Emerging Jets take on the NTC Challenge in Canberra

July 21st, 2017

Eighteen Emerging Jets Girls have been selected in a team together to participate in the National Training Centre (NTC) Challenge at the Australian Institute of Sport next week in Canberra.

The NTC Challenge is a talent identification/selection opportunity of individual players for Junior National team representation, with the side made of players between the ages of 14-17 years of age.

Northern NSW Football’s (NNSWF) Emerging Jets Head of Skill Acquisition, Ryan Campbell, is excited about the opportunities this will bring for the girls both now and for the future.

“This is a great opportunity for the Northern NSW squad to showcase their talent in front of the Football Federation Australia (FFA) Technical Study Group who will be observing all matches,” Campbell said.

Throughout the week the girls will play a number of matches against different sides from around the country which will allow the coaching staff and players to benchmark their progress against other girls of a similar age from other States.

Campbell also said that he is looking forward to working with the girls throughout the week and seeing how they have improved.

“While winning is always important in matches, a major focus of this tournament is on individuals showcasing their abilities throughout the matches with the hope of in the future representing their country,” Campbell concluded.

Last year the Northern NSW squad came first in the Challenge and are hoping to get another great result this year.
