What's New for 2019/2020 Summer Season

There's been a few changes for this new season for Touch Football at Albert Park. read on to find out what has changed for the season ahead. 

The introduction of a Single Player Payment for teams

We’ve listened to your comments about paying team fees, and the difficulties teams sometimes have with players not playing, and the hassle of collecting fees.

Now teams have two ways to pay their fees! The team fee of $1,390 can be paid at the time of registration via Credit Card, or teams can elect to have their players pay individually. If teams choose this option, players will be charged $155 when they register.

This does come with a few important conditions:

  • Teams must register a minimum of 9 players by Round 5
  • Teams which have not registered this minimum number of players by this time will be invoiced for the outstanding balance of their team fees

Clarification around the use of fill in players

A couple of times recently, we’ve had teams play with almost all fill in players, and even win games, despite very few of the original team actually playing. We’ve made some changes to our conditions of entry, making the competition more fair for everybody, but still allowing and encouraging the usage of fill in players.

The introduction of a junior program for 2020

We are still working through the details of the program, however we will be rolling out a junior participation and competition program form January 2020, for 6 weeks of games, skills and coaching.
