Cancellations to Cricket Fixtures

Dear Cricket Community,

As we approach our Round 2 fixture with Gregory Terrace it is important to understand arrangements should there be any cancellations to fixtures.

Please be reminded that cancellations to matches can only be found in two places:

  1. The Sport and Activities website under Calendars, Sport Fixtures
  2. The TGS App – Notifications will be pushed on the TGS app (as long as you have notifications enabled on your device)

Please avoid early morning phone calls to TGS staff as it slows down our lines of communication.

Please ensure you check the website/app before leaving home to avoid disappointment.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Kind regards,

Ben Schuhmacher

Sport Representative Pathways – Expression of Interest

2020 Combined Calendar (10 OCTOBER 2019) docx

The following was emailed to all current TGS parents – Thursday, 30 January 2020.

 

Dear Parents,

 

TGS is supportive of boys being able to access Toowoomba Secondary School Sport (TSSS) and Darling Downs School Sport (DD) representative pathways.

To reduce whole school emails please follow this LINK to indicate if you would like to receive information regarding representative sport trials.

 

A copy of the 2020 Darling Downs School Sport Combined Sporting Calendar is attached for your reference.

Please note: 10 – 12 age groups are managed by the Junior School, for more information regarding 10 – 12 years trials please contact Liz Pratt – l.pratt@twgs.qld.edu.au

 

For more information, please contact the Sport & Activities Office.

Junior School – Representative Sport Pathways

Darling Downs representative teams sign up. 

2020 Darling Downs School Sport Calendar

Please find attached a copy of the Darling Downs Sport Calendar for 2020 for your convenience.

If your son is interested in trialling for any of the sports listed on the calendar, please complete the attached form via the link found here.

 

Please note that this is an expression of interest and does not automatically guarantee that your son will be selected to trial.  All schools are restricted in the number of boys who can trial in a given sport, and a selection process may be implemented if required. Boys who are selected to trial will receive further paperwork before the trial.

 

Toowoomba Grammar Junior School follows a series of guidelines to ensure the selection process is fair and transparent.  Decisions will be made in conjunction with coaches and teachers but the final decision will be at the discretion of the Sportsmaster. Boys will be judged primarily using the following guidelines:

  •         A positive attitude. Someone who is willing to learn and grow;
  •         A committed approach to training;
  •         Requisite skills and experience in the sport.

 

Students may be relieved of their selection if they display behaviour at school that does not meet the standards expected.

 

Swimming, cross country and track and field nominations will be selected from the internal carnivals held here at Toowoomba Grammar School. Year 7 boys who are still Under 12 will also be considered for selection in these events.
