Queensland Representative School Sport provides, fosters and develops sporting programs within state schools and colleges, and the non-state schools affiliated with Queensland Representative School Sport.
This is achieved through the coordination of regional programs across our
12 school sport regions which provides the necessary network to cover the state of Queensland.
Currently we have
21 affiliated sports in our representative school sport program. Each of our affiliated sports is managed by a committee of dedicated teachers who oversee State Championships and State Teams. These committees and teams are managed by the Queensland School Sport Unit.
The annual student participation rates for our representative school sport program are approximately:
- regional participation: 49,700
- state championship participation: 13,500
- state team representatives: 1,200
