Students are eligible for selection in Associated Independent Colleges (AIC) representative teams. Members of the 1st XI Football team and the 1st XV Rugby team are selected into their respective AIC team for games against GPS teams.
In Rugby, two teams are selected, AIC 1 and AIC 2. Both rugby teams play in a schoolboys competition which can lead to selection in the Queensland and Australian Schoolboys teams.
Notable Australian Schoolboys representatives include Wallabies Mark Connors and Brendan Cannon. 2008 Senior, James Ambrosini, had great success with the Australian Schoolboys team in 2008. The team was the first Australian Schoolboys team to beat New Zealand on their home soil.
Representative School Sport – The Queensland School Sport Pathway
The Queensland School Sport Pathway is the representative sport pathway that our College belongs to. This pathway involves trials at a district, regional, state and national level. The College is currently in the Mt Gravatt District (10 Years-12 Years) and Composite District (13 Years-19 Years). Both districts are in the Metropolitan East School Sport Region.
Each sport offered within this pathway may have a slightly different pathway for selection. As a general rule, students must attend a district trial. From the district trial a district team is selected to compete at the regional trial. From the regional trial a Metropolitan East team is selected to compete at the State Championships. Trials are advertised to boys and parents once nomination information is received by the school.
SLC Procedures – Trialing For Representative Sport
A full list of sports and their trial dates for the first level of trials will be placed onto the College website, sports noticeboards and will be periodically included in the sports newsletter. It is student’s responsibility to be aware when trials are to be held. Individual trial announcements will be included in the sports newsletter and daily notices.
Attendance at Trials and Selection to Attend Trials
For some trials, St Laurence’s is limited to the number of students who can attend. In these cases and where the College has a sporting team in that sport, the College will decide on the students nominated for the trial. In sports where the College does not have a sporting program, it will be the individual student’s responsibility to prove they are of a standard to attend the trial. For the championship sports of swimming and athletics, students must meet set qualifying times. To attend any trial students must have a consent form stamped and signed by the sports department (or principal).
