How are the Teams Selected? The trials are held over two dates and the players get opportunities to show their skills in some drills and some short timed games to multiple selectors. Each player will wear a numbered bib and their names will not be known to the selectors. The selectors will rate each player on a range of skills and attributes. These results will be tallied and the teams selected from there.
Do Players Have to Come On Both Trial Days? Players should attend both trial sessions as this will maximise their chance of performing well.
My Child Plays in a Club Team that's a Year Older Than Their Actual Age. Can They Do That In A North Zone Rep Team? No unfortunately they can't. Players need to play in the age group the same age as they turn this year. Players from U10 to Seniors are able to trial for a representative team
What Happens After the Trials? Teams are selected based on scores and successful players will be contacted directly. Names will be published on the North Zone website in early March. We will hold a Muster Day when the players meet their coach and kit sizes are chosen.
What Tournaments Do the Teams Play in? The main competition is the QCSA State Titles played over the Labour Day Long Weekend in May. U10 to U16 can also play at the Sunshine Coast Cup held on a Saturday in the July school holidays and U10 to U13 can play at the Scenic Rim Cup on a Saturday in the September school holidays
How Much Will It Cost? Prices for 2021 are still being finalised but basic kit and registration will cost around $165 for the State Titles (returning players will only need to purchase socks); and registration for each other tournament will be around $25. The players keep any kit purchased.
When Do the Teams Train? Training times will be advised by the coach at Muster Day. Every effort is made not to clash with club training times.
