AMI NORTH HARBOUR NETBALL: News
Future Stars Shine
Up and coming young North Harbour netball players are currently competing in local representative tournaments in preparation for the coming New Zealand Age Group Championships.
AMI Netball North Harbour hosted 102 teams aged from Year 7 to Under 23 in our annual representative tournament on a beautiful winter day with teams travelling from as far afield as Maunganui and Christchurch. On show, was the future of netball not only in North Harbour but across New Zealand with both players and umpires putting their best efforts on display.
The Netball North Harbour teams performed well with a number of teams making their respective semi finals and the Under 15 team, under the leadership of Coach Tania Flavell, winning their age group in a tightly fought final.
In the July school holidays the Under 15 and Year 9 team will travel to New Plymouth for the North Island Under 15 tournament, the Under 19 will travel to Dunedin for the Netball New Zealand Age Group Championships and the Under 17 New Zealand Age Group Championships are being hosted at Netball North Harbour for the first time in many years. Thirty nine teams from across New Zealand will compete at the AMI Netball Centre, North Harbour from 14th – 17th July striving to be named national champions for 2014.
Two young umpires from North Harbour, Josh Tupene-Delamere and Cory Nicholls, have been appointed to officiate at the NZ Under 17 tournament, a huge achievement for them both and a further highlight for Cory who has also recently been awarded his NZC Umpires Award. Well done to you both.
