Australia’s best youth Touch Football talent will be on display at Stockland Park from Wednesday, 11 September until Saturday, 14 September 2013 when they compete in the 2013 Touch Football Australia X-Blades National Youth Championships.
The event returns to Stockland Park in 2013 and will see 36 teams from across the country, including four from New Zealand, competing in the 18’s Boys and Girls divisions.
The Sunshine Coast Pineapples will field teams in both the 18’s Boys and 18’s Girls division, with Australian 18’s Girls representatives, Chloe Crotty and Evania Pelite part of the team.
It is the third time that the National Youth Championships event has been held in Kawana, following the 2010 and 2011 events being held at the venue. The event will return in 2014, and will be held in conjunction with the 2014 State of Origin Series.

The Sunshine Coast’s Kimberley Sue See will be a player to watch for the Fire, recently named in the Australian Women’s Open squad for next year’s Trans Tasman Series against New Zealand.
New South Wales Combined Catholic Colleges will be looking for consecutive titles in the 18’s Boys division after their win over Queensland Secondary Schools Touch in 2012.
