Congratulations to all players selected to represent the Rockhampton Cyclones at the 2024 Senior state Cup. Please read the following information carefully and we will be in touch with shadows shortly with further options.
The next steps:
- Don’t book your accommodation just yet! The team is not confirmed until registrations close on the 27th of October 2023. Once the team has received enough registrations your coach will let you know that the team has the numbers.
- Registering – is the same way you nominated for trials. See the instructions below. Registrations and uniform orders are due by the 27th of October 2023.
- Once you have registered your coach will be notified and they will commence interactions with you this will be in the week after the 27th of October.
Travel and Accommodation:
Once we pass the 27th of October I will then confirm with everyone that the team received enough registrations to officially enter the team into the competition (teams need a minimum of 12). Once I confirm this you will then be able to commence booking your travel and accommodation plans. Players are to organise their way to and from the event and accommodation. It is recommended to allow ample travel time to and from the event. Games could potentially commence early Friday morning and if teams make the finals these games may not conclude until late Sunday afternoon. Most players and families travel down on the Thursday and back on the Sunday afternoon/evening or Monday. Generally accommodation can be found from Mooloolaba to Caloundra which is all within 20mins from the field (pending busy traffic periods).
Training will commence early November once all the teams have been confirmed and coaches and assistant coaches have been appointed. Training sessions will be held on Sundays at Saleyards Park and will run for 1.5hrs. There will be approximately 12 sessions before the event. Attendance to a minimum of 75% of trainings arranged is expected as we look for commitment to our teams and coaches who will we be focused on developing the teams and players skills over this time. Failure to attend training will see your position in the team revoked.
Each year Rockhampton offers sponsorship opportunities to businesses in support of our teams. The sponsorship goes directly into the players by way of event set up (Marquee), catering (food and drinks) and supplies (Ice, first aid etc) during the event and awards presentations. Without the assistance of sponsors, Rockhampton Oztag will be limited in what is able to be supplied particularly with the increased number of teams we are taking to the event. If you know of a business or anyone who might be interested in our sponsorship packages, please send me an email and I will email you the request for sponsorship letter.
