IMPORTANT NOTE:

We do not 'manage' Teams.  We rely on players to form and manage their own teams. As such, Adults are asked NOT TO register as 'Individuals' for the Competition unless they are already part of team. You can email us to let us know you are looking to join a team and we will informally try to connect you to teams looking for additional players. Please note, it is rare for Teams to be looking for additional players. For more information, please see below: How It Works.

Primary School aged Children however, can join The Magic Academy where will help them to connect to other players looking for a team and learn skills if they are a beginner. Please see more information on The Magic Academy below.

 

General Information:

-All Games are played at the Katoomba Sports and Aquatic Centre

-We run three separate competitions all year round (during school terms only). 

 

- Primary School – Sat mornings 

- High School (up to U19s)  - Friday evenings 

- 19 years + (open) – Tuesday evening

 

The competition is split into two seasons – Summer and Winter

 

HOW IT WORKS:

We rely on members of the community to form and manage teams within the competition and as such, it is rare that we can place a lot of individuals seeking a team into these existing teams. 

If however, you have a child who hasn’t played before or doesn’t have a team, we have a program called The Magic Academy which will focus on skills and a social game.  The Program’s aim is to keep your child learning skills and playing the game until they are ready to join a team, or have connected with other players in the session to form a new team for the competition. You can join this program at any time. Please note, we will still be relying on parents to manage and coach teams, but are creating the opportunity to connect kids and teens to each other. 

 

THE MAGIC ACADEMY

A Skills and Social Game Session to help kids connect to other players looking for a team and help beginners get skills.

The  Magic Academy (Primary School Age) 

Start times (currently) are:  9:00-9:50 (Sat)
