Schools Cup officially underway for 2015

The 2015 Netball NSW Schools Cup competition officially began last week with North Coast hosting their first two Local Days on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 March.

In the North Coast region a record 93 local school teams have registered for the 2015 competition; Coffs Harbour (16 teams) and Macleay (23 teams) participated in their local days last week, while Port Macquarie (26 teams) and Taree (28 teams) to contest their Local Days this Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 March, respectively.

Frank Partridge VC Public, Bishop Druitt College, Dorrigo High, Crescent Head Public, St Patrick’s Primary, Nambucca High and Kempsey High are the first schools to progress through to a Regional Final, having contested strongly at their Local Days.

South Coast will also hold their first Local Day of the season this week with 35 local schools registered for the Shoalhaven competition this Thursday 26 March at the Park Road Netball Complex in Nowra.

The Netball NSW Schools Cup is an initiative by Netball NSW to provide New South Wales primary and secondary school students from public, independent and Catholic systems in Years Five, Six, Seven and Eight with the opportunity to enjoy netball in a fun and safe environment.

School teams compete in round robin carnivals in their local area called “Schools Cup Local Days” from March – August, with overall winners from each “Local Day” progressing to a Schools Cup “Regional Final”.

Victorious teams from Regional Finals will advance to the Netball NSW Schools Cup State Final, to be held at the new home of Netball NSW on Tuesday 15 September, 2015 at Netball Central, Sydney Olympic Park.

In 2014, we had an enormous 319 schools from all over NSW entering teams, with 5,480 participants compete in the competition! The division winners for the 2014 Schools Cup State Final can be viewed here.

Registrations are still open for Local Days in the Sydney Metropolitan, Hunter, West/Central West, Far North Coast, South Coast, Northern Inland, and Riverina regions – check out the complete list below with closing dates for detailed information.

The 2015 Netball NSW Schools Cup is proudly supported by our Official Charity Partner The Kids’ Cancer Project.
