Sunday 23rd June saw the best leagues and associations from around Victoria come together for the Association Championships- Finals Day. A record 51 teams competed in the Eastern Region qualifying day, across 14 different leagues and associations. Those who played in the Grand Finals in the Championship divisions were invited to play the winners and runners up from the other regions across Victoria. Open teams automatically progressed to Finals Day.
Representing Eastern Zone were:
Under 13: Gippsland League & Sale Netball Association
Under 15: Gippsland League & Ellinbank & District Netball Association
Under 17: Gippsland League & North Gippsland Football Netball League
Open: West Gippsland Football Netball League
Held in Frankston, the day was a little chilly for the athletes and spectators. The fog didn’t lift until play was well and truly underway, but you wouldn’t know it from the intensity and speed at which the matches were played. All our teams represented our region with passion and should be incredibly proud of their performances. Three of our seven teams played in the Semi or Preliminary Finals (Gippsland 13’s- Prelim, Gippsland 15’s- Semi and North Gippsland 17’s- Semi).
Association Championships are an integral part of the Netball Victoria Athlete Pathway. For more information on the official athlete pathway, please see the below links:
