MISSED SOMETHING LATELY? HERE’S THE LATEST NEWS

first_imgTFA are running an online survey on the NTL package that was shown on Fox Sports. If you would like to participate in the survey (and put yourself in the running for a new pair of ESUS shoes) just subscribe to the TFA email database on the front page of the website. Once you subscribe the survey will be sent out via email at the end of this week. Entries for the survey close on June 17. Well, if you’ve been trying to keep up with the TFA website over the past few days you’ll know it’s been flowing thick and fast with information.As editor of the website I’m having trouble finding both the time to write everything and the space to put it on the website…so I thought I’d save myself and everyone else a bit of time and hassle and summarise all the latest news into one story…sort of like a mini mid-week Sixty Seconds in Touch… This Friday is the dual launch of the Queensland 2006 Touch Football State of Origin Campaign and the new Sandstorm Beach Touch competition in Brisbane. Make sure you’re down at the QSAC Venue at 11:00am. The day will include a demo match with some of Queensland’s leading Origin players and also Natalie Cook, Australian Olympic Beach Volleyball Gold Medallist and Director of the Sandstorm venue and competition, as well as plenty of opportunities for the media to promote the event. The Australian Senior Squads have been announced on the TFA website. The final teams to attend the World Cup will not be decided until later this year. Players may be brought into the squads at any point. For more info call 1800 654 951 and speak to Maree Curran. The online shop was recently opened (and then closed again as we try to work through several teething problems with the new system) but already orders have been starting to come through. The new set up is pretty simple; you hit ‘TFA Merchandise’ on the left hand side of the web page and then browse through the different categories and different items. If the shop is still closed when you want to place an order, just ring 1800 654 951 and place your order online with Rachel Grant.center_img The Australian Open squads have also recently been announced and we will be updating the team lists and profiles on the TFA website soon. NTL DVD’s are selling fast, for just $20 you can purchase the package that aired on Fox Sports. Many coaches, referees and players are also purchasing the second DVD, which contains all of the raw footage and also the referee’s commentary of the Open finals for just $30. This DVD is a great resource, while the Fox package is a great promotion of the sport and very well produced. To order your copies phone 1800 654 951 and speak to Rachel Grant or visit the TFA online shop. That’s it for now, make sure you keep an eye on the TFA website daily, as the information and news is going to keep coming quick and fast! ESUS Footwear (TFA’s new sponsor), are getting ready to sell their new range of Touch Shoes both online and also at upcoming events. ESUS representatives will be heading to the Queensland Junior State Cup, State of Origin and National Under 18 Championships, as well as selling their shoes through the TFA online shop and also retail outlets.last_img
