High Performance Academy Selected from City Vs Country Series

In November 2019, Australian Oztag conducted the inaugural High Performance Academy (HPA), held at the Sydney Academy of Sport, which was deemed a big success.

The top 19 males and top 19 females in the country between the ages of 13-15 were identified and selected to take part in the HPA.

With the teams and venue announcement for the 2020 NSW Junior City Vs Country series imminent, this will be the tournament for New South Wales based players where the HPA selectors will be monitoring players.

For Queensland based players, Queensland Oztag and HPA selectors will nominate players from the recent QLD Junior State Cup.

This year’s High Performance Academy which will be led by former NRL player (263 games), Michael Buettner will again be held at the Sydney Academy of Sport in Narrabeen, from 13th to 15th November.

All players that are selected for the 2020 HPA will receive full HPA kit allocation, accommodation and meals, covered by Australian Oztag for the duration of the HPA. Queensland players will also have their flights covered by Australian Oztag. To read about the 2019 HPA and the players selected, click here.
