Thanks to our wonderful NYC Coaching staff – Chrissy Bartlett, Meghan Ballon, Lorelle Sankey, Neil Ward, Dan O’Brien and Carene Ward for your time and effort in preparation for the tournament and looking after the teams whilst at Kawana. Thanks also to Referees Trevor Schelberg, Aaron Searston and Will Schatz for representing SWQ at the tournament.

In August, we were fortunate enough to take an incredibly talented bunch of U12, U14 and U16 players to Bundaberg for the Junior State Championships – what an amazing weekend!

We had some excellent results this year, with all 6 divisions finishing in the top 4, and South West Queensland finishing second overall.

A huge thank you to all of our affiliates, teams, players, coaches, managers, referees, parents and supporters for your efforts, and congratulations to all!
