2019 Junior State Championships Preview

Share this article

The 2019 Junior State Championships are about to get underway!

With 57 teams competing in this year’s event, we will see over 900 of Victoria’s most talented junior Hockey players travel from far and wide to compete at the State Netball Hockey Centre and Hawthorn Malvern Hockey Centre from 2nd July – 5th July.

It is a fantastic opportunity for players from both regional and metropolitan Victoria to play with and against some of the best Hockey players our State has. It also provides incredibly valuable experience for approximately 120 Coaches, who have been responsible for preparing the teams for the event and now guiding them through four days of competition.

Hockey Victoria would like to wish all the players, Coaches, Team Tanagers and Zone Coordinators all the best for the Event, we hope it is thoroughly enjoyable!

A huge good luck to our team of officials that make this event possible, with a total of just over 75 Umpires, Technical Officials, Umpire Coaches, Umpire Managers and Tournament Directors involved.
