This communication is to inform all Touch Football Australia (TFA) members about the unaffiliated rule applying to participation in unaffiliated events.
TFA is the only recognised body by the Australian Sports Commission for the sport of Touch Football in Australia.
TFA and affiliated entities run the sport under quality standards, with trained and accredited officials, reaching the Australian Sport Commission requirements and providing quality experiences to participants in a safe and enjoyable environment.
TFA and affiliated entities also ensure insurance coverage for participants under the National Insurance Scheme. Importantly all funds contributed are reinvested in the ongoing improvement of your sport.
Events and competitions run by unaffiliated entities, or not complying with TFA Event Membership Affiliation Policy, do not reach TFA requirements and are described as unaffiliated. They are generally for profit or benefit other parties. TFA supports various charitable organisations through our current processes.
