The Great Roadmap: Returning to competition in July

Roadmap Kickit Touch Football

The impact COVID-19 has been felt right across the nation and none more so than the sporting industry.

With many sporting groups shutting their doors from the start of March, the sector has laid dormant for more than two months, KickIt Touch Football included.

A monumental 8.4 million adults and 3 million kids who play or enjoy the associated benefits of health and well being have been impacted.

Friday, May 8th the Queensland Government detailed a roadmap to easing restrictions across the state with sport and community groups included.

Under the proposed roadmap, some community sport would resume from June 12th with contact sports from July 10th, provided active cases and community spread remains low-to-nil.

This could see Kickit resume its competitions following the implementation of stage three easing of restrictions.

In other words, we could kick-off at Taringa and Stafford as early as July 15th and 16th respectively.

Studies suggest that the risks involved in outdoor sport are incredibly low compared to other means of life.

With the safety of all Kickit players and staff in mind, there will be a host of education or practical measures to ensure that the risks involved with (contact) sport remain as low as possible.


Roadmap to a new standard

Our number one priority is ensuring the health and well being of our players and staff.

The landscape of Kickit is set to change with a host of new procedures to ensure proper hygiene and social distancing.

Under guidance from the Australian Institute of Sport, a number of measures outlined below will become the new standard at all Kickit Touch Football venues and events.
Measures & Strategy

The players:

– Contact tracing of all players at Kickit (sign on arriving at venue, sign out leaving venue).

– Players are encouraged to be prepared before they arrive at the venue to limit use of change rooms (when applicable).

– Players must maintain social distancing (1.5m) when not playing.

– A hand sanitise station will be readily available under the Kickit marquee at all venues.

– Players must wash hands before and after games at the hand sanitiser station or in the toilet/change room facilities.

– Parents or other spectators may attend games however will be limited to one per person/per family and must maintain social distancing from all players at the venue.

The Staff:

– Educational signage will be clearly visible at all venues where necessary.

– All of the above measures will be enforced and controlled by all staff members.

Roadmap: Get back to social sport!

Calling out to all past Kickit teams!

Numerous Rugby League competitions may of been cancelled, but that isn’t the end for 2020.

Play the closest social Touch Football to Rugby League and fall in love with Kickit.

Show your support and register a team – get back to touch football, get back to community sport!


We understand that everyone is doing it tough and will continue to slug it out long after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

This is why we will be putting a freeze on season fees over the winter and spring months.

Is cash an issue?
Don’t give up playing, just give up some of your time.

Be the ref | Roadmap to kick-off | Kickit Touch Football

Roadmap: Become a referee today!

We’ll be rolling out a referee incentive scheme aimed to help players work off their player fees over the course of the season.

Players may opt to just run the sideline or become an on-field referee with even more benefits.

Best of all, each and every referee gets paid for the games they ref.

Just keen for some fitness? We welcome any new referee or current player who would like to challenge themselves with the whistle in hand. Visit our referee sign-on.


We’re all in this together

You’ve heard the words ‘we’re all in this together’ echoed across screens for the last two months and perhaps it is most true right now.

As restrictions start to ease and the lives of many start to move forward, now more than ever we need maintain diligence and common sense when it comes to the health and safety of others.

The Queensland Government’s roadmap provides sensible and gradual steps to a COVID recovery that will reconnect our community but only if we do the right thing.

To fail here, we will regress on the easing of restrictions and stage 3 will be postponed.

While many things may happen between now and July 10th, we’re excited for what the future holds.

We hope you join us on the field when we return.

Beer Pressure, Mother Ruckers become Carseldine champions!

Kick It Stafford, Carseldine. Brisbane. Monday. Wednesday.

Mother Ruckers have emphatically defeated reigning mixed champions Nek Set 10-4 in the division 1 final.

A five-try effort from LIVIN top try scorer Nick Gilliland helped Mother Ruckers to their fifth mixed title in eight seasons.

In wet conditions, Nick Gilliland would put his side on the board first with a short kick to score. The reply was swift from Range Brewing try assist champion Shaun Rees, who scored on the ensuring set.

The teams wrestled possession and points with North Brisbane Rep stars Stephen Gill and Josh Pilks crossing for their respective teams as the rain eased.

Five unanswered tries to Nick (3), Stephen and Matt Grieves blew the lead out to 7-2 before a characteristic line break by Shaun Rees who combined with New South Wales representative Chloe Storm closed the gap to 3 points moments before halftime.

Field possession was key to start the second half with Nek Set repelling a hot Mother Ruckers side in the opening exchanges. A string of crucial turnovers stalled any momentum from the reigning champions and the Mother Ruckers made them pay with quick tries to Will Weir and Nick Gilliland.

A late try in the left-hand corner to Keegan Peele iced the game with minutes remaining.

Congratulations to Mother Ruckers on winning the Mixed Division 1 title.

Mother Ruckers: Nick Gilliland (5), Stephen Gill (2), Matt Grieves, Will Weir, Keegan Peele.

Player of the Match: Stephen Gill.

Beer Pressure has secured their maiden mens grand final victory after defeating long-time rivals P-Dub 4-3 in extra time on Wednesday night.

Player of the match Stu Lester sealed the win with a crafty kick and score in the 7th minute of golden point.

In wet conditions, Lachlan O’Keefe sent the game to over time with 5 minutes remaining after scooping up a Will O’Keefe kick that left multiple P-Dub defenders grasping at thin air.

P-Dub headed into the break with a 3-2 lead after Jack Woodbridge scooted 50m to score to end the first half.

The teams traded blows with Stu Lester levelling up the scores after splitting the middle of P-Dub’s defence.

Jack Woodbridge gave his side their first lead of the match after clutching onto a short grubber from broken play.

Beer Pressure’s Zac Stanton opened the scoring after latching onto a short grubber before Sam Collins collected a lovely inside ball from P-Dub captain Joe Warren to score.

Congratulations to Beer Pressure on defeating P-Dub 4-3.

P-Dub: Jack Woodbridge (2), Sam Collins
Player of the match: Stu Lester.
Best and fairest: Jack Woodbridge.



Balls Deep claimed the mixed division 2 title after defeating Scrambled Legs 4-2 in the extra time.

A try to Luna Pranjivan in the opening possession of golden point set up an unlikely victory.

The undefeated Scrambled Legs came into the match as hot favourites after disposing of Balls Deep in the first week of trials and during the fixture rounds.

Player of the match Jackson Kaiser put his side on the board first with a grubber and score from five metres out.

Scrambled Legs top try scorer Sam Pang replied with a long-range try of his own to level the scores at halftime.

A second half stalemate saw some end-to-end footy featuring a heavy dose of rucking and kicking.

Matt crossed first for Balls Deep before Sam Pang crossed for his second once again tie the scores up and send the match to golden point.

Balls Deep only needed one possession to grab the lead in extra time with Scrambled Legs unable to score on the ensuring set.

Balls Deep: Jackson Kaiser, Matt, Luna Pranjivan.
