Hunter gets set for Schools Cup

2014 Netball NSW Schools Cup gets underway in the Hunter next week with the first two Local Days being held back-to-back on Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 June.

The action begins at Charlestown on Tuesday with 19 local schools contesting three age divisions – Years 5/6, Years 7/8 Girls and Years 7/8 Boys. Then it will be Newcastle’s turn to host 10 local schools on the Wednesday, while two more Local Days will be contested in July before teams will advance to the Regional Final.

Every team is looking for the chance to move forward to the Hunter Regional Final, being held on Tuesday 12 August at Maitland Netball Association, where they will be vying to finish Regional Champions in the hope to represent Northern Inland at the Schools Cup State Final on Tuesday 16 September at the Anne Clark Centre.

After the success of its inaugural competition in 2013, the Netball NSW Schools Cup is back in 2014 and proudly supported by our Official Charity Partner The Kids’ Cancer Project.

The competition attracts Government, Catholic and Independent school teams from around the State to participate in the following divisions, with this season seeing the introduction of both a girls and boys secondary school division.

• Senior (Years 5 & 6) Mixed

• Junior (Years 7 & 8) Girls
• Junior (Years 7 & 8) Boys

Good luck to all the teams that will contest the Hunter Local Days, starting next week!
