ACNA Championships Cancelled for 2013 and 2014

South Australia has made the very hard decision to withdraw from the 2013 and 2014 Australasian Catholic Netball Championships. This decision has not been made lightly and was a result of discussions with both the SACSSGSA Executive Committee as well as the Catholic Education Office.

After consultation with Queensland and Victoria, we have all decided that sending teams away to Sydney would not be in our best interest. Due to new regulations in New South Wales this year this has resulted in the other states withdrawing due to insufficient information being given in a timely manner to secure the success of the week.

After much consultation with our Catholic Education Office, Executive Committee and my President we felt that it is in the best interests of our players, coaches and parents to withdraw from the Championships now.

We regret that this decision has had to be made but feel that it is the correct thing to do under the current circumstances.  We thank you for the time and effort that you have already put in to attend trials and training sessions and look forward to your continued support of the Championships in the future.
