Development NTS

Development
The Development National Touch Series is the perfect tournament for clubs, teams and players to experience national competition throughout the season.
  • Three single-day tournaments, with final rankings based on league points earned in the tournaments
  • Open to any club and team which is affiliated to England Touch
  • Limited numbers of elite players per team. Elite players are asked to coach and/or referee
  • Clubs only entering a single team are still expected to provide a referee, but are not required to. Clubs entering multiple teams will have to provide a referee for each team they enter beyond their first. Player referee allocations will be done for a whole team to cover a game

All Rounds will be live streamed on YouTube.

As well as live streaming, the tournament fee covers venue and field hire, photography, medical provision, referees, PA and marquee hire, equipment and other expenses.
