New touch season to kick off with muster
TOUCH: One of Warwick's biggest sports is set to start the first season for 2018 with a muster on Wednesday at 6.30pm at the Warwick Redbacks clubhouse.
Warwick Touch Association president Justin Nolan said six grades were played last season and he expected the same this season on a Wednesday night.
"The grades depend on numbers but we cater for players of all abilities,” he said.
"We have a mixed competition and three women must be on the field at all times.”
There is no limit to team numbers or interchanges in a sport with six on the field in each team.
Nolan said he was keen to attract individual as well as team nominations.
"Players not in a team are welcome to join up and we will try to place them in a team. We formed one team in each of the past two seasons from individual nominations,” he said.
"There is no minimum age but most of the younger children are in the same team as their parents.”
This season, games will be played on six fields, touch, Collegians, Eastern Suburbs and Cowboys rugby league fields, the Water Rats rugby oval and the Redbacks Aussie rules oval.
Nolan said already this season, one new player had expressed interest in travelling from Inglewood.
Rebels player Noah Dwan is heading into his fifth season of touch.
"We finished fourth in D grade last season and are aiming to make the grand final this season,” he said.
The season cost is $80 for seniors and $60 for juniors, 13 and under. All welcome at sign-on or you can make contact on Warwick Touch Footy facebook page.
