In 1978 a band of passionate volunteers came together and created the foundations of Redlands Touch Association. From those early days our Cleveland fields have transformed to become an outstanding touch football facility.
Today Redlands Touch remains a volunteer led association, having grown from a handful of senior teams that played the initial season in 1978 into a thriving community, providing a great place to play touch football for all age groups. More than 3000 seniors and juniors play touch footy throughout the year at Redlands.
The youngest players begin in our Mini Muddies program at just five years of age. The oldest of our players are still running around in the over sixties competition. Our Club caters for male and female players of all skill levels.
In addition to our grassroots social touch competition, Redlands Touch Association has a proud history of high representation in the game. Redlands’ teams have always performed well on the regional and state stages. Since its inception, Redlands Touch has produced an impressive 49 Australian representative players and 11 Australian level referees.
Each year Redlands Touch Association hosts two major junior carnivals that draw participants from across our state, the Arthur Davis Cup and the Queensland Primary All Schools Touch Championships, both with over 140 teams competing.
In addition to fine quality players, Redlands Touch is very fortunate to have a team of extremely talented referees. They regularly provide support to the various representative carnivals held across South East Queensland while also often being called upon to officiate at state and national level competitions. Our referees are professional and highly respected for their capacity to run a great game of touch football.
Our Australian Touch Football affiliate region is the South Queensland Sharks. Redlands Touch Association’s catchment stretches from Redland Bay, Carbrook, Victoria Point and Mount Cotton in the south through to Wynnum, Manly, Capalaba and Wellington Point in the north, although we welcome players from all areas of Brisbane and Redlands that love touch footy.
