National Youth Championship Representatives
The 2013 NYC (National Youth Championships) Touch Tournament will be held from Wednesday 11th September to Saturday 14th September at Stocklands Park, Caloundra on the QLD Sunshine Coast. Four members from the Berkeley Vale Junior Touch Association will be representing the NSWCHS Open Girls Team at this event. Isabelle Kelly and Madi Crowe will be representing their State for the first time at NSWCHS Open level whilst Kirra Dibb and Shannon Rose will be competing for the NSWCHS team for the second time. QLD narrowly defeated NSWCHS in the final in 2012 but NSWCHS has had two very successful tours to the Sunshine Coast in 2010 and 2011, winning both championships. They will be hoping to emulate this when they return next week.
The girls have all been extremely committed to the team and their training, spending four days in the school holidays at Nelson Bay for a training camp and having three weekend sessions over the past 6 weeks. They will play eight 40 minute round games in three days and the semi-finals and finals are held on the Saturday. we are very proud of the girls and wish them the very best of luck.
Edith Nathan one of our Junior coaches is coaching the State Development Team which has another Berkeley Vale Junior Laura Knight in the side.
Good luck to everyone.
