Manly Touch would like to advise that we are continuing to monitor the current situation on the restrictions around community sport.
We are desperate for our members to get back out on the field to play some touch footy.
Although the path back to community sport is still unknown, what we can give you is our commitment that once we are given the all clear from the NSW Government and NSWTA we will proceed with our Junior and Senior summer registration process. However, we will still need to adhere to the Public Health Order and any restrictions that are placed on us. We will also need to be flexible with the timeframes that are available to us. This may mean that our Junior competition could be held either pre and/or post the New Year, similar to our Senior Competition.
To the players, coaches and referees involved in Vawdon Cup, unfortunately we are in a holding pattern. But what we do know is NSWTA will do everything they can to hold this event. However, given we are running out of weekends, it is likely that Vawdon Cup could be held over just one weekend. This changes your fitness requirements (one game per Friday night vs multiple games over the weekend). You need to have a plan in place so you are ready to go with limited notice and preparation. Your coaches will be reaching out to you to discuss this.
Likewise, we have every intention of sending teams to 2021 Senior State Cup and 2022 Junior State Cup and are working to a plan that these events will take place as per the original dates published by NSWTA. In the coming days we will be releasing a Player Expression of Interest for both SSC and JSC, and also an EOI for our SSC Coaches. Please keep a look out for these and complete them as soon as possible.
We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding. Continue to stay safe, keep fit and healthy, and make sure you take steps to improve your mental fitness via Gotcha4Life.
We look forward to seeing you soon, but if you have any questions please feel free to reach out via firstname.lastname@example.org
