Touch is played on a Friday night at Monrad Park, Highbury Ave, Palmerston North. The games are 6 aside and each team plays two games which are about 30 minutes each. The Touch fees are approximately $50. These may become cheaper if more players sign up. Fees will need to be paid in advance before playing. We have a no pay, no play policy. Students will need to purchase an Ashhurst School sports shirt from Academy Apparel (Palmerston North) to play in.

The first round of competition begins Friday, October 22. The last round will be December 3.

Registrations close Friday, August 27. Please note this date, as we will select teams the following week if required.
