Netball Victoria announces the Ultimate Netball Showdown
Netball Victoria is excited to announce the cities and towns to host the 2016 Association Championships, proudly supported by Lumo Energy.
Swan Hill, Ballarat, Knox, Doncaster, Geelong, Sale and Shepparton have been selected to host the Championships from Sunday 29 May to Sunday 5 June, with the finals taking place at the State Netball Hockey Centre on Sunday 26 June.
Registrations opened 15 February for Victorian Netball Associations and Leagues to participate.
“On behalf of Netball Victoria, I’d like to thank everyone who submitted an expression of interest and congratulate the communities that have been successful in their application to host the 2016 tournament, “said Netball Victoria Competitions Manager Angela Banbury.
The tournament, which is made possible with the support of Lumo Energy, is a vital part of the Netball Victoria Athlete Development Pathway.
Lumo Energy is entering its third year working in partnership with Netball Victoria and is looking forward to working with the not-for-profit and building on their commitment to athlete development opportunities in grass-roots netball.
This athlete development pathway helped Australian Diamond and Melbourne Vixen Captain, Madi Robinson reach her potential, competing in her first Association Championships in 2000 in the 13/U division.
Tim Harrington, Lumo Energy Executive General Manager of Marketing and Sales said;
“We are thrilled to announce our ongoing commitment to supporting youth netball in local communities across Victoria. Youth Netball is integral to the lives of many Victorian families, and we are honoured to be able to contribute to its growth.
“Lumo is proud to support the development of the next generation of Victorian netball talent. History has shown us that many Association Championships participants continue on to play at the state and national level.”
Netball Victoria Talent Scouts will attend the tournament again in 2016, identifying gifted athletes in 13/U, 15/U and 17/U age groups across both Championship and Reserve divisions.
