Junior Regionals 2008

Following on from a successful NTL by the Sydney Scorpions Open’s and Seniors teams, it has been the junior teams that have really put the Sydney Scorpions on the map. At the recent NSWTA 14’s/16’s Regionals held in Forster on the weekend of 29th and 30th March, Sydney Scorpions were named as the Champion Junior Permit in NSW, thanks to the efforts of players, coaches and managers of all 4 teams. After an encouraging Junior State Cup in Wollongong by all affiliates within the Scorpions region, selectors had a difficult task in choosing players to represent Sydney Scorpions at the 14’s/16’s Regional Championships. Those selections were vindicated with all 4 Scorpions teams making the semi finals, with 2 teams (Boy’s 14’s and Boy’s 16’s) taking out the titles on offer and the Girl’s 14’s falling just short in the final. The coaches, managers and support staff had a huge task in moulding those players selected, into competitive teams in the short time frame between JSC and the Regional Championships, and what a job they did! The success of all 4 teams is a true indication of the efforts of the coaches, and also reflects on the tremendous job that the Scorpions Junior committee is doing with the juniors in our region. And the players, what can you say. Their behaviour, off field dress and playing gear, were the envy of the other permits and was backed up on the fields of play with some amazing skills on show. It made all involved, very proud to be associated with such a group of fine young people.
