Redcliffe Dolphins will play host to the carnival which has attracted teams from areas as widespread as Bundaberg, Rockhampton, Oakey, the Burnett Region, Gold Coast and Hervey Bay. Local schools in attendance include Caboolture State School, Kippa Ring State School, Morayfield State High School and Southern Cross Catholic College. The Broncos Schoolgirl Challenge hosts Under 12s, 14s, 16s and Open Divisions and includes the opportunities for girls to register as an individual player and participate in a Barbarians team. All of the 500 participants will receive a football and t-shirt at the carnival.
This event will be the first of many under the direction of ARL Development’s Female Participation Development Officer Jo Breakspear, “This is the largest rugby league schoolgirls carnival in Australia. The interest from schools has been overwhelming with the carnival at capacity in its first year. The Barbarians concept has also been a great drawcard for individual players.”
The event will be hosted by ARL Development in is supported by the Brisbane Broncos, Queensland Rugby League, South East Queensland Division and Redcliffe Dolphins. Returning from a successful tour of Samoa, Australian Women’s Rugby League Jillaroos representatives Renae Kunst and Tegan Rolfe will be in attendance to assist in coaching the Barbarians teams and selecting a merit team from each of the Divisions.
