The Australian Schools Rugby Union ‘ASRU’ is delighted to announce the Australian Schoolgirls Sevens Team 2023.
The team will represent Australia at the Global Youth Sevens tournament, to be held on the Gold Coast 9-10 December 2023.
“I am very proud to announce the inaugural Australian Schoolgirls Sevens Team which will represent Australia at the Global Youth Sevens tournament in December,” said Sarah Ridgewell, ASRU executive responsible for Girl’s Sevens. “This is a very exciting development for the Australian Schools Rugby Union ‘ASRU’ and all female student athletes.
“The ASRU has a proud and established tradition with the Australian Schoolboys XVs teams, and we know that the Australian Schoolgirls Sevens will follow this path, offering extraordinary opportunities for our student athletes.
“I would like to thank all the teachers, schools and School Sport bodies around the country for supporting this high performance pathway for our female student athletes.
“I would also like to thank Rugby Australia for their ongoing support with our program, transitioning our female athletes and staff into the high performance sevens space. For many of the girls in this inaugural team, this is their first step to fulfilling their aspirations of a professional rugby career and of course Olympic honours.
“We wish the girls all possible success at the Global Youth Sevens.”
