CENTRAL EAST ZONE SELECTIONS:
The NV Talent Academy Program is a pathway for young 15U and 17U players to receive specialised coaching sessions in an environment that promotes excellence and supports challenge and achievement.
Each year (May / June) players are identified from the 15U and 17U teams at the annual Association Championship Tournament. They are invited to attend a Talent Academy Selection day later in the year (October) and a squad of 20 - 35 players are selected for the following year's Central East Zone Talent Academy Program.
There are a total of 6 Zones across Victoria, each with it's own Talent Academy. They compete against each other at the Inter-Academy tournament in October / November each year where players are nominated for 17U State Team selections.
