Hunter gets ready to contest Schools Cup

Schools Cup action returns to the Hunter region for the first time in 2015 when Newcastle hosts the first Local day tomorrow, Wednesday 15 July.

Schools from around the greater Newcastle area will come together at Newcastle Netball Association looking to advance to the Regional Final on Wednesday 5 August in Maitland. Teams will be divided into three age-divisions: Years 5/6 Mixed, Years 7/8 Girls and Years 7/8 Boys.

Following Newcastle, Singleton will hold its Local Day on Thursday 16 July before Charlestown and Gosford get underway next week.

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.

Netball NSW is pleased to have The Kids’ Cancer Project on-board again in 2015 as the Official Charity Partner of the Schools Cup competition.

Good luck to all Hunter Schools participating in this year’s Schools Cup!
