Sharks vs Scorpions Tompkins-Croft Series – January 2021

Update 31/12/20:  Sydney Scorpions & South Queensland Sharks have cancelled the upcoming Tompkins-Croft Series which was due to take place on 15-16 January 2021 on the Gold Coast. The ongoing uncertainty with COVID-19 and the Queensland border has led to this decision. Both regions look forward to the 2021 junior representative season and hopefully meeting each other on the playing field at the National Youth Championships on the Sunshine Coast in September 2021. Many thanks to all Scorpions players and parents for their ongoing support during the 2020 junior campaign. #StrongerTogether

The Sydney Scorpions and South Queensland Sharks are pleased to announce that the Tompkins-Croft Series will take place on 15-16 January 2021 on the Gold Coast. The event will see two of Australia’s most successful regions competing in six divisions including Boys & Girls 12/14/16’s.

The two regions have been in discussions for several months with Scorpions Regional Director Anthony Dudeck outlining further.

“We all know 2020 has been an incredibly challenging year – especially for our kids in NSW who have been starved of their beloved sports. Everyone at Scorpions was really looking forward to attending the 2020 Touch Football Australia National Youth Championships on the Sunshine Coast and being able to compete against interstate regions in junior divisions for the very first time.  However the border closures prevented this and as such we started discussions with Sharks on the possibility of hosting an event on the Gold Coast”.

“I know that our regions hold a great amount of mutual respect for what we have both achieved on and off the touch field. Our teams have been battling it out at Open and Senior level at the National Touch League for many years. This event provides our young athletes a fantastic and unique opportunity to go head-to-head against each other in six divisions over a three-game series. The responses from our expressions of interest via families have been overwhelmingly supportive. They have been with us every step of the way and we just had to listen to their positive endorsement of this exciting event”. 

According to South Queensland Sharks Affiliate Services Manager Mark Tipple, the event is also extremely exciting for the Sharks.  “Most definitely this is going to be a great few days of touch footy and we cannot wait to host our Scorpions friends from Sydney.  The Gold Coast and surrounding areas including our beaches are the perfect backdrop for a touch event. We hope that families can really relax and enjoy their time in our great city”. 

Sydney Scorpions teams will be based at the Gold Coast Performance Centre which is a premier sporting facility located in Runaway Bay. The sports performance centre is unrivalled as a destination for sporting teams to train, play and stay.

Anthony Dudeck said the opportunity for Scorpions teams to stay at the Performance Centre was something they couldn’t pass up. “We will be in camp a day prior to our first game and this will no-doubt help with our preparation. Scorpions are most definitely aware of our junior athletes’ touch football commitments including the upcoming NSWTA Junior State Cup in February. We are therefore limiting the number of our training sessions held prior to the event. The facilities at the Performance Centre will be the perfect setting for our High Performance Unit to best prepare and recover our teams during the event. We are also extremely fortunate to have two highly valued Sydney Scorpions Player Mentors in Jackson Mills (Parramatta TA) and Simone Rodgers (Hills Hornets TA & Northern Suburbs TA) as part of our touring team. We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank NSWTA for their ongoing support during discussions involving this event”.

In a mark of respect to Life Members from both Sharks and Scorpions, the Series will be named in honour of Lou Tompkins and Gary Croft who passed away earlier this year.  Both gentlemen were highly respected members of the touch football community and their memories will long live on.
