This year, to facilitate communication, we will be posting State Team information on this QKA website under the State Team section above.
To begin the process and nominate yourself for membership on the team please visit the State Team Online Nomination Form. This form needs to be filled out on-line prior to 5:00pm, Friday 31 March. The nomination fee, which is non-refundable, is:
1st Family member – $175.00
2nd Family member – $155.00
3rd and subsequent Family members – $135.00
A regional fee structure is available for central and north Queensland athletes.
Payment is to be made through PAYPAL via a link on the form. Your nomination will not be accepted without payment.
Individuals and Parents/Guardians must fill out this form themselves. Unlike previous years, HOS, Coaches and QKA Members should not fill in the form on the behalf of others. Individuals who are not immediate family members must fill in the form separately and are not eligible for the discounted family rate.
By nominating, you are indicating your availability for Queensland team selection. It does not mean that you have been selected. Your nomination is also subject to final confirmation from your Head of Style, which we will seek to obtain on your behalf. The State Team will be announced at 5:00 pm, Friday 20 April on the QKA website.
The Head coach is Steven Kelly who is also the Head Kata Coach. The Head Kumite Coach is Robyn Choi. They are supported by a number of State and assistant coaches. Nauria Hampton will be the Team Manager who will be working with Alan Key, QKA Treasurer.
Should you nominate and not be selected, you may still participate in team training sessions.
Also, as part of the QKA’s commitment to fostering karate’s development in the State, athletes who competed in the State Titles, and who do not wish to be considered for selection in the State team, may still participate in State team training sessions by completing the nomination form and selecting the TRAIN ONLY check box. The standard nomination fee must still be paid.
Team training is compulsory for team members. Team training commences Saturday June 3. Further details will be posted on the website and Facebook as the date draws near.
You must also compete in the QKA’s Invitational Tournament May 26-27.
