Touch Football/Rugby for women & girls
19 May 2019, 10:00-14:00
Women and girls - join us this exciting chance to try TOUCH FOOTBALL / RUGBY!
WHAT IS TOUCH FOOTBALL/ RUGBY?
Touch is a minimal contact sport which combines running, agility, passing, catching and communication.
The overall aim is for your team to score more touchdowns than your opponents. This is achieved by placing the ball in your opponents `Touchdown Zone’.
Teams play with 6 players on the field at any one time. Teams must move the ball down the field toward their `touchdown zone’, without passing the ball forward, dropping the ball on the ground or kicking it. Each team has six `touches’ before they need to handover the ball to their opponents. When touched an attacker must stop and `roll the ball’, unless it is the sixth touch.
There is NO tackling, lineouts, scrumming or kicking involved, making it ideal for ALL ages and abilities, from juniors to masters and from slight to heavy builds. BEGINNERS WELCOME:)
This is your chance to be coached by an expert who will run you through the basics and some practice activity, before having the opportunity to play some friendly mini-matches
