Sydney Scorpions junior pathway and updated selection timeline information leading into the 2023 NSWTA Junior Regionals and TFA National Youth Championships can be found below.
Initial squad sizes will be larger than previous campaigns with the objective of providing an increased number of players with the opportunity to be named in the Scorpions squad and trial for the final team. This also allows continued TalentID for all squad players, which will likely be beneficial for the selection of NYC 2023 final teams. The initial squad trials will take place on Sunday 19 March, with train-on squads of 18-22 players selected from these trials. Train-on squad training takes place for 2 weeks (23 March – 6 April) and after this final teams of 14 players will be published on or before Friday 7 April. An advantage with the train-on squads is that coaches and selectors will have two weeks to watch players at team training, providing players with an increased opportunity to impress and push for final team selection.
