OVERVIEW

Welcome to the 2022 Shellharbour Oztag Summer Season.

Shellharbour games for the Junior competition will be played on Thursday afternoons at Myimbarr & Flinders Oval and at this stage is summer only. This season runs from 13th October through to late February, depending on washed out rounds. Games are not played through the Christmas School Holidays.

We are offering 6’s, 8’s, 10’s, 12’s, 14’s, 16’s in Boys, Girls and Mixed. Some ages and divisions may not be offered as it depends on team nominations.

Age divisions are based off the age the child is turning this year, e.g. a child turning 11 or 12 in 2022 will play in the 12s.
