Entries to the 2016 Association Championships close on Sunday 1 May

Entering its 17th year, the Association Championships promise to be bigger and better than ever this year after 340 teams from 112 associations competed in 2015.

This year 220 associations from across Victoria have the opportunity to compete in 13/U, 15/U and 17/U and Open divisions.

Supported by Lumo Energy, the Association Championships play a vital part of Netball Victoria’s Athlete Development Pathway with talent scouts from across the state in attendance and looking to identify gifted athletes.

The competition is pivotal in providing opportunities for athletes and umpires to gain positions within Netball Victoria’s High Performance programs.

“The Association Championships allow Netball Victoria to use the competition for talent identification purposes, helping young athletes pursue their dream of playing higher netball starting with our zone academy programs,” Netball Victoria Competitions Manager Angela Banbury said.

“We also encourage coach mentoring and can help umpires in regional areas who don’t get the exposure as often to higher levels of netball.”
