2023 Junior Rep Calendar

The 2023 junior rep season kicks off at GCTA with selection trials held in February. With the announcement of Junior State Cup being held in Rockhampton it has been decided that only Gold Coast A teams will attend the event with all other teams attending the local events. There has been a change in the selection process however – both weeks of selection trials are now open for all players to attend!


If you are trialling for selection you must complete the player EOI and please see further information below.

Gold Coast Touch is blessed to have some of the finest players, coaches and minds of touch football involved at our Association. 2023 sees the introduction of a highly qualified and experienced Technical Panel to oversee the running of the junior representative program. We thank the panel for volunteering their time and look forward to their impact and input this season.
