Recently a U19 regional development and selection day was hosted at Avondale College in Auckland.
Thank you to all those players who made it out the the Regional Development Day – it was a fantastic day and all participants did extremely well. The coaches and selectors were very impressed with the general skill level, and the focus that was shown throughout the day.
Two teams have been selected from the Northern region to compete at the NZU National Youth Championships in Taupo on February 18-19. These players will also now qualify to be considered for selection with the NZU World’s Teams to compete in Dublin in 2012. Selections for the NZ National Teams will take place at the tournament in Taupo in February.
Congratulations to the following:
Northern Regional U19 Girls Team
Min Lee Ting
Northern Regional U19 Boys Team
Ru-Yang (Ru) Tan
Northern Regional Players selected for the Wellington Regional U19 boys team*
Notes on Selections:
*Two players from Whangarei have been selected for the Wellington Regional team. The reason for this is to ensure both Northern and Southern teams have enough players for the tournament. In addition, these two players are intending on studying at Victoria University in 2012, and this will provide them an opportunity to meet players from the region they will be moving too. Lastly, this allows the selectors to involve more players from the Northern Region to give them a chance to see more of these players before selecting the World’s team in Taupo.
