PRESIDENT’S   ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF SCHOOL SPORT AUSTRALIA,
               I WELCOME ALL STUDENTS, TEACHERS, TEAM OFFICIALS

WELCOME        AND PARENTS TO THE 2018 SCHOOL SPORT AUSTRALIA 15
               YEARS AND UNDER CHAMPIONSHIP.

               Established in 1981, School Sport Australia is responsible for the
               development and promotion of school sport in Australia. Each
               year school sport representative opportunities are provided for
               over 6,000 students.
               State and Territory school sport bodies work collaboratively
               and have accepted responsibility for implementing School
               Sport Australia programs, assisting in policy development and
               providing, through their individual state/territory networks, the
               maximum number of opportunities for students to participate
               in the broadest possible range of sporting activities. School
               sport is offered at district, regional, state and interstate level
               and each year, hundreds of thousands of Australian students
               are provided with participation opportunities.
               Approved international programs are features of the national
               school sport calendar. International competitions planned
               during 2018 include Hockey, Netball and Water Polo, plus schools
               and individuals will represent School Sport Australia at the
               International School Sport Federation Cross Country competition.
               Interstate sporting competitions provide opportunities for
               students to participate in sport at the highest level. These
               Championships are an integral part of the School Sport Australia
               program, not only for their sporting benefits, but also for the
               immense educational, cultural and social benefits they provide
               for the participants.
               I extend to all students my best wishes in their pursuit of
               selection for their State or Territory team and wish them an
               enjoyable and rewarding experience as they pursue their
               personal goals in this particular sporting endeavour.
               Representing a State or Territory is an achievement of which you
               can feel very proud. I hope that all competitors, team officials,
               organisers and supporters associated with this Championship
               derive satisfaction and fulfilment from their involvement.
               In closing, I wish to acknowledge and thank Queensland
               School Sport, Cricket Australia, Queensland Cricket, the
               Championship officials and all of the officials from the
               competing States and Territories for their contribution in
               ensuring the success of the Championship.

           JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY HAS HAD AN EXPERIENCE
           WITH SCHOOL SPORT AT SOME LEVEL. IN MY CASE

FORWARD    THE EXPERIENCE WAS SO GOOD THAT I HAVE BEEN
           FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO CONTINUE TO ATTEND
           MANY SCHOOL SPORT EVENTS AT ALL LEVELS.

           Queensland School Sport and the process of selection
           for our teams covers the entire state and just about
           every student gets a chance to participate in our
           program whether that be at the school selection trial or
           all the way to this School Sport Australia (SSA) event.
           The SSA 15yrs and Under Boys Cricket Championships
           being held on the Sunshine Coast and in Brisbane, this
           week is the culmination of a great deal of effort by the
           students who are here and the various school sports
           systems that support them. To the students, I wish you
           the best of luck and hope that in the future you have
           success and throughout your life continue to support
           sport in schools as your teachers and parents have
           supported you.
           To our parents who have made the trip to the Sunshine
           Coast / Brisbane, thank you for your ongoing support
           of your son/daughter and of our School Sport programs.
           I hope you enjoy your stay in beautiful Queensland.
           For our students, sport is about participation and it
           is a character building activity that will assist you to
           face the challenges in life. Give your best and reap
           the benefit of knowing that through your endeavours
           with the support of family you have reached the
           pinnacle of School Sport in Australia.
           I hope you all enjoy the championships and keep this
           program as a memento of a wonderful period of your
           schooling life.
           Enjoy the experience!

PACE BOWLER WELFARE
IN ORDER TO ENSURE WE MANAGE THE WELFARE OF YOUNG FAST BOWLERS,
THE FOLLOWING LIMITATIONS HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED TO REDUCE THE
OCCURRENCE OF BONE STRESS RELATED INJURIES.

MANAGEMENT APPROACH
• 10 Week Plan workloads are developed               • All balls bowled are recorded throughout
  for pace bowlers in each squad so that               the pre-season and season (education
  4 week average loads are 120-150 before              provided to players) to allow for monitoring
  championships so players are well prepared,          and plan adaptation.
  including standby players.                         • Regular review of plan and adapt
• Avoid spikes greater than 50%. The Athlete           throughout the season.
  Management System (AMS) provides a                 • AMS allows for wellness information to be
  warning to State Talent Managers (STM’s)             recorded and track how players are coping
  coaches, physiotherapists and strength and           with the planned loads injury recording.
  conditioning coaches at 50%.
                                                     • All injuries to be recorded on
• Ideally players should be able to be provided        AMS for the season by State
  a period of rest after the championships –           Physiotherapists for season.
  case managed approach in consultation with           This is a critical step in
  State Coaches, Grade clubs, and schools              gaining more knowledge
  for the targeted pace bowlers.                       at the Championships
                                                       and age level.

     PACE BOWLERS TO BE LIMITED TO
     U19 – 360 Balls (60) overs
     Given they are only One Day Matches this will mean they
     could miss 2 x Games if they bowl 10 overs.
     U17 – 312 Balls (52) overs
     Given they are only One Day Matches this will mean they
     could miss 3 x Games if they bowl 10 overs.
     15&U Recommendation
     30 overs limit to any medium and pace bowlers

     1. AGE                        2. WORKLOAD                     3. TECHNIQUE
     • Growing bones are           • Understand
       more susceptible              previous loads
       to injury                                                                35º
                                   • Plan & Monitor
     • Spinal bones                  for each individual
       don’t fully mature                                          Counter-rotation
       until the mid 20’s          • Avoid large load spikes       Greater than 35º is a risk
