Important COVID-19 Information

Townsville Junior Touch Football, including all of our members, spectators, and officials, are required to adhere to all relevant state and federal regulations and laws regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The following are some important things you need to know about being involved in one of our competitions during this time:

  1. All persons present at Queens Park (our competition venue) during competition hours MUST check-in using our online check-in system (available from www.tjt.org.au/checkin or by scanning a QR Code at the venue).
  2. Failing to check-in is a breach of the QLD Government's laws and regulations and may also result in teams or players forfeiting their match, and/or not being eligible to play in the finals series.
  3. Townsville Junior Touch Football is bound by determinations made by our parent body (Townsville Touch Football), and state (Queensland Touch Football) and national (Touch Football Australia) governing bodies surrounding the safe conduct of touch football competitions during this pandemic. Should state/federal health authorities determine that community sport be halted due to the pandemic, the Townsville Junior Touch Football Executive Committee will determine the best course of action for the competition and will advise all participants once able to. This may result in the complete cancellation of the competition, as was the case in 2020.
