Welcome to Edinburgh Touch

New Players Wanted for Primary School Girls Touch Tournament 20 June


Edinburgh Touch in association with Active Schools has launched new touch sessions for girls in P3-4 and P5-7.

Fridays 3-4pm at Broughton High School, 29 E Fettes Ave, EH4 1EG

2 May to 20 June 2014 
21 Aug - 10 Oct 2014

The sessions are coached by Iain Gray and will concentrate on keeping things fun whilst learning fundamental sports skills of teamwork, agility, speed and co-ordination - skills that are transferable to many other sports such as netball, basketball, rugby and football.  The rules of touch will be introduced so that players will be able to play small sided modified matches at the end of the 8 week block.

There will be a tournament on 20 June at 3pm where teams will compete against each other. Find out how to get involved, contact Lesley Wight on  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Capital Challenge 2014 Selection

This year Edinburgh Touch plan to only send one men’s and one women’s team to the National Championships on 4th October, these sides should represent the top 14 players in the region. If there is sufficient demand to send a second side/mixed side this will be considered closer to the date.

Selection for these sides will be based on performance during the three Capital Challenge games being played on: 25th June, 16th July and 27th August.

To be considered for the Capital Challenge you must play touch in Edinburgh.

Selection process for the Capital Challenge will be:

  • Stage 1: The three constituted clubs (Galaxy, Sixpack and Superhands) to put forward their top 6 men and 6 women, these players are all guaranteed selection. They should be ranked from best to worst in the opinion of the club coach, they will then be split into two pools and selectors will allocate them into teams

Selection criteria for representing Edinburgh Touch at the Nationals Champs are:

  • Play touch in Edinburgh
  • Preferably at least 2 games in the Capital Challenge 2014
  •  If you live outside Edinburgh, your region is not putting in a team
