September – final call for NSW Seniors for Nationals

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

Senior Nationals squads are underway for the upcoming Nationals October 5-8 being held in Sydney.

Interested players who haven’t yet made contact with the coaches re: training sessions, please do so quickly as we have uniforms and other logistics to arrange.

Players are eligible for selection if they’ve played 5 games in the last 12 months and made themselves available to trial. Given it’s been a sparse couple of seasons, if you’re a regular player who hasn’t met these requirements, please do talk to the coaches and seek an exemption.

Some States are seeking players to support their squads and NSW wants to support these. NSW requires players planning to do this to trial for NSW first so please also be in contact so we can let any other States needing support know.

Contact us via the New South Wales Handball Facebook page.
