GRAFTON Netball Association will field teams in all four age groups at the State Age Championships, starting on Saturday, June 30 and concluding on Monday, July 2.

Taking the court in Division Two at Gosford will be Grafton's 14/U team, while the 15/U, 13/U and 12/U teams will compete at Lakeside in Division Three.

Altogether 305 teams will converge on Wyong (Championship Division), Gosford (Division Two), Lakeside (Division Three) and Charlestown (Division Four) for the three-day competition, which is one of the biggest sporting events in the southern hemisphere.

The State Age Championships, with charity partner The Kids Cancer Project, are one of Netball New South Wales' marquee events. They will feature more than 3600 participants from 86 associations.

Held during the winter school holiday period, the championships bring together the best young netball talent from across the state in three days of competition.

The event will culminate in the crowning of the state champions.

The championships will showcase the future stars of Australia's number one female participation sport, netball.
