High ability levels required to attend trials.

District sports trials are not designed for children to “have a go” at a new sport.

They are solely to select a team to represent the Lytton district at a Regional Sports Carnival, which in turn is there to select a State Team in that given sport. 

Hence, only children who are considered very proficient for these above sports are able to attend the trials. 

Proficiency suitability will be decided by school representative on a case-by-case basis.

Nomination Process:

In order for a Mayfield student to attend a Lytton District Sports Trial, they must be nominated by their school.

This year Mr Lane is the teacher responsible for nominating children from Mayfield State School for these trials.

To guarantee nominations students must register their interest with Mr Lane prior to the trial occuring. 

This can be done in one of 2 ways:

1.    Parents can email Mr Lane on to register their child’s interest in an upcoming trial. 

2.    Child can come and see Mr Lane to let him know of their interest in being considered for a trial.

A full list of trial dates is available at the Lytton Sport website:

When you log onto this site, if you receive a message box asking for a username and password, please choose cancel and the document should open.

Please refer to the Calendars on the above sight for a list of trial dates throughout the year, or look under Representative Sports News in the newsletter to check upcoming trials

Mr Lane will receive details of where and when these trials are to be conducted a few weeks before they are held.

He will pass these details on to any students who have registered their interest in attending a trial and who are deemed to be of suitable ability.

These students will need to complete the relevant forms before attending these trials.

These forms need to be completed in accordance with the details given on the Trial Information Sheet.

The dates for the Regional Trial will be placed on the original information sheet. 

If children cannot attend the Regional trial they should not attend the district trial.

Trial Attendance:

It is very important that students who nominate for a district trial attend this trial. 

Students need to arrange their own transport to and from these trials.

Further Representative Opportunities:

Any children selected in a Lytton District Teams go on to represent our District at a Regional carnival.

Any children selected to Represent Metropolitan East Teams then attend State Titles. 

If they are chosen for State Teams, they then compete at National Titles.
