GOLD COAST NETBALL CARNIVAL

Our Gold Coast Rugby and Netball Carnivals have gained an enviable reputation over the last 30 years and we would be delighted to your team join us on the Coast in 2022 for our Gold Coast Football Carnival as part of the Gold Coast Games

 

The ethos of camaraderie and sportsmanship that has been built up at our events since its inception is quite unique and one of the main reasons for our continuing success.

There is no overall champion at our Carnival – instead one deserving group each year is presented with the coveted Spirit Award, decided on a vote of all participants: schools, clubs, referees and organisers.

 

There is also a Barbarian Award appointed to one player from each team.

The objectives of the Carnival are for players and officials to:

  • revel in the spirit of sport

  • enjoy a guaranteed number of matches without the pressure associated with school competitions

  • respect the time honoured ideals of amateur level sport

  • relish an opportunity to improve playing/coaching standards whilst enjoying a holiday at one of the world’s premier holiday destinations

 

Join us for a great week of Football mixed with

Sun, Surf and Sand

 

Come and test your skills against national and international teams whilst visiting Australia’s premier theme parks and world class beaches.
