For many Affiliates the Winter break or season is coming to an end and the major Touch Football season is just around the corner.
Here at NSW Touch Football we certainly appreciate how busy all our dedicated volunteers and administrators are about to become. With that in mind we wanted to ensure that all of them are armed with the best information, knowledge and strategy for the seasons ahead by attending as a delegate at the annual State Conference on October 14th-15th at Bankstown.
It’s a great weekend and highly valuable to all Associations that attend!
