COVID-19 Update - 23rd June 2020
Hello Again Caboolture Touch Family,
I hope you are all managing to stay fit and well during these unprecedented times while we all struggle against COVID-19.
We have worked really hard and have completed our COVID-19 Safety Plan which means we can start working towards training and competitions (when the Queensland Government & Touch Football Australia allows us to play).
At this stage we have organised sessions on a Sunday morning via a booking system on our Facebook page - to ensure that we can safely continue these sessions all members participating in these session MUST make sure that they abide with the protocols as outlined in our COVID-19 Safety Plan and the instructions delivered by our volunteer Marshals and signage. Even though we have created a thorough COVID-19 Safety Plan, all members participate at their own risk.
Anyone who chooses to use the fields outside of the scheduled Caboolture Touch sessions (Sunday Mornings using the Facebook booking system) is highly encouraged to review the Queensland Government Health guidelines to ensure they are following their advice. Touch Football Australia also has some great resources available!
Please Note: Anyone using the fields outside of the Caboolture Touch endorsed sessions (Sunday mornings booked using the system on our Facebook page) does so at their own risk and is responsible for their own compliance to the Queensland Government requirements in relation to COVID-19.

Hello Caboolture Touch Family,
I hope you are all managing to stay fit, well and relatively sane (gotta love home schooling!) during these unprecedented times while we all struggle against COVID-19.
Touch Football Australia (TFA) has released information that touch football competitions will remain suspended and will not be able to start back in any format until 10th July 2020 at the earliest based on the guidelines and regulations released from the Government and the “Return to Play – Guide for sport, recreation and fitness industries”
We are awaiting on information, expected within the next week, which will give us clarity on how we start our return journey to touch competitions. You can read the latest update from Queensland Touch (QTF) here.
TFA and QTF have confirmed that when we return, we will be resuming season 1, 2020 meaning that all affiliation and insurance fees paid by our teams and players during early 2020 will be rolled over to continue the competition until its completion.
Please remember to adhere to social distancing guidelines at all times following the Queensland Government’s “Roadmap to Easing Restrictions”
If you have any old Caboolture Touch photos you would like posted on our Facebook page for a few giggles please send them through to me.

We're Getting Closer!
Hopefully we will all be back playing Touch very soon!
Until we are given the OK to restart our competitions from Qld Touch, TFA and the Qld Government we need to make sure all users of our fields adhere to the the Qld Roadmap for Easing COVID-19 Restrictions guidelines:
As of Saturday, 16 May, the State Government permits the following:
- Gatherings for up to 10 people are permitted for outdoor, non-contact activity only.
- The limit of up to 10 people includes players, coaches and volunteers.
- Social distancing of 1.5m and adequate spacing of not more than 1 person per 4m2 must apply.
- Health and hygiene practices must be adhered.
- Please don't use F1 & F3 (front fields)

Again Thank You to all our members and their families for their patience and resilience during these unprecedented times. We hope you are all staying healthy and well.
TFA had released a statement that all competitions would remain suspended until 1st June 2020 which we shared via Facebook (see link below).
We will definitely keep up-to-date with any changes announced by the Government and TFA and have our fingers crossed that we can safely come back sooner rather than later.
We would love to have you send through some photo's of yourselves "Staying In Touch" at home or doing drills to "Stay in Touch".
Stay Safe, Stay Strong, Be Kind
See you all soon!!
