We are extremely excited to announce that InterVarsity Netball is back for 2019.

IV netball is a small knockout competition between the group of eight universities (Monash, the University of Melbourne, University of Sydney, QU, ANU and the University of Adelaide).

We are calling on Adelaide University students who are playing Premier League, Reserves or A grade netball to register and form the strongest possible team to compete against Melbourne University in round one, Friday 18th October. The game will be held in Melbourne with all expenses paid.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to compete on a National University level, with no associated costs or long terms commitments. So get involved!

Who is involved?

This competition is not linked to Netball SA or any other league. It is only open to university students and is organised solely by the Universities involved and endorsed by UniSport Australia. The Universtiy of Adelaide team is coordinated by AU Sport with the support of the AUNC, and other university departments. 
 
Only University of Adelaide students are eligible to be selected for the IV Netball team. It does not matter if you don't play for the Adelaide University Netball Club. If you play for other community clubs, we encourage you to be involved with this opportunity. Those who are playing SAIS athletes, State League, Reserves, A and B grade are strongly encouraged to register.

The Teams

This year, the University of Queensland, the University of Sydney, the University of Melbourne, Monash University, Australian National University and the University of Adelaide will battle it out for the Varsity Challenge Cup in a North/South Conference style competition. 

Training

Limited training will be held before the round one game at a location to be confirmed. Trainings will be used to select the best possible team for each game. These sessions will be led by the coach, team manager and the team’s leadership group.

Team Selection

The aim of team selection is to choose the strongest team possible for each game. As stated, the University of Adelaide IV Netball team is open to all University of Adelaide students and no bias is shown to those who play for the AUNC. 

A squad between 12 - 16 will be selected for the 2019 Varsity Cup Challenge and from the squad, a team of 10 - 12 will be selected for each game.  Those selected will be required to agree to AU Sport's Code of Conduct and will be provided with a (hire) uniform as well as a letter of leave from AU Sport that can be used to explain your absence from classes. 

Costs

There are no costs associated to those selected in the squad. All costs for travel, trainings and the games are covered by AU Sport. This is simply a fantastic opportunity to represent your university in a competitive, long running and exciting competition.

Like Josh, current IV Football Captain, Eddie Dadds says "Getting the unique chance to represent Adelaide University in a national intervarsity competition has been one of the highlights of my time studying. It's a high standard of competition, but most importantly, it gives you the chance to make a bunch of new mates. Make sure you get involved".
