2024 Junior Country Championships Preview

Published Thu 09 May 2024

The Junior Country Championships are set to take place on the 18th & 19th May, with an incredible 48 regional teams participating this year.   

All teams will play a series of round robin matches across the course of the weekend, before it all culminates on the Sunday afternoon with the Gold Medal Matches.

The Event will be held across three dual pitch venues, with Greensborough, Essendon and State Hockey Centre playing host in 2024. A huge thank you to the three host venues for their work in preparing for the Event.
