The 2019 Your Local Club Academy Games was held across the Hunter region from Friday 12th – Sunday 14th April 2019, hosted for the second of three years by the Hunter Academy of Sport. The games showcased the state’s best emerging athletes across eight sports including AFL, Basketball, Golf, Hockey, Netball, Tennis, Softball and Triathlon.

Over 4000 athletes, supporters, staff, volunteers and coaches attended the 2019 Your Local Club Academy Games at eight Hunter venues across the weekend.

The Hunter region has some outstanding venues used at the Your Local Club Academy Games. In 2019 the event showcased the importance of quality venues and supportive local staff to make the games operate smoothly. The venues used were all great, and the coverage across the region was also very important due to the level of support by the City of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie City Council. The versatile nature of the Hunter region allowed the sports to be played across multiple LGA’s including Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens and Maitland.

The support from ALL regional academies is also essential for putting on this event. To all eleven NSW Regional Academies – we thank you for your support for the Games and to the ethos of competition. Thankyou also to the Metropolitan Softball teams, the Independent Netball Teams, Wheelchair Sports NSW and Independent AFLW teams for your support at the Games.
