The NSW Touch Association (NSWTA) Junior State Cup, held every year in the third weekend of February in Port Macquarie, attracts around 360 teams, with approximately 6,500 players and officials in attendance. Approximately 20,000 people converge on Port Macquarie for a fantastic few days of great touch footy.
This event is when touch football clubs from all over NSW combine to compete at this tournament to become crowned NSWTA State Champions.
In 2019, due to enormous growth, the Junior State Cup was split into Northern and Southern Conferences with finalists progressing to a State Final event.
