Zone Championships Carnivals for Juniors / Men / & Women
Following the positive feedback from the 2015 Zone Championship Carnivals conducted for Juniors, Men & Women, we have again this year decided to run these carnivals for the benefit of players and coaches alike.
The concept continues for these championships that arose due to the lack of quality games for those players in the above age groups who were not participants of the NPL Elite program for players throughout South West Queensland.

These championships will be held on the following dates:-
Sundays – 3 Rounds - 22nd May; 5th June; 19th June

Zone Championships – MEN & WOMEN
These Championships will be held on the weekend of Sat / Sun 11th & 12th June
All Clubs will be invited to enter a Men’s team to participate, and all Women’s teams are invited. To allow for maximum participation there will be NO Senior Clubs fixtures scheduled for this weekend.
Zone Championships – GIRLS
This event will be held on Sunday 12th June in conjunction with the final day of the Women’s Zone championships. This will allow for participation in Saturday fixtures. U14 & U16 Girls Teams invited to submit nominations for these age groups.
Zone Championships – COLTS
This event will be held on Sunday 12th June in conjunction with the final day of the Men’s Zone championships. This will allow for participation in Friday night / Sat fixtures. Colts (U16-18) Teams are invited to submit nominations for these championships.
