And

  • Aged between 12 (born 2010) and 17 (2005)   

If so you may have met the selection criteria to compete in this years North Queensland Team. 

HOW IT WORKS 

The North Queensland Team, competing at the 2022 Australian All Schools Championships, will be selected from the performances of the North Queensland Track and Field Championship, held September 23rd – 25th 2022. Selection will come from;

  • U14 (2010,2009) – Top 2 performances from a North Queenslander
  • U15 (2008) – Top 2 performances from a North Queenslander
  • U16 (2007) -Top 2 performances from a North Queenslander
  • U17 (2006) – Top 2 performances from a North Queenslander
  • U18 (2005- Top 2 performances from a North Queenslander

Para events will be held at this Championship and selection will come from;

  • U15 (2008, 2009, 2010) – Top 2 performances from a North Queenslander
  • U17 (2006, 2007) – Top 2 performances from a North Queenslander
  • U20 (Must not have turned 20 on or before  December 31, 2022).

This new pathway gives extra opportunities to athletes from North Queensland by offering a chance to compete at the North Queensland Championships and then move directly onto the Australian  All Schools  Championships, without having to compete at the Queensland Schools 13-19yr Track and Field Championships (existing pathway).

Those athletes wishing to compete for the Queensland team can still do so, with the normal selection process remaining, that is, athletes will compete at the QLD School State 13-19 year Championships and be chosen for the Queensland Team based on results.  Please click on the link for more information about the Queensland Team.  https://www.qldathletics.org.au/articlebypage/?aId=athletes&Id=89.        North Queenslanders can choose what team they would like to be a part of and are not obligated to compete in the North Queensland Team if they wish to compete for Queensland. 

Having this option to compete in either team does not take away the importance and prestige of representing their state at the Championships, but offers more options for those wishing to compete at this Championship, especially to those from regional and remote areas who can’t travel to Brisbane each year. This will also be an opportunity to showcase a North Queensland Team to the rest of Australia.
