Frequently Asked Questions

Who supplies the playing uniform?

Playing singlets are included in the cost of registration. These will be reversible, with a predominantly yellow side and a predominantly green side. The draw will indicate which colour your team should be showing week to week.

Players are to wear their preferred shorts or bike pants – whatever is comfortable.

Touch or other grass sports shoes with plastic or rubber mouldings are recommended.

When do registrations close?

The scheduled close date for registrations is FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 2, but please note the following:

  1. In previous seasons when demand has been high, we have been forced to close off registrations earlier than expected for some divisions.
  2. Lead times are needed for ordering singlets. Leaving registration too late may mean your singlet is not available for round 1

What time are games played?

Time slots will be finalised once we have final team numbers. The following provides an indication of the likely timeslots.

Divisions
Division Name Day Times
U8’s Monday 5:00-6:00
U10’s Monday 5:00-6:00
U12 Girls Monday 6:00-7:00
U12 Boys Tuesday 5:00-7:30
U14’s Tuesday 6:30-8:30
U16’s Wednesday 5:30-6:30

Is it OK to play up an age division?

Yes.  Where friends or siblings want to play together, they can play up in an older age division. It is important to be aware that skill levels can be significantly different between age divisions. Parents will need to use their own judgement on the skills and confidence of the player wanting to play up an age division.

I want to register more than 1 player as an individual, can you ensure they end up in the same team?

Absolutely.  Once registered, send an email to info@hillshornetstouch.com with their names requesting same team placement.

How many players per team?

For Under 8’s and Under 10’s, there are 5 players on a field at a time (playing on a half size field).  A minimum of 7 registered players is required.

All other divisions are 6 a side, requiring a minimum of 8 registered players as mandatory.

The number of subs is always a bit of a balancing act. Too many subs can mean players don’t get long enough on the field, too few and players get too tired and lose enjoyment. Aiming for 3-4 subs per game is usually a good rule of thumb.

I want to register a team, but I'm a few players short. Can you help?

Absolutely.  Send an email to info@hillshornetstouch.com with your team name once registered and the number of additional players you would like.  We will allocate players from our individual player registration pool.

Do you have mixed divisions for juniors?

No.  But this is something we are considering for the future. In the mean time you can enter a mixed team into the equivalent age boys division. This has been done by teams in previous seasons.

I've never played touch football before, can you cater for beginners?

Absolutely.  At Hills Hornets Touch we welcome everybody. Register yourself, and we will find you a team that can accommodate your experience and skill level. In the earlier weeks of competition, we have our representative and elite level coaches out at the fields and available to teams to learn more about the game.
