About touch

Touch is an exciting and inclusive game played by teams of six players that promotes the fundamental skills of running, passing, catching, evasion, and support play. 

Played by participants of all ages and genders, Touch develops basic attack and defence skills in a minimal contact environment. Unlike other football-related codes such as Rugby Union, Rugby League and Soccer Football, Touch is also played in mixed-gender formats as well as men’s and women’s teams.
