Games and Competition
1. No games are ever lost due to wet weather. Please note Kick It Touch Football will do everything it can to catch up games within a reasonable timeframe. This may result in teams requiring to play multiple games on any competition night to catch up lost matches due to wet weather. The end of the season and start of the next season may be pushed back due to wet weather.

In most cases the primary user will have control over the fields in the event of wet weather, damage to the field or if the venue becomes unusable. We will endeavour to take appropriate actions to ensue a competition is maintainable to completion.
3. Forfeits are never fun. If your opponent forfeits (providing there is adequate notice), the competition coordinator will aim to find an opponent for you to play at your scheduled game time. Should this be unattainable, we will look to provide you with a catch up game later in the season. Forfeits result in a 3-0 loss to the team who has forfeited. Unfortunately, no refunds can be given on season fees for matches that end in a forfeit.

Kick It Touch Football takes no responsibility for the harm, illness or damage these products may cause. Physiotherapists may be used at competitions and events.
