District Sport Information

What is district sport?

Every primary school in Queensland is aligned with a district sporting organisation.   To become a member of this organisation each school has to pay a levy each year.

Mayfield state school is aligned with the Lytton District Sports.

District sport trials offer students of high to very high ability the opportunity to join a pathway to make state sporting teams in certain disciplines.

It is very important to note, that these trials are not for having a go or to see if a child likes a sport, they are solely to choose a district sporting team which then tries for further representative honours.

Anyone who qualifies for a Lytton sports team then attends a Regional event, with 3-4 other district teams. 

Our region is the Metropolitan East Region and students who make this team then compete in a state trial.

This year, Lytton District Sports offers opportunities to trial for the following teams:

Aquathlon (Boys & Girls 12 yrs & under)

Australian Football (Boys & Girls 12 yrs & under)
