The U23 Regionals event was held in Sydney on the March long weekend, and it was a great opportunity for the Youth of Australia to showcase their Korfball skills. The venue at Stanhope Gardens was excellent, and teams were accommodated a short 5 minute walk from the venue at the Gateway Holiday Park.
Two teams from South Australia competed against two teams from New South Wales. The South Australian players showed the experience during the first days play, but the skills level was increased and the level of play really gathered momentum when the four mixed teams were formed on day 2. Players from SA and NSW met and formed new friendships while playing in a highly competitive environment.
This event gave the Youth coaches an opportunity to identify talent, not just for the upcoming world championships, but for international tournaments in the future.
Many thanks to all who contributed for ensuring the events success.
