The Australian Sevens program in partnership with the Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) is on a mission to systematically unearth and develop Queensland’s most talented athletes and prepare them for potential success at the 2032 Olympics

A program funded by the Queensland Government, it will provide individuals with the opportunity to show their skill and ability in the chance of being selected in The Australian Sevens program.

To be eligible forYoufor2032you must be:

  • 13 to 23-years old (born between 1999–2009 inclusive) for Olympic Sports, or
  • 13 to 30-years old (born between 1992–2009 inclusive) for Paralympic Sports.

It doesn’t matter whether you have experience in any of these sports – you may have hidden talents yet to be discovered. Athletic ability coupled with a great attitude to excel are the key ingredients needed for #Youfor2032

The QAS will begin their state-wide talent identification screening beginning on 13 May 2022 and will unfold over a 12-month period.

During this time, generic testing followed by sport specific testing will unfold to match those participants who possess elite potential to the Sport of best fit.

Following sport specific testing, a small number of Youfor2032 participants will be provided with a three-month trial period within The Australian Sevens development program, to further explore their potential.

Those successful in being selected for the program will receive expert training, coaching and development support from both The Queensland Reds and Rugby Australia as well as the QAS.
