SOUTH Burnett's best junior futsal talents are set to take on the nation's finest.

The Kingaroy Rustixs 16s Queensland Country Boys team will compete in next month's National Futsal Championships in Sydney.

The Rustixs' preparation for nationals has involved weekly training each Wednesday afternoon at the Kingaroy State High School Indoor Sports Centre.

The squad of seven squeezed in some valuable preparation at the recent Kingaroy Futsal Cup.

The team will travel to Maryborough this weekend to play matches against other Queensland Country teams in the last minute build-up to nationals.

Rustixs coach Debbie Ovens identified the key areas needed for success in Sydney.

"We'll win in Sydney depending on a couple of key areas - rotations, movement and talk," she said.

"Another key area will be the subbing and working out rotations and who plays well together and who doesn't."

Ovens said the group's continuity and years spent playing together would be a strength.

"Because they started playing together at a young age, 99% of the time they play really well together," she said.

"They've grown up playing against each other so they know each other's games well."

The National Futsal Championships junior competition will be held from January 7-10 in Sydney.

Kingaroy Rustixs Queensland Country 16s squad: Sam Gray, Shane Hall, Ryan Mooney, Bailey Raines, Zac Strauss, Luke Vandenberg and Reuben Vandenberg.
