The Regional Academies of Sport in conjunction with event host, Hunter Academy of Sport, regret to advise that under the Australian Government COVID-19 directive restricting all public gatherings of more than 500 people, the 2020 Your Local Club Academy Games has been cancelled.
This includes the associated basketball tournament that had previously been moved to June.
The health and welfare of our athletes, families and staff is always our number one priority. Due to the escalating impact of the COVID-19 and the uncertainty surrounding the rapidly changing situation, the Regional Academies made the difficult collective decision to cancel its showcase annual event planned for the Hunter Region on April 3rd-5th 2020.
We would like to acknowledge our long-term partners, the Office of Sport and Your local club, for their continued support. Special thanks should also go to our regional partners for this year’s event including City of Newcastle Lake Macquarie City Council, Newcastle Herald and NBN Television.
We would like to take this opportunity to announce the dates for the 2021 and 2022 Your Local Club Academy Games;
• April 16-18th 2021 – Hunter Region
• April 8-10th 2022 – Host Region TBC.
