COMPETITION RULES: It is strongly advised that you first read and familiarise yourself with the rules which govern our competition.
GRADING: Where there are multiple grades for an age division the manager will be required to nominate a grade, the final decision regarding of each team will be at the discretion of the BJTA Committee having regard to player experience and previous results. This year there will be a limit of 4 JSC rep players per team, if a team has more than this limit they may be graded into a higher age division. The final grading decision will be at the discretion of the Committee. It is important to enter into the proper division having regard to the experience of your team. Balmain Junior Touch will review teams and players on registration and reserve the right to move into more appropriate divisions assessing from player experience and previous results before the competition commences. Our preference is to not have to move teams once the competition has commenced as it causes disruption and potential inequality to re-allocate teams in different divisions so it is important to choose correct division.
EQUIPMENT: Each team will be provided with a match ball and each player will receive a playing shirt. Only moulded boots are allowed, no metal studs.
TIMES: 25 minute games, touch down turnaround. The game times should be similar to previous years, ie younger ages play from 4.30pm and the older ages play progressively later until the 7.30pm time slot, times will be announced once registrations are finalised and the draw prepared.
DUAL REGO: Those players registering in 2 teams should be aware of possible time clashes. Please also be aware that no fixture adjustments will be made to accommodate individual players. A Division 1 player must register in a Division 1 second team. Please also be aware that no fixture adjustments will be made to accommodate players when Semis & GFs are scheduled as we cannot cater for all circumstances. So please choose carefully when registering in a second team. See below registration details.
SCHEDULE: the draft schedule is to play the first three rounds from 7 to 21 September, break for school holidays, return on 12 October for rounds 4 to 10 on 23 November and play finals on 30 November and 7 December. The schedule will be confirmed once registrations are completed.
