Dear South Coast Parents and Athletes

Please find the below brief overview of The Representative School Sport Program for Term 3 and small parts of Term 4.

 

STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS

While it is Queensland School Sport's preference to proceed with scheduled representative sporting events to provide students with every opportunity to compete, current advice from Queensland Health has led to the decision to postpone 10-12yr Touch, Tennis and Softball events and review options to reschedule in Term 4.

Considering the impact of current restrictions to scheduled district and regional trials in a number of local government areas, the decision has been made to cancel the 13-19yr Softball, 13-15yr Basketball, 13-18yr Surfing and the 10-19yr Track and Field State Championships for 2021. In making this decision, Queensland School Sport have considered the impact to students, families and staff, and the uncertainty about what will happen moving forward.

In making these decisions, Queensland School Sport has further taken into consideration the following:

 

  • Current Queensland health advice (primary consideration)
  • A commitment to ensure equity across all representative school sports
  • Regional and school priorities for the remainder of year, particularly interruption free time
  • Exam and assessment priorities  
  • Operational logistics of rescheduling State Championship events and the stat​ewide implications
  • Seasonal clashes with other events (community and school) on the calendar

 

This decision ensures that we are providing schools, parents and students with timely advice about the postponement and cancellation.

We will continue to take advice from the Chief Health Officer and Queensland Health in making decisions regarding the health and safety of students and staff. For further information on current restrictions and the latest Queensland Government updates, visit www.covid19.qld.gov.au.   

 

Queensland School Sport understands that this decision may cause concern for students and families who had planned to attend this Championship, the decision was made considering student and staff health and safety as a priority.   Further information regarding refunds with be provided when possible.
