U-20[edit]

The current U-20 competition has all 13 Major League clubs as well as a second Surfers Paradise team. These teams are named Surfers Sharks and Surfers Dodgers. There is no Northside/Southside ladder or weighting of fixtures, but Windsor Royals, Pine Hills Lightning and Hendrea All Stars are considered Northside teams for the All-Star games.

All-Star Teams[edit]

The U-18 All-Star team was named on 8 December 2008 with a Northside and Southside team. However, particularly strong players competing for position were able to be switched regardless of teams. Although it is named the U-18 All-Star team, a few players from the U-20 GBL competition have also been chosen. They will play on 20 December 2008.[1]
