Indoor Girls Tag-Touch is an opportunity for girls wish to play Touch in a modified indoor format. It is a game of touch played on a netball/basketball court with four student’s per side. It is to provide players with the confidence to play with an oval ball with their peers in a smaller, modified format, with more touches of the ball, more involvement, and more tries. Players wear a belt with two tags on their hips. All; the same, rules apply as per a game of touch, except instead of a touch being made on the player in possession, the defender must rip off one of the attacking player’s tags. The attacking player needs to plant the ball and step over it where the tag is made.

All games are to be played with four players per side on the court at one time, Teams can have 5 or 6 players to have a couple of rolling subs if they like. There will be 2 x 13 minute halves with 2 minutes for half time.
