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. 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.
Each year players are identified from the 15U and 17U teams at the annual Association Championship Tournament. They then attend a selection day later in the year (October) and a squad of 20 - 35 players are selected for the following year's Central East Talent Academy Program.
