first_imgWith 120 Junior Touch teams set to descend on the Glasshouse Mountains in July for the Queensland Junior State Cup, the 7 teams from Chinchilla could easily be passed over. The incredible achievement of the junior players from Chinchilla is highlighted however, when you realize that these teams are coming from a small country community of just 3000 people. The Queensland Junior State Cup will be held from July 1-3, with around 1500 junior Touch Footballers set to take part from all around Queensland. In 2004 the Chinchilla Touch Association attended the Junior State Cup with just one team in the Under 13 girls division. In February 2005 Chinchilla Touch ran the AusTouch program, a junior Touch program designed to increase the skill level of its current juniors and attract more children to the sport of Touch. Judging by the number of teams attending this junior state event, it certainly worked with 117 children taking part in the program from Chinchilla and surrounding areas, with 70 of those players being selected into Chinchilla representative teams. The association president, Brenda Rackemann, was overwhelmed by the response to not only the AusTouch program, but also the number of children who wanted to go further by attending tournaments such as the Queensland Junior State Cup. “This is great for the community not just the children but also the number of parents who are helping out with the sides as coaches, managers or mums who are going along just to help look after the kids. This will be a welcome distraction from the drought for a lot of the parents who are on the land,” she said. “The only downside to having so many children wanting to participate at this event is that the association only has 4 sets of uniforms so we will borrow some from the school or local clubs or wherever possible. We may also struggle to supply our quota of referees as the people who referee in the local competition are also coaching teams at the event. If these are the only dramas we have to deal with to have more kids being involved in Touch then I don’t mind.” By Rachel Moyle & Terry McSweeney A MESSAGE FROM TERRY McSWEENEY- SOUTH WEST QUEENSLAND TOUCH ASSOCIATION: The Chinchilla Touch Association is sending 7 Junior teams to the upcoming Junior State Cup (JSC) as a result of the interest shown from the AusTouch program run earlier in the year. This is great for their association in having so many kids wanting to play Touch. One problem! Since they have so many teams from such a small association they also need coaches and managers. The coaches and managers usually referee in the local competition. As part of the nomination for JSC they are required to supply 4 referees from their association but are finding it difficult as most of the accredited refs are coaching and are required to look after the kids. This would make it very difficult not only for them to referee by also for the Tournament Director of Referees to juggle the roster to accommodate them. If your referees association or individuals could help Chinchilla out by supplying some refs it would be much appreciated. SWQ Touch will cover the cost of their accommodation and breakfast at the same venue as the Toowoomba Junior teams are staying in Caloundra. However we would need to know ASAP as limited accommodation is available. The tournament is at the Glasshouse Mountains from the 1st to the 3rd of July. If you can help just reply to this email address or call SWQ Touch on 46311464 or 040713070. Regards, Terry McSweeney SWQ Touch Associationlast_img read more
