Darwin Region representation in School of Sport Education NT Programs
Darwin region teams or squads are selected to attend SSNT Championships or Development Camps for Interstate selection. To be selected, students must have participated in the sport at regional level and developed an appropriate level of knowledge and skills in the sport.
School Sport Australia age dispensation policy is applied to regional selections where applicable. It only applies in select sports.
All teams and squads rely on volunteer team coaches and managers to train students and supervise travelling groups.
