Centaurs Touch will be changing in 2019.
Three key changes will be effective from January, with a view to provide more opportunities and progression to existing and prospective players:
Touch will expand to younger age groups in 2019 with the new minimum age of 5 years old. Coaching for Touch Academy (Juniors – age 5 to 12) is 3-5pm Sundays, with the option to play social Touch on Thursdays 7-9pm.
Touch Academy will continue to offer professional coaching, and is open to all ages 5 to adults. The sessions will be structured into the following initially:
(a) Juniors – age 5 to 12
(b) Beginners – age 13 to adult (basic skills for new players, D grade level)
(c) Intermediate – age 13 to adult (intermediate skills and plays, C grade level)
This pathway will offer “Advanced” (A & B grade level) in due course, creating pathways for competitive players to reach their highest potential. The Touch Academy train 3-5pm Sundays and have the option to play socially on Thursdays 7-9pm.
Social Touch will remain at Sundays 5-7pm. From January, Social Touch players are invited to join the Touch Academy for additional, complimentary social runs on Thursdays 7-9pm during Touch Academy term times.
