At Coorparoo, we offer our students every opportunity possible to take the ‘next step’ in terms of District and Regional representation. Coorparoo is one of 30+ schools that make up the Lytton District. This term we will hold in-school trials to identify students to send to Lytton Trials. If students are successful in gaining selection in a Lytton team, they will then compete to make it into our Regional side (Met East). Selection in a Met East side will mean students have the opportunity to compete in State Championships and potentially make a State team. In 2016, Coorparoo had many students representing Lytton and Met East and one of our students even made a State team!

Students born in 2007, 2006 and 2005 are eligible to attend in-school trials. It is highly important that students attend in-school trials on the dates and times specified in newsletters. If students are absent or unable to trial due to illness or injury, please email Miss Carpenter ( BEFORE the trial, so we are aware that we have students not trialling who need to be considered. Selection in Lytton teams is highly competitive, so there is an expectation that if students are coming to an in-school trial, they have had/are having experience playing the sport they are trialling for. Most Lytton trials are for U12 teams (Netball and Rugby League are the exception as there are U11 and U12 teams selected). Whilst 10 year students are invited to attend trials, they need to be aware that we will not send them to a Lytton trial if we do not deem they would be safe and/or competitive against older students.

The following in-school trials will occur in Term 1 and Term 2.

*Please sign up at the HPE Office before attending a trial, so we have an idea of numbers. Sign Up sheets will be up a week before the trial date
