IMPORTANT

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will NOT be allowing spectators to attend trials. While we understand this decision will disappoint some people, expected numbers are such that it would be difficult to maintain mandated measures including social distancing and enhanced hygiene within the stadium. As per the NSW Government instructions patrons, 16 and over are to be double vaccinated, or medically exempt to enter the premises. 

At this stage, these measures will be taken for all 2022 Representative trials, both boys & girls. Please see our updated COVID-19 page for more information on drop off and pick up procedures.
