Special Notes for Junior Teams:

  • Teams entering the u15 division may register a team of 2-, 3-, or 4-a-side if all members are under 15 years of age (born in 2010 or later) for the QBVT 2023/24 season. If one or more player/s are born in 2008 or 2009, the team is limited to registering two players per team in the u17 division.
  • At tournaments where Juniors and Senior start on different days, Juniors may choose to enter both. However, they will be ineligible to advance out of their pool in Senior Division to ensure they can meet all Junior Division playing commitments.
  • Junior seedings are calculated as per Seniors (ie best 3 results in past 365 days). Junior points are not transferable between divisions (eg points earned playing u17 are not applicable to u15 or to Seniors).
