Four reps lining up for titles

FOUR Tweed representative teams will be shooting high at Netball Queensland's State Age Championships this weekend.

More than 1600 of the state's finest young athletes will converge on the Sunshine Coast for the three-day event, with 169 teams from around the state vying for the prestigious titles.

Tweed's under-13, 14s, 15s and combined 16/17s will share the court with some of the best sporting and coaching talent Queensland has to offer.

“This is the business end of the rep season,” Tweed Netball's Helen Rigney said.

“Good luck to all teams and coaches.

“Enjoy the competition.”

The championships are widely recognised as Netball Queensland's largest mass participation event of the year and as a critical pathway for developing athletes, coaches and umpires in Queensland.

“The championship plays an important role in the development of Queensland's future athletes, both on a social/participation level and developmental level,” NQ's Cameron O'Hara said.

The opening ceremony will be held on Saturday from 7.50am. Queensland Firebirds players will also be in attendance to lend their support to the state's next generation of champions.
