Touch season launches off

TOUCH: New junior skills sessions will be held every Monday from 5pm in partnership with the Mundubbera Touch, an initiative to entice more juniors to take up the sport.

It is expected that six teams will be formed with the committee expecting final decisions by later this week.

Secretary Melinda Thorburn said she was excited about the season starting on Monday, February 12.

"We've got junior skills sessions on Monday and we're hoping this will draw in more young juniors to play touch,” Thorburn said.

"This will be run with the assistance of parents and the committee, underlying the family ethos of Mundubbera Touch.”

Thorburn said it was important that kids playing sport were supervised.

"They'll be able to develop their skills in a safe supervised environment,” she said.

On Monday the Mundubbera Touch hosted a social game with about 25 players in attendance.

Thorburn said touch was a game for everyone and encouraged those interested to take part this season.

"We're always looking for new players to join the team,” she said.

If you are interested in taking part next year, phone Melinda Thorburn on 0427951795.
