THE COOK ISLAND Touch Association will hold two more muster competitions next week before kicking off their 2017 season.

 

On Wednesday, the association held friendly games between the potential players that would take part in this year’s competition at Nikao Field.

Association president Daphne Brown was pleased with the turnout and hopes for a better attendance in next week’s musters. “Eight games were played, giving the teams that turned up a chance to have a run and practice,” Brown said.

“From Wednesday night’s games, teams are still getting sorted. There are teams still looking for players and players looking for teams to get into.”

The second muster session will be held on Monday followed by the final one on Wednesday, starting at 5pm, before the Bluesky Touch Season Competition begins proper from Monday, January 23.

“The muster gives teams a chance to get sorted and to have a run at the same time. It is also a good chance to pick up players looking to get into a team.”

There are spaces available for the open men’s and women’s, open and social mixed, masters and junior grades. 

The mixed competition has two grades – open and social mixed.   Brown said the social mixed grade was for those teams looking to have fun and get some exercise.

“It is enjoyed by family and corporate teams for team bonding activity,” she added.

Brown said all teams and players, including those still getting organised, were welcome to take part in their muster competitions. “Touch referees and those wanting to join the referees are also invited to come to the muster games.”
