Frequently Asked Questions

Who supplies the playing uniform?

For the first time, playing singlets are included in the cost of registration. Playing singlets will be reversible, with a predominantly yellow side and a predominantly maroon side.

All players will be required to wear plain black shorts as part of the uniform.  This means no club shorts are to be worn.

The draw will indicate which colour should be showing week to week.

When do registrations close?

The scheduled close date for registrations is the 25th August, 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. Those who don’t register by the early bird cut off (2nd of August) may not receive their playing singlet by 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 5:30-7:00
U12’s Tuesday 4:30-7:00
U14’s Tuesday 6:00-7:30
U16’s Wednesday 5:00-7:00

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?

All teams must register a minimum of 8 players.  This is a new mandatory requirement.

For Under 8’s and Under 10’s, there are 5 players on a field at a time (playing on a half size field).  All other divisions are 6 a side.

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.

This season we are also going to make available our representative and elite level coaches available to teams to learn more about the game.

You can also check out our Basics of touch page for an introduction on how the game is played.
There are also some highlight videos you can watch on Hornets TV.
