DISTRICT AND REGIONAL SPORTS REPRESENTATION

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. In Term 1 and Term 2, 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 gain selection 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 2017, Coorparoo had many students representing Lytton and Met East and one of our students (Remy D) even made a State team!

Students born in 2008, 2007 and 2006 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 due to illness on the day of in-school trials/or are currently injured, they must bring a note to Miss Carpenter or Mrs Godson in order to be considered. An email can also be sent to (Megan-mcarp16@eq.edu.au or Kim-kgods5@eq.edu.au) on the morning of the trial before 9am. Please ask for consideration BEFORE the trial has taken place.

Selection in Lytton teams is highly competitive, so there is an expectation that if students are attending 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. Sign-Up sheets for each respective sport can be found at the PE Office the week before the trial.

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

Coorparoo State School prides itself on its commitment to school sport. Students have a choice of a number of spo

rts throughout the school year. The school currently boasts National, Queensland, Regional and district school team representatives in a variety of sports.
