With the 2004 National Touch League just 7 weeks away, organisation and preparation is in full swing!
Coffs Harbour International Sports Stadium and the Coffs Harbour community will again play host to thousands of players, spectators, officials and referees who will descend on the area for up to two weeks.
With a nomination increase of four teams, bringing the total to 122 teams nominated, organisers certainly have their hands full.
ATA has received 55 team nominations for the Open divisions and 67 in the Seniors divisions.
Tournament Director Jon Pratt is expecting an exciting week.
"With all of last years winning teams returning again this year, the competition should be incredibly tough. Once again, the venue will no doubt be in excellent condition, especially after recent rains have helped with the quality of the playing surface."
Competition in the Open divisions commences at 9am on Saturday 13th, with semi finals and finals being played on Tuesday 16th.
The Senior divisions will then commence at 9am on Thursday 18th with semi finals and finals being played on Sunday 21st.
