also enjoy competitive games. We welcome the following new teams: Coconut Water, National University Singapore (NUS), RP Storm, Monsoon Barbarians, Legiste Aubergines and NP Starburst.

62 Teams Registered - SINGAPORE RECORD

In only six months, TAS has managed to set a Singapore RECORD registering 62 teams in the upcoming TAS Touch Championships(TTC). Ten weeks remain before tap off and we will continue to accept teams. This now represents 95% of the touch playing population in Singapore playing in the TAS leagues. It's a true reflection of the confidence the Singapore touch community has in TAS to develop, nurture and support the growth of touch across all levels. The most pleasing aspect of the team registrations is that 70% of the teams registered are local Singaporean teams at the grassroots level - which is the backbone of any sport. 


Touch is an amateur sport and as TAS is a Not For Profit Association under the guidance of dedicated volunteers, every cent that is generated is invested back into the game. 

Some of the new teams to join the league include, Scoopastars, RPX, Phat Kids, YNC Heroes, Centaurs Warhorses, Centaurs Family Guys, Blue Thunder, Chop It and the mighty REBELS.

Keep the registrations coming in as EVERYONE is welcome to play touch.

50 Teams Registered - On Track For Singapore RECORD

50 teams have now registered for the TAS Touch Championships(TTC).A new Singapore record will be set as we expect 60+ teams to particpate in the 10 week league. This represents over 90% of the touch playing community in Singapore. Capacity is about to be reached only after two weeks of opening up registrations proving the popularity of the TAS competitions.

So far we welcome new teams,Kingsmen, Spangels,TRC Eagles, TRC Harriers, Centaurs Warhorses and Centaurs Family Guys just to name a few. 

If you haven't registered, please do so ASAP to avoid disappointment.


Thirty (30) Teams Already Registered for the TTC

Only one and half weeks after opening up registrations and we have received 30 team registrations for the TAS Touch Championship (TTC) commencing Saturday August 27.  The second season will be bigger and better than season one and we expect to hit maximum team capacity of 60.

Singapore Junior Touch Championship - An AERIAL Perpective

At the Singapore Junior Touch Championship we used a drone to capture an aerial perspective of the tournament.

You can view this from the following links:





Hopefully everyone enjoyed the sausages provided by SideCar hand Crafted Sausages on Grand Final day. Sincere thanks to Matthew Talbot and team for supporting TAS and looking after us all afternoon. It's through collaboration with sponsors such as SideCar that TAS are able to put on such a great day for everyone. Lets make an effort to support those that support us. For the month of May 2016, there will be a $5 discount on any order, usual price is $28 per kilo. Just mention TAS when placing an order online. FB and Webiste details:


It’s Grand Final weekend and across all grades the games will be extremely competitive. We start off the grand finals with the womens B grade at 2:30pm and will end the grand finals with the mens premier league at 5:50pm – Friendlies will be played around the grand finals.

 Teams that made the grand finals have worked hard to get there so where possible we should stick around and support these games. Let’s make this an enjoyable afternoon and one that is different from our normal rounds.


TAS will be putting on a FREE BBQ starting at 3pm and we have engaged the services of Matthew Talbot and James Barrie from Fine Palate. Fine Palatewill be putting on top end thick sausages on a pretzel gourmet bun and onions. (Italian, Thai and Aussie BBQ). Plenty of onions and sauces to compliment.  We have sampled the sausages from Fine Palate and I can assure you they are GOLD.

If you like what you taste, please speak to Matthew and James who will be taking control of the BBQ like all good Aussies. So bring your eskies and children and enjoy the afternoon.


Bucks Touch Clubwill be sponsoring 100 pluses for the day which will be in the large orange ice bins. With my Bucks hat on, I wish to convey that as a club, Bucks have truly enjoyed being part of the competition and this is just one way we can give back to the touch community (keep your hands off our TIGERS though!)  


We will have a professional snapper who will be at the grounds from 1pm to 6pm hopefully catching some great action and social shots. We had him at the Singapore Junior Touch Tournament last week and his work was quite awesome (see TAS Facebook). I will endeavor to get these shots up on our Facebook site as soon as I get them from him.


All medal presentations will follow immediately at the conclusion of each Grand Final. This will slightly delay the start of the subsequent matches but won’t be too much of an issue as they deserve the time to bask in the glory.

Singapore Junior Touch Championships (SJTC)

Singapore Junior Touch Championships

Thank you to the Singapore American School and our sponsors CISCO, IRESS and AAM Advisory for making TAS's first SJTCs a fantastic success. To see so many new teams and new faces playing touch in Singapore was wonderful. Particular thanks goes to SAS's Mimi Molchan who ensured Singapore's best facilities for touch were perfectly set up for us. SAS is a great supporter of TAS and provided all the fields free of charge to us on Saturday. That allows us to make this a free tournament to all the participants. The All Stars matches played at such high standard in front of 700 cheering fans in the grandstand is surely a new high for touch in Singapore.

All you juniors remember we will be running U10s, U12s and U14 competitions for boys and girls in the second half of the year. Older kids enter your team in the TAS open winter league.

Want to improve prior to that? Email about free coaching assistance for your team.

Touch Association Singapore


With big crowds, top quality playing surface and and a high standard of play, the All Stars concept was a huge success. The womens match finished in a dramatic drop off whilst the mixed match show cased future superstar Timothy Pan (pictured) to the u12/u14 boys how fast, dynamic and skillful touch is.

Over 700+ people watched the matches and provided a great atmosphere which the players were very appreciative. In addition running commentary was added to the match providing valuable information to the crowd.


Hopefully these matches will inspire the juniors to take up or continue their involvement with touch.

Result: IRESS Womens All Stars defeated CISCO Womens All Stars in a drop off 7 to 6

Result: CISCO Mixed All Stars defeated IRESS Mixed 9 to 7

Thankyou to everyone involved.


Singapore's best touch players will play two exhibition matches this Saturday during the Singapore Junior Touch Championship (SJTC) held at the Singapore American School Woodlands. 26 of the 56 All Stars have represented Singapore at previous world cups and combined with this experience are a new crop of up and coming young talent.

Womens All Stars tap off at 11:55am

Singapore JUNIOR All Star Series

Without doubt, many of us are involved with Junior Touch in one form or another and have witnessed some brilliant touch played.

To provide an additional platform for these elite Juniors to strive towards, for the first time in Singapore, TAS will be running the Junior All Star Series for U14, U16 and U20's.

These Juniors will have the opportunity to be mentored by Singapore World Cup players and be coached by 2015 World cup coaches.These games will be showcased during the TAS WTC providing a deserved great atmosphere for them. Participating in these lead up tournaments and the TAS Junior League commencing in September will ensure you put yourself forward with the best opportunity for selection. Selection process, sponsors, playing strips will all be unveiled as we draw closer to the date. As an administrator, our responsibility is to source sponsorship for these events so that they can be provided at No Costs. We envisage these initiatives will bring more Juniors to the great game of Touch.

National Junior College Championships (NJCC)

It's great to be able to support the growth of GRASSROOTS touch which is key to TAS's mission and vision. The clear objective is to ensure that touch is affordable and accessible to all that wish to take up the sport. The longer term objective is to increase the populairty of touch through the schooling system so that touch does become a recognised CCA. The majority of external coaches at these colleges are all dedicated volunteers and through TAS we will assist further with mentoring programs for them.

The NJCC will be run over 4 weeks and will commence Saturday 2nd April. Post this championship, these girls will then have the opportunity to join the TAS WTC in the 2nd half of 2016 and further develop their game. Again, thanks to all our volunteers and in particular Terrence Toh for putting it all together.

This Weeks Team- WHO

Team on focus this week is WHO. After four rounds and a game to catch up on, WHO is sitting in 6th place in the Women's B grade competition which has 12 teams in total. A lovely bunch of ladies enjoying their touch and pushing for a few more wins to get into the all important top four.
