2020 State Team Trials and call for Selectors

The trials for the 2020 State Teams will take place at the following locations and times:

Sunday 5 May – Werribee

  • 9:00am to 12:00 noon – U14 and U18 trials (both girls and boys)
  • 12:00 noon to 3:00pm – U16 and Open trials (both girls and boys)

Saturday 11 May – Waverley

  • 9:00am to 12:00 noon – U14 and U18 trials (both girls and boys)
  • 12:00 noon to 3:00pm – U16 and Open trials (both girls and boys)

The trials have been scheduled earlier this year to allow athletes to trial whilst they are still in form following the end of the season. The teams will have the opportunity post trials to go to squads before the teams are finalised by early June. Athletes should make sure they arrive well in advance of the starting time to ensure that they are suitably prepared and ready to go

It is planned that once the teams have been selected in early June the athletes will be given a break before the teams begin formally training.

Athletes eligible to attend the trials will be emailed this week inviting them to trial together with a link for them to accept the invitation.
