Queensland Rugby provides a number of programs for growing the game in schools, foremost among them being the Ballymore Cup, the state's largest school Rugby competition.
The Ballymore Cup provides an opportunity for "non-traditional" rugby playing schools who win their respective regional championships to test themselves against other regional champions from across the state.
As well, each year the Queensland Rugby Football Schools Union selects schoolboy teams to participate in regional and national titles.
The QRFSU also hosts international teams on behalf of the ARFSU.
The QRFSU also represents the rugby playing school groups, GPS, AIC and TAS (which administer their own rugby competitions independently of Queensland Rugby) and the Combined Secondary Schools.
