What is Oztag?
Oztag is the latest craze in recreational sport that now has competitions running all over Australia.
It is a non-tackling game. Normal dimensions of the field are 70 metres x 50 metres. Eight players
in each team are on the field at any one time. Players wear shorts with a Velcro patch on each
side. A strip of cloth is attached to the Velcro, known as a tag. The object of the game is to score
tries. Defenders prevent this by tagging the ball carrier, removing the tag from the shorts.
A round robin competition will be held in both men’s and mixed divisions with a minimum of 4 games. Games will be 20 minutes in length. We will also have a Dash for Cash Relay race.
What the day involves:
Free jumping castle to keep the kids occupied
A team will consist of a max of 10 players. For mixed teams this will consist of a min. of 4 women.
