Victoria’s youngest National Bench Official


Netball Victoria congratulates Sinead Watkins on achieving the National Bench Official Accreditation during the Australian Netball League Finals on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 July.

This accreditation will allow 18-year-old Watkins to be a Bench Official at the ANZ Championship level. As the young bench official continues to develop her skills in the Trans-Tasman Netball League, she will be eligible to be part of the Official Bench at international competition in Australia.

Watkins is in her third year at SEDA, a senior secondary provider that engages students in their education through their interest and passion, and hopes to become a Physical Education teacher in the future.
