It is our great pleasure to invite you to register your full details with the College for the upcoming FOBISIA/Straits Touch Tournament 2024.

Lunch is included for players and coaches. Each player will receive a tournament T-shirt. Please ensure that you record the required number of T-shirts and sizes during registration to avoid disappointment at the event.

The girls U14, U16 and U18, and the boys Open tournaments will be held across 4 main pitches which will be marked with 8 individual touch pitches.
