Play starts with a TAP at dead center field. Defense back 10M. TAGS can be made with as little as one finger anywhere on the ball carrier including the ball or the carriers clothing. A TAG creates a MARK on the field. The ball carrier must perform a ROLL BALL on the MARK, failure to do so is a turnover. The defense must retreat 5M from the MARK before attacking the ball. The DUMMY HALF must play the ball from the MARK with no delay on a tag. If the DUMMY HALF is tagged possession is turned over. Your team turns the ball over on the 6th TAG. ROUGH TAGS are a penalty. Penalties are started with a TAP, defense back 10M. If you are tagged and then pass the ball it is called a TOUCH PASS and your team turns over possession of the ball. You cannot smack the ball out of the carrier’s hands. ________________________________________________________________ [important] Games will have a referee/coach to help players get a good grasp of the rules and understand the game of Touch Rugby. We will run 2 games if required and skill levels can be split depending on attendance.  [/important] See you at Lake Trail!...
