Swans Junior Touch Skills and Drills Clinic

Approximately 90 kids attended the Swans Junior Touch Skills and Drills Clinic held for 7 to 12 year olds at the Toowoomba Touch complex yesterday morning. The kids all seemed to enjoy the session and I am sure they went away from it with a better understanding of the basics of our game. SWQ Touch would like to thank the parents for bringing their kids along to the session, the 12 presenters for delivering the activities to the kids and the Prendergast’s for looking after the BBQ and canteen. 

NYC Results

SWQ Touch congratulates our Boys and Girls teams on their performances at the recently completed National Youth Champs in Kawana. Both teams finished 9th in their division which is a great effort by the players and a credit to the coaching staff. We would also like to thank our physios, Allie and Tom, who did a fantastic job for our players. Last but not least, thanks to our 3 referees, Luke McKenzie, Trevor Schelberg and Riley Prendergast for officiating at the event.

2016 Junior State Champs Results

SWQ Touch would like to congratulate all of our players on their performances at the Junior State Champs held at the Glasshouse Mountains last weekend. Our 6 teams were once again very competitive with 5 of them (12 Girls, 12 Boys, 14 Girls, 14 Boys & 16 Boys) progressing to the semi-final stage and the 14 Boys making it all the way to the grand-final. Unfortunately, they were beaten 6 – 3 in the decider by North Qld. A great effort by our teams which meant SWQ finished 4th overall. 

Congratulations to Demi Ashurst who was named Player of the Series in the 12 Girls and to Emily Ward who was named Player of the Series in the 14 Girls.

 Congratulations to the following players who were selected in Qld squads for the 14s and 16s divisions:

Results – 2016 Swans Secondary All Schools

Our  Swans Secondary All Schools tournament was held  last Sunday at the Toowoomba Touch complex where 74 teams from 25 schools competed across the 7 divisions on offer. The weather throughout the day was fantastic which made for very pleasant conditions for players and spectators alike. The standard of Touch and sportsmanship on display was high as usual which is a credit to the teachers, players and coaching staff.     

SWQ Touch would like to thank all of the schools involved for providing their students with the opportunity to participate at this event and we wish those who are attending the Qld All Schools in October the best of luck. Thanks also to our admin staff and first aid officers and a special thank-you is extended to the referees, particularly Lee Moller, Mackenzie Moller and Pat Williams who came all the way from Kingaroy to help us out.
