Registration fees per player per team for 2023/24 are $72 plus processing fee. Touch Football Australia has introduced an annual membership fee of $22 which includes GST, transaction fees and the cost of insurance. The payment process is completely online via the MySideline system and is payable the first time a participant registers into a competition after 1 July each year. The annual membership fee removes the duplication of affiliation fees for those who play multiple competitions.

2024 Winter Competition team & individual registrations are now open. Team registration closing date is Wednesday 10 April. Competitions are due to start Monday 15 April and finish Wednesday 17 July. Teams will be placed on referee duty throughout the competition.

All teams are required to have a minimum of 9 players registered and a maximum of 14. Teams need to have a minimum of 7 players registered before the first round to be included in the draw. Teams that forfeit 3 times will be withdrawn from the competition.
If you cannot field a team for a game you must notify us ASAP but NO LATER THAN 4pm GAME DAY. This allows us to contact the other team.

Games are 2 x 20 minute halves with a 5 minute half time break.

To play in the senior competition you must be in high school. The only exceptions to this is if you are a junior representative player playing with other adults in the team and your request to play has been approved by the senior committee.



Teams are required to organise and wear their own team playing shirts with numbers on the back.

To review the coverage available, we recommend all individuals to consider their personal circumstance and assess if additional external coverage is required outside of what is offered as part of membership to the affiliated structure of Touch Football Australia.
