Interschool sport

Ipswich District interschool sport

Ipswich District 12 years and under school sport caters for students attending affiliated state and non-state schools within the greater Ipswich area. The aim of the organisation is to provide students with a recognised pathway for District representative school sport, leading to opportunities to represent the Metropolitan West region and ultimately Queensland State representation.

District trials (PDF, 52KB) are conducted for a variety of sports throughout the year. From these trials, a squad is invited to attend and participate in the Metropolitan West Regional Trials. Trial notices are disseminated to school administration and school sports coordinators about a month prior to the initial trial date and it is up to schools to promote these with their students and wider communities. If students wish to nominate for these trials, they will need to approach their school sports coordinator and they will organise paperwork for them.

Ipswich District school sport prides itself on holding high expectations on the behaviour and participation of students, staff and parents/spectators. As a result, we have a code of conduct for spectators and students that promotes the value of positive participation in school sport within our district. It is our expectation that all representatives of the Ipswich District, including spectators, adhere to this policy and provide a positive perception of Ipswich District school sport in the wider community.

Each year, numerous schools from the Ipswich and surrounding districts participate in Friday afternoon interschool sporting competitions. There are two seasons throughout the year (9 weeks per season), with students engaged in a range of sports throughout the winter and summer season.
