The 13s Triangular Tournment will double as the 2014 Northland Swords 13s trial for players and also the 2014 Northland Swords 13s Coaching Staff.
30 players will be selected to be a part of the Northland Swords 13s Training Squad. (Players must be born in the years 2001 and 2002, some consideration will be given to players born in 2003 – any players not born in these years will not be eligible to enter).
Coaching staff positions are available for Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Trainer and Manager.
RLN will have a coaching selection panel observing all coaches throughout the day, in all areas involved with coaching, in what we would see fit as the right people to be in charge of all the above roles for the 2014 Swords 13s Team.

All Players must be registered club players, including valid forms of identification submitted, playing week in week out footy, Coaches must submit a Team list by Tuesday 12th August 2014 that will be checked off by RLN.
Any players found not registered and without valid identification, will not be able to play or be selected. Any team submitting ineligible players will forfeit games they have played on the day and the Coach could forfeit the right to Coach the 2014 Swords 13s team.
We need to insure that the opportunities are for the kids actively playing with a level playing field of age.
