Touch North Harbour is the non-profit provincial body responsible for the organisation, development and promotion of Touch in North Harbour. Touch North Harbour is a member of Touch New Zealand, the national not-for-profit body responsible for the organisation, development and promotion of Touch throughout NZ. We both work closely together to strive for:
As your Provincial Association we are here for 2 main purposes
1. To support you with your module(s) to enable you to provide a quality Touch competition
2. To provide a pathway to representative teams
Below is the Affiliation process and the benefits we can provide to you. We are constantly reviewing what and how we support you, to provide you with better service and benefits. If you have any questions or suggestions please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 094480304
Each year we require you to register each module you are running with both us at the Provincial Association level, and Touch NZ (TNZ). This can now be done by filling out just one form. Please click here to complete.
You will only need to do this once this upcoming season. Next year we will send you a link to your information from this year where you will only need to note any modifications or changes from the last season. No more re-filling out the same information.
Module Box Order – As part of the affiliation benefits you will receive a Module Box per registered module to provide you with some equipment to help you run your module (see below for full details). This will sent out after 25th September 2023 and after we have accepted your affiliation registration.
Payment – you will receive an invoice from Touch NZ once you have confirmed the number of team and players at each module for the year. This will need to be paid by Monday 6th November 2023.

This is a living resource that will be updated over time and we would value your feedback on anything you would like to see in there that you feel would help you and others with running your modules.
