Illawarra first responder families, come along, join in and have some fun playing Oztag this winter. The Fortem OzTag team will be a mixed senior team playing in the Senior Winter OzTag competition. No experience needed, only attendance and your competitive spirit! Team sport is a great way to socially connect with your peers on a regular basis outside of work, it has physical benefits and is proven to be de-stressor. The social aspect that comes with being part of a team is fantastic for your well-being. Even if you join our team not knowing a soul, sport has a funny way of fast-tracking friendships.
We need between 12 – 16 players to register for the 8 a side competition, to allow for people who do shift work and may be unable to make a game. Please register your interest with Fortem (using form below) by 11 March 2021, so we can arrange timely registration with the local OzTag organisation. The competition will commence on April 8, 2021.
The competition is played on Thursday nights. Games are played over 40 minutes, with two twenty minute halves. Game start times are within the 6.00pm to 8.15pm time period. The season runs for 12 weeks with a 2 week final series plus an allowance for 2 washed rounds to be replayed, will possibly go until early to late July.
Players must be 15 to register in the senior competition. If they turn 15 during the season, they may register BUT not play until they are actually 15. This is an insurance requirement and is a directive of Australian Oztag.
