What is State Age?

The Netball NSW State Age Championships, one of the largest female sporting events in the Southern Hemisphere, was originally known as the ‘Junior District Carnival’, a day-long carnival which was first held on Sunday 14 July, 1968 at Moore Park (now recognised as City of Sydney Netball Association).

Forty-four teams representing 10 Associations contested in five age-groups during the inaugural tournament; 14 Years, 13 Years, 12 Years, 11 Years and 10 Years.  Manly-Warringah and Sutherland Shire dominated the winners’ list for the first championships, with Manly taking out three (13 Years, 11 Years, 10 Years) and Sutherland taking home two titles (14 Years, 12 Years).

In 1969, the Netball NSW State Age Championships came into being for the 15U, 14U, 13U, 12U and 11U year age groups and as the years rolled on, the number of entries grew to such an extent that it became necessary to contest over a two day period to enable each Association to play one another.  As team numbers continued to increase, the Championships expanded to include a third day.

In 1983, the decision was made to introduce a second division in each age group, and two years later the competition was re-structured, settling on ages groups for 15U, 14U, 13U and 12U. Since this time, the competition has continued to grow, to include four divisions of competition in each of the age groups.

The competition is so large now, that no single Association has the court, venue space and facilities to host all four divisions and age groups by itself! Therefore, multiple Associations are used simultaneously to host the event, which is an incredible effort from our fantastic volunteer-powered Associations.
