2019 Nissan 16U State Titles

Team Lists are available here: 16U Team Lists

Purpose and background

The purpose of the Emerging Talent Program (ETP) is to identify and develop players, coaches, umpires and selectors across Queensland to improve the depth of talent across all areas of the game.  Netball Queensland run 1 – 2 day ETP clinics across 12 regions twice a year.

Following the completion of the Phase 2 Clinics, 16U Teams will be selected from each region to compete in the Nissan 16U State Titles.  This is to provide an opportunity for the best players (aged 15 – 16) to compete against each other in a high quality competition.  This event also provides development opportunities for the appointed coaches, managers and umpires. The QLD 17U Squad for the following year will be selected and announced at the end of this event.  Importantly, this competition also serves as a transition point from Association based netball (State Age, QPL) into regional representative netball aligned with Sapphire Series licensees to assist in optimising the transition rates into the State League competition.

Emerging Talent Program (ETP): The name given to the overall program which consists of 24 clinics delivered across Queensland. Importantly the term “Talent” within the Emerging Talent Program title, refers to players, coaches, umpires and selectors.

16U & 18U State Titles: In 2019 the 16U State Titles will follow the same format as in 2018, and the 18U State Titles will replace the 2018 City v Country Series.

Queensland 17U and 19U Training Squads:  will be the group of approximately 25-30 players chosen (in each squad) following the 16U and 18U State Titles. These two squads will attend training camps in early 2020 to assist in the final selection of 17U and 19U Queensland teams for the 2020 National Netball Championships.

Emerging Talent Program Coordinators (ETPC): Persons appointed to assist in the coordination of the Emerging Talent clinics around Queensland.

Talent: is defined as those players, coaches and umpires who demonstrate the potential for higher honours not only through their current level of performance, but also their willingness to take on board feedback, self-awareness and commitment to their own development.
