Notes for Captains

All teams must have completed in full the online registration process. All information must be true and correct.

When you stay in a cabin at Shikoku Saburo no Sato, if your team has more than 7 participants, you have to book another accommodation, which means staying in the tents. Under the Fire Law in Japan a cabin can hold up to 7 people. Whether you actually use tents or not, please book accommodations suitable for the number of people in your team.
It is the responsibility of the team manager to ensure all information is true and correct.

Teams may bring their own tents, but in this case will have to pay for the tent site anyway. If your team isn’t prepared to sleep in tents at all, and if you are prepared to be based some distance from the venue (and therefore have to drive home after the party), there are other bungalow sites within 20 minutes drive of Shikoku Saburo no Sato that can possibly be booked. If you want to do either of these things, get in touch with the Tournament Committee. Of course, for convenience, we recommend staying at the main venue.

All persons accept that by participating in this event, they may be photographed/filmed, and that these images may be used by Tokushima touch association and Tokushima AJET for promotion of the sport and event.

Each team that has over seven players must supply a referee. We are working to get dedicated referees for the tournament, in which event team referees will be asked to act as line judges to assist the main umpire. However, in the likely event that we are unable to find enough dedicated referees, teams will be asked to provide persons who know the rules and are able to control a game. Obviously, there will be variation in the standard of refereeing, but we ask all captains to impress upon their teams the importance of demonstrating good grace and sportsmanship towards referees and everyone involved in the tournament at all times. Referee assignments for Saturday will be decided in advance (when the competition format is completed.)

Teams should look like a team on the field, for ease of play. Team uniforms (tops) must be of uniform color and style. Starting this year, all teams will be required to have individual numbers on the backs of their jerseys. This is to assist referees in distinguishing players and making calls. Although jerseys with printed numbers look best, we realize that many teams already have jerseys without numbers printed, and it can be a significant expense to get new ones made. In recognition of that fact, the numbers can be drawn on with marker, taped on, printed on paper and pinned on, etc., as long as they are appropriately sized and legible.

Captains are also reminded that suitable footwear must be worn. Regulation Touch shoes are recommended. Bare feet, spikes, rugby boots (with removable sprigs), and molded boots with metal tipped cleats are NOT allowed.

We will have some limited first aid available, but all players are ultimately responsible for their own wellbeing. This tournament does not take out insurance for injury. Participating teams must provide their own insurance if needed. Please bring your own tents/marquees to the rugby fields if you want to rest in the shade during the tournament. Buburu Park does not have such equipment. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The deadline for payment of tournament fees is Friday May 10th. Please don’t be late! If you are late in making a complete payment, we may have to cancel your accommodation bookings and/or refuse your entry. We’d hate to have to do that!

More information will be sent to registered teams through email, but if you have any questions please contact us at touchrugby.ajet.net.
