Representative Sport


Each year students 10 -12 years of age who have demonstrated exceptional sporting talent have the opportunity to trial for a place in an Eastern Taipans District Representative Team in their chosen sport. If selected students will represent the Eastern Taipans in a competition against teams from the four remaining districts, vying for the opportunity to make selection into the regional Met West team.

The Eastern Taipans offer trials for, but is not limited to, the following sports: netball, baseball, basketball, volleyball, touch football, rugby league, rugby union, squash, tennis, AFL, soccer, golf, softball, water polo and cricket.

The trialling process is highly competitive and we recommend only nominating if your child has experience playing at a competitive level.

Unfortunately, each school may only send 2 students per trial.  This means that all final applicants are at the discretion of the PE teachers (Mr Hass and Miss Lee).  Please note, to aid in the decision making process we may contact a parent or carer and ask for a brief history of your child’s playing experience.

If your child is interested in nominating for an Eastern Taipans District Team they may see Mr Hass or Miss Lee directly. Alternatively, you may wish to contact Mr Hass or Miss Lee via email.
