    • As Oztag is a recreational sport we do not conduct trainings, although we do encourage teams to train to improve their skills should they find the time 

 

    • Easts Juniors is a recreational sport with the majority of teams formed through friendship groups. As such we have decided to implement a strict 4 REP PLAYER MAX rule, this will apply to any players who played in any first division team at the previous 2 State Cups, 2021 and 2022 (this includes players not just from Easts, we will work with neighbouring competitions to help enforce this rule as well). 
      • Division 2 players are encouraged to split up where possible. We will contact the team if there are any problems.
        • NOTE: We do not enforce this rule in an attempt to break up friends made through our representative teams, but rather to encourage our strongest talent to be spread across multiple teams. This will not only provide friendly competition between teams but allow our rep players to enjoy oztag with other friend groups whilst attracting new players to the sport! 

 

    • While not necessary, we encourage our teams to have someone on the sideline to help with fair substitutions and provide guidance where it is needed. 
    • Ages 6’s – 9’s are allowed a coach to follow the children on the field helping them to play the game and making sure all kids get an even go.
    • From 10’s onward the coach must stand on the sideline with the substitutes
