Upon registering into a team for a competition, you must read the ‘conditions of play’ on the back of the ‘Team Registration Form’ before signing, to ensure you fully understand them.
At each game, you must sign on a ‘Team Sign on Sheet’ & notify your ‘Individual Registration Number’ to be insured.
The injured player must report any injury sustained whilst playing the game of Oztag to the Competition Convener game officials immediately.
