Vixens rookie launch Championships


Melbourne Vixens new recruit, Emily Mannix helped announce the 2015 Netball Victoria Association Championships Association hosts today at the Victorian Baptist Netball Association in Essendon.

Mannix, 20, played with the Bellarine and District Netball Association across all age groups and was talent identified for the Central West Zone Academy, which ultimately helped with her gain selection in the Victorian 15/Under State team.

“The Association Championships is such an important part of the Netball Victoria pathway in becoming an elite netballer. The talent identification process has certainly helped me achieve my goals and direct me towards playing with the Melbourne Vixens,” Mannix said.

“This competition is critical in establishing the athlete pathway in Victoria, and it goes without saying that sponsorship from Lumo Energy is crucial in delivering these events in our metropolitan and regional centres.”

The Netball Victoria Association Championships, now in its 16th year of competition, provides players from Victoria’s 223 netball Associations the opportunity to compete in what has become a crucial part of the Netball Victoria talent pathway, as well as assisting in the development of coaches, umpires and officials.

The Association Championships involve events across each of the six Netball Victoria Association Zones throughout metro and regional Victoria starting on 31st May. The championships culminate in finals held at the Waverley Netball Centre in Melbourne on Sunday 28 June and is proudly supported by Lumo Energy.
