Tag Shorts
Players can only play in NZTFI regulation tag football shorts. You can order new shorts through myself by emailing back to me your team sheet with the short sizes indicated in the column provided to families@youthquest.co.nz Or you can pay me direct at the tournament. Once you have ordered them, you are liable for them. The earlier you get the shorts order in the earlier your team will receive them.

Adult's Shorts $30

Childrens Shorts $15

Team Shirts
You can order SAS team shirts with your choice of colour schemes in either singlet or t shirt in dri fit fabric. T Shirts will be $15 for a fully numbered top. Your teams name will be extra if you choose to print your name or logo on the t shirt.


Referees
As we all know refereeing is a thankless job that we all take for granted. It’s a tough job that requires the referee to be impartial and make their calls ‘as they see it’. So come on people, lets give the referee’s a fair shake this season. Remember these people are volunteers who give their time willingly, and are only human, so they may make some mistakes, without them there would not be a game. PLEASE RESPECT THE REFEREES DECISIONS AT ALL TIMES.

IT IS COMPULSORY YOUR TEAM HAS A NOMINATED REFEREE AVAILABLE JUST IN CASE THERE IS A SHORTAGE OF REFEREES.

Uniforms
Please ensure that your team are all wearing matching playing tops primarily to allow our referees to easily distinguish attacking players from defenders and in turn make their job easier.
ALL TEAMS MUST BE IN UNIFORM BY ROUND 3.

Failure to get your teams uniforms will result in loss of points.

Tournament Rules
• PLEASE READ THE NZTFI CODES OF CONDUCT AS THIS WILL APPLY TO THE TOURNAMENT THIS YEAR.
