Secondary Schools Cup is back!

by admin

Bowls Queensland announced the Secondary Schools Cup will be returning and open to secondary school students under the age of 19. (Pictured left: 2015 Winners Helensvale State High’s Shane White and Tahlia Camilleri.)
Schools will get a chance to see who is top dog on the green this year with the reintroduction of the Secondary Schools Cup Competition which should provide some friendly inter-school rivalries.

BQ has restarted the programme with the hopes of enticing more players into the sport, teams will consist of Pairs (2 girls, 2 boys, or a mixed team) who have not turned 19 on or before December 31, 2017, and must feature at least one non-affiliated player.

Secondary Schools and Bowls Clubs are encouraged to align together to host an intra-school playoff (to be completed by 16th June) who will then proceed to an inter-school Bowls District Playoff (to be completed by 28th July).

The competition will be played across QLD with winners advancing through their local Districts to a State Final at Club Pine Rivers September 16-17.

It is recommended for clubs/schools to organise a coaching program for the students prior to the competition, followed by the number of weeks needed to conduct the competition to gain a club/school representative team.

Bowls Australia will also be providing BQ Regional Bowls Managers (RBMs) to assist clubs and schools with coordinating their local and District play off.
