17U and 19U State Teams

SA the Champion State

Our South Australian 17U and 19U state teams have seen incredible success over the past years at the National Netball Championships.

The 17U State team brought home gold at the 2024 Netball National Championships after after defeating Western Australia in the grand final 30 - 28. The side held a prefect record  by going through the entire tournament undefeated.  

Our under 19s went into the tournament as the defending champions however this year they finished in 5th place just falling short to Tasmania in their final match. 

Our underage state teams provide a wonderful opportunity for the best of the state’s emerging talent to develop and showcase their skills on the national stage.
