Touch Football is a user pays sport and international tours such as this do not come cheap for our athletes. The fee for this tour is $1,500 per person and this does not include the cost of travel for pre-selection camps and participation in required national and state selection events. With all these items considered on average it costs our players between $3,000-$5,000 to achieve their dreams and represent Australia.
