The U18 Schoolgirls 15-a-side tour will take place from Thursday 28th June – Sunday 1st July 2018.

The team will fly to Sydney and then drive to Canberra to play against ACT City, ACT Country, Sydney West, NSW Country, South Australia and the Melbourne Rebels.

They will stay and play matches at the Australian Institute of Sport and will tour the facilities, and tour the Brumbies’ High Performance facilities at the University of Canberra.

This tour will provide Tasmanian girls with the development opportunities and understanding of what life is like as an elite athlete, as Rugby Australia and Rugby Tasmania continues to create elite pathways for talented girls through to the new Super W competition and Uni7s tournaments.

The player levy will be between $800-$1000, but sponsorship and fundraising activities will be instigated to reduce the cost. This levy must be fully paid one month prior to departure.
