“The All Schools have always been there to learn how to play the game at the next level and we are never disappointed,” she said.

“We feel very fortunate that we have been selected and have the opportunity to play against some exceptional touch football teams,” Hannah said.
“As Queensland is a huge advocate for the sport, it provides us as young women with the opportunity to be inspired and become strong and skilled players,” she said.
“Each year we come back we have a new insight of the game, the passion to implement new skills and the ability as a team to move forward with the game,” added team mate Gigi.
“The memories we make on these trips hold a lifelong place in our hearts and we always come away hungry for more,” she said.
Fellow Year 13 student Ariana said that the team has set themselves the goal of learning as much from the competition as possible.
“As individuals and as a team, we have set different goals to achieve our personal bests and get as far in the tournament as possible,” Ariana said.
“Listening to players from previous years, the standard of play is phenomenal to watch and experience, so we’re excited to learn and fully immerse ourselves in the competition,” she said.
