The Coolum Touch Association has been an interactive part of the Coolum Community for twenty-one years. In that time, people of all ages, from all walks of life and backgrounds, and at varying levels of fitness, have enjoyed the physical activity, health, and camaraderie that this great team sport offers.
The club runs men’s, women’s, mixed, over 30’s and junior competitions with an active membership of over 350 men, women and children.
A huge success story, from its inception in Queensland in 1979, Touch has rapidly developed into the perfect combination of social compatibility and competitive opportunity. It is one of the most successful, independent sports in Australia with growth in participation and spectator interest and awareness.
Touch continues to grow in all demographics. With nearly one million players Australia-wide and a healthy growth rate, Touch is expected to be the largest mixed-gender sport in the country by the year 2005. It is already the largest secondary school participant sport in Queensland with an estimated 100,000 students participating. Touch is a minimal contact sport and as such, is ideal for people of all ages - from primary school children to players over 50.
Professional sports persons play it, children thrive on it, singles enjoy the social aspects of it, sponsors enjoy the “team spirit” of it, and families love the togetherness of it.
Touch is truly a community sport, embracing male, female and competition teams. It is one of a select few sports that has been able to successfully combine male and female players in a mixed category that is highly enjoyable, skilful and exciting.
Touch is definitely one of the cheapest sports around. Other than a pair of shoes and a set of clothes no special equipment is required to be able to play at a social level. And the sport is largely volunteer based. Touch also offers a very cheap yet comprehensive level of insurance for players, officials, volunteers and administrators.
