This brings our 2015 competition season to an end with a great momentum into 2016.
2016 is going to be a great year, with Oceania Championship taking place in April in Canberra, and the National Titles in Geelong over the long weekend in June.
All the under 12 and older (and the under 9 that have crossed over) that have competed the State Titles are now able to qualify to the Nationals next year.
JVI has announced they will lower the criteria for qualifying in order to present a large team at the Nationals.
The criteria is State Titles 2015, 50% Squad training attendance and competing in 1 more state tournament.
Well done everyone!
