“The highlights for me was playing against all the other states and seeing great talent across Australia. I gained new skills from the tournament and different knowledge of the game. My advice to other sporting participants competing in a national tournament is to go hard, gain new friendships, learn as much as you can and no matter what happens do your best and be proud of yourself… and never give up.”
Jenny, (Team Vic player)

“Attending the national championships was a fabulous experience for both Geoff and myself. Receiving the extra financial support made things a lot easier. It was fantastic to see the enjoyment that Geoff experienced from representing his state and being a part of a team. I believe it hasreally helped Geoff to develop his leadership skills and his ability to work in a team situation. Thank you for making this scholarship available”
