      ​​​​​​​Level 3 & 4

      If we are in Level 3 & 4 during Touch season, the Club Board will make a fair decision as needed, in regards to teams and playing.

      Scoring

      • Win = 3 points
      • Draw = 2 points
      • Loss = 1 point
      • Forfeit = 0 points

      Game Forfeiting

      • If you cannot attend your game on Wednesday, you must inform Touch Management via email (clubmanager@mountsports.co.nz) prior to 5pm the Tuesday before your Wednesday game.
      • Failure to do so, will result in a first and final warning. As well as a points reduction of -3 on the table. Teams that fail to let management know they are not attending their game for a second time, will be removed from the competition, with no refund given. This rule covers both halves of the season.
      • If your team turns up with the wrong numbers, you can still play but the other team will win by default.

      Referees

      • Suitable Referees will be provided.
      • On occasions, teams may be asked to help out with refereeing games including their own (only if it is necessary), but they will be reimbursed for this.
      • See the TOUCH RULES tab for full details on Module Rules.
      • Any sort of Referee abuse, will not be tolerated. Offending person(s) or teams will be withdrawn from the competition with no refund.

      Finals Night

      • There will be no prizes paid out in cash - all teams will receive equal prizes on finals night (held over to the next round, if in Covid Level 2 or above). 
      • The finals night party is subject to being in Covid Level 1.
      • The finals night games are played as per the leaderboard in each section (Competitive and Social) i.e. 1 vs 2, 3 vs 4, 5 vs 6. Teams will play at their allocated time and not their requested time. This option was voted by the teams in 2021.
      • There's 2 halfs in each season (pre-christmas and post-christmas). The points restart each half of the season.

      Cancellation Policy

      • Unless there is a Severe Weather warning for the day or the fields are closed by the Council, we do not cancel. If we do cancel, you will be informed by email to your chosen Team Manager. If you do not get an email, Touch will still be on.
