North East Blaze is one of twelve clubs that compete in the Victorian Netball League (VNL). VNL is a vital step in the Netball Victoria Pathway, encompassing high level athletes, coaches, umpires and officials.
It is the underpinning competition for the Australian Netball Championships and the Suncorp Super Netball competition.
There is a very strong connection between our two organisations. 14 players from Outer East FN clubs will represent North East Blaze in 2024. Head Coach Kate Upton and 23&U Coach Ella Bayliss both have long associations with our competitions, both as players and coaches.
This partnership will provide the opportunity for Outer East FN Club coaches and players alike the opportunity to experience high performance training environments and junior players to be able to attend clinics run by NE Blaze during the season.
Outer East FN logos will appear on the back of all North East Blaze dresses and staff uniforms for the 2024 season.
Both Outer East FN and North East Blaze NC see this as a great opportunity to ensure continual growth and development of netball in our region. North East Blaze NC are very excited to welcome Outer East Football Netball as a community partner for the 2024 season.
