The selections for the 15s and 17s Northern Swords camps have been done, with invitations going out to players this week.
This is a great opportunity for our players to develop not only as a player, but as a person to achieve long-term career goals. The Northern Swords will help players on a pathway and prepare them for a future in sport or any other chosen profession.
As a member of the Swords training squad, players will be competing for a place in a 25 man squad that will be finalised in August. Selections in the final squad will not only be based on football skill, but also on players commitment to training, their work ethic and teamwork. Playing for the Swords is a massive commitment, with the requirement for players to attend all training sessions which could involve extensive travel across Northland.
But the rewards are huge and the players will be playing against the best League players in New Zealand for their ages. It will only take one good game to be noticed either by an NRL Scout or by a Kiwi age grade selector.
Below is documentation for event dates, forms, costs and team policy.
