The purpose of the 16U and 18U State Titles is to provide an opportunity for the best players, coaches and umpires from across Queensland to compete against each other in a high quality competition.
The competition also provides players with a shared platform to compete for selection in the Queensland 17U and 19U Squads for the following year. It also creates the transition point from Association based netball (State Age and Queensland Premier League) into broader regional representative netball to drive the competitiveness and depth of talent in the Ruby and Sapphire Series Competitions
At the conclusion of the tournament the Queensland 17U and 19U squads are announced. These squads will train across the preseason before the final team is selected to compete at the National Netball Championships 2022.
This year, 2021, we are providing men and boys an opportunity to be identified for inclusion and selection in the high performance pathway.
