DEVELOPMENT SELECTION PROCESS AND PROGRESSION
You will notice a change to the selection process for development teams this year. Traditionally, teams have been selected along geographic lines (Gold - North, Black - South and White - Central). It has been found that this is not the most effective method, as it limited the amount players that could be selected and led to mismatches at the district selection carnival, which in turn makes selecting a Divisional side more challenging.

This year, selectors picked development teams based on the most suitable players in each position (not on geography), with efforts made to select even Development teams.
This should see evenly contested games at the District trials, thereby enabling selectors to pick the strongest Divisional Falcons sides.
From the district trials on the 6th and 7th of April, Falcons divisional sides will be selected in U13, U14 and U16 Boys and U14 and U16 Girls.
These Falcons sides will compete at the Divisional Carnival at Bundaberg on the 6th-9th of June against the South West Mustangs, Wide Bay Bulls and Central Capras.

From this carnival, a Central Crows side will be selected in U14 and U16 boys and girls, to compete in the State Carnival on the Sunshine Coast on the 4th to 7th of July. An U13 Central Crows development squad will also be selected, and will participate in a camp later in the year.
PLEASE NOTE: U15's boys do not compete at Divisional Carnival, selected players will take part in a development program that will be communicated at a later date.
