Primary School Touch Affiliates
Our Primary School Touch Program affiliates, which include Algester SS, MacGregor SS, Pullenvale SS, Kuraby SS as well as students from Warrigal Road SS and Runcorn Heights SS have been invited to send their high performing touch athletes to attend our Touch Football Excellence Academy sessions. The sessions will help our primary school counterparts improve their skills and knowledge of the game, we're looking forward to seeing them on the footy field.
All Schools Touch Tournament
Our Horizons Program Touch Football Excellence Academy students have begun training for the World All Schools Touch competition which will be played in early October. This year, we will enter a 15 boys' team, a 15 girls' team and an open mixed team. We're enthusiastic to see the number of touch football athletes attending All Schools training increase by 15%, particularly in the younger age groups.
Horizons Program – Touch Football Excellence Academy Captain
Our senior students have continued to do an excellent job mentoring and guiding our younger Touch Football Excellence Academy students. One student in particular, Nelson Harkness, has recently been awarded as the Touch Football Excellence Academy Captain. Through his hard work, responsible behaviour and passion for motivating others, Nelson has consistently proven himself to be worthy of the title.
Nelson has a great team of senior Touch Excellence Academy students to assist him in his new role and we are sure he will continue to be a positive role model and guide his younger peers on their journey through High School. Congratulations Nelson!
Brisbane Metropolitan Touch Association (BMTA)
In the coming weeks, we will be entering teams in the BMTA Season 2 competition, due to start in late July. Currently we are looking to enter two mixed teams to play in the Adult competitions on a Monday night. If your child would like to be considered for these teams, please get in touch with Mr Bhullar (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This is an exciting opportunity for our students to participate in high-level competition and we thank our affiliate club, UQ Rebels, who are financially supporting our teams this year.
