From State Championships – Masters to Masters State Titles – why the change?
In 2018 McLaughlin Sports Consultancy completed a comprehensive Netball NSW Competitions and Events Framework Review.
Evidence was collected and analysed relating to the current relevance, effectiveness and sustainability of the NNSW Competitions, the Events Framework and its delivery.
It was determined the duplication of physical, financial and human resources required to manage 2 separate events, which align with the same elements of the National Player Pathway Framework, is not an effective use of NNSW resources.
It was recommended that the current State Championships – Masters and Social Masters events be combined. The State Masters Titles would be a Competition open to teams representing Associations, as well as a Social Competition open to teams not affiliated with a NSW Association.
Unlike the Senior and Junior State Titles, the smaller size of this event allows for this Competition to be hosted by a NSW Regional Association. There are many growing Associations in Regional NSW with indoor and outdoor Facilities of a standard to host the event.
