2012 NZ Congress
Expressions of interest are sought from eligible Australian youth pairs to play in the New Zealand National Congress commencing Saturday 29 September 2012 and to contest a match against the New Zealand Youth Team on Friday 5 October 2012 and Saturday 6 October 2012.
An airfare subsidy of up to $400 per player will be made available from the Friends of Youth Bridge Fund. It is likely, but not assured, that local billeting will be available and the hosts will use their best endeavours to arrange transport to and from Auckland Airport to the venue in Hamilton.
A 50% discount on entry fees to the congress events will apply. The hosts have also offered complimentary tickets to the Australian team for the Victory Dinner on Saturday 6 October 2012.
To be eligible you must be a bona fide resident of Australia born on or after 1 January 1988 and an ABF member in good standing.
Expressions of interests will be promptly considered by the ABF Youth Committee which will ratify a team of four for this event. A strong preference will be given to partnerships intending to trial for Australian representative teams in 2013.
If you are interested in playing, please respond no later than Friday 17 August 2012 with the following information:
1. Your name and your proposed partner.
If you have any queries in relation to the foregoing or require any additional information, please contact the National Youth Coordinator, David Thompson ( ) , to whom expressions of interest should be sent.
