What is Touch7s?
Touch7s is the non-contact version of Rugby7s and it’s chock full of all the things kids need right now: running around outside, dodging and weaving, and great fun!
Plus it’s super-easy to learn: you pick up the ball, dodge the opponents and score. You can run, pass or kick the ball (yes even AFL hand passes are ok!). It’s keepings-off, chassie and red rover rolled into one and once you start, you won’t want to stop! Millions of boys and girls around the world can’t be wrong, you’re gonna love Touch Rugby too!
So round up some friends, enter a team and swap some screen time for some green time. You’re going to love it!
In the interests of making Hawthorn Touch7s available for everyone, there is no requirement to purchase uniforms – players can compete in T-Shirt and shorts. We will supply bibs for one team in each match.
But we love the idea of a team t-shirt and we’ll even help design a logo for your team and find a maker, if you’d like to add a little more sparkle to your Summer!
