Below holds the details of the 2017 try-outs. The 2018 try-outs will be announced following the appointments of the 2018 managers, and held around February.

The new season’s try-outs will follow the same procedures, with players registering interest in the try-outs they would like to attend. Players who cannot make either dates for their team’s try-outs may submit a video showcasing their skills instead.

Anyone can attend try-outs for a QPL team, regardless of experience. Some try-outs are open to those not wishing to compete for a place on a QPL team, but would instead like their first taste of what it means to train with potential QPL athletes.

Players will be expected to bring studded boots and athletic gear they don’t mind getting muddy. Other equipment will be provided, but you are of course welcome to bring your own brooms and headbands.
