2017 Co-Ed Touch Footy League

Join us for the co-ed, non-contact version of Australia’s favorite game. Footy is a game based on Australian Football (which is NOT rugby). It is a fun-filled, energetic, co-educational, tag version of the game. This laid back social league is a great way for beginners from children to adults to try the sport. New players are mixed in with veteran players to ensure healthy competition, and skills training is provided for all new players.

What is Footy?

Imagine soccer, volleyball and basketball rolled into one cool game where everyone gets to be the quarterback at the same time. Another way to think about it is that Footy is like Ultimate Frisbee, with a few twists. The ball is passed quickly from player to player by either handpassing or kicking. There is no turnover rule, so the ball is almost always “live” resulting in a fast, free flowing game where everyone is involved. Scoring is usually frequent, so games are not only fun to play, but fast and exciting to watch!

The rules are simple and easy to learn (it will take about 10 minutes) and NO EXPERIENCE is required. In fact, we encourage it as the game is designed for complete novices! We’ll supply all the gear all you need to do is come dressed to play in shorts and shoes (cleats if you have them, they are not necessary).

There will be Social Events after each Co-Ed Footy Match starting with the 10th anniversary of our World Famous Pie Day on March 11, 2017!
