NSW Associations Prepare to Return to Tag

NSW citizens will soon be able to take the Oztag field as the state-wide return to community sport approaches.

The Government announced that community sport will return when the state reaches 80% double vaccinations in the community of 16 years of age and above (mid to late October).

Protocol states that the return to play is only for double vaxxed individuals (excluding Under 16’s) until December 1, 2021. This includes parents and spectators attending.

However, as of December 1, all can participate and attend.

NSW Oztag are excited to welcome back local competitions and look forward to seeing the community back enjoying our great game.

Associations are currently gearing up to kick off their Junior and Senior Summer 21/22 seasons, which are set to commence between mid-October and the start of December.
