GLENNIE Heights State School is the first school to put up its hand to visit the National Polocrosse tournament from April 23-29.

Warwick Polocrosse Club president Les Fraser said the 50 students would have the chance to see just how great the sport was.

"It exposes the game to them and it is such a great family sport," Mr Fraser said.

Glennie Heights teacher Michelle Wixted said it was a great opportunity for the kids.

"They get an experience they perhaps wouldn't get otherwise," Mrs Wixted said.

Year 7 student Jayden Pedersen said he couldn't wait to attend the tournament.

"I'm really excited because I haven't played many sports, only rugby really" he said.
