Girls competition- Must be girls only in teams.
Boys competition– If you want to enter a team of boys & girls it must be registered in the boys competition.
U7s & U9s– As these age groups are played on a half size field there is 5 players at any given time on the field. We recommend a maximum of 3 reserves, which makes 8 players in one team as total. You are able to have more it is up to you.
Under 11s up to 17s– Is played on a full size field, with 6 players on the field at any given time. Again we recommend a maximum of 3 reserves in park touch competition. Some teams choose to have a few more as they know players will miss games during the season.
Rep players in teams- We have a rule of only 3 representative players in a team. If you played Junior State Cup 2017 you are a current rep player. Example- if your turning 10 this year you should register in the Under 11 comp. If you decide to play up a division in the Under 13s you are not classed as a rep player.
Girls- If your a rep player and play in the boys division you are not classed as rep players.
We appreciate that everyone understands this rule as it is ‘park touch’ not ‘rep touch’ on a Friday night.
Borrowing players- The minimum amount of players you can have in your team before it is a forfeit is 4 players. You are able to borrow players from the age group below you if you need fill ins. Please be considerate of the other team and let them know you have borrowed players. It is not in the spirit of the game to always borrow rep players ‘just to get the win’. If we notice teams doing this on a weekly basis you will lose competition points.
There are no Rep player rules in the Mens & Mixed. In the Womens division there are to be no rep players unless there is an A and B division which will be dependant on registration numbers.
Divisions- Mens A, B, C, D, Mixed & Womens.
When registering a senior team all teams must have 10 players as a minimum. We recommend you are 14 years of age before you play in the adult comp. Younger than 14 will be on the discretion of Northern Beaches Touch Committee.
