2016 Disney International Youth Netball Tournament

November 1st, 2016

Netball Alberta is proud of the performance of our U16 representative team, that competed in the 2016 Disney International Youth Tournament! The team trained hard and played with speed, grace and determination during the tournament held October 25-30, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.

In this exciting international tournament, teams from South Africa, England, the US, and Australia competed. The event began with a round robin and Team Alberta won two games and lost some close games. Then the Finals round began and they played all the teams again. These were extremely fast and intense games. For the finals, three teams were tied for 6th, and in the end the Alberta Team placed 7th. These young ladies always played their heart out in every game and they were amazing games to watch.

Special thanks to their coaches, Sharlee Rose and Stephanie Duursema, their Team Manager Sharon Mascher, Team Parent Asra Matchett and our physio, Rachel Tran. The team's dream support team!

This was a successful and memorable event for our young players and we look forward the next Disney International Youth Tournament!
