Our RMA Junior Cobras teams were in action across the long weekend as they competed in the annual – and scorching hot – Eltham-Dandenong Tournament.
Following the lengthy Christmas break, the Australia Day tournament traditionally serves as a team bonding weekend and an opportunity to shake off the rust as teams head into into the second phase of VJBL grading, which tips-off on Friday February 2. But despite the long layoff and some gruelling physical conditions, our Cobras flourished over the course of the four day tournament, with six teams taking home championships and eight teams making grand final appearances.
The U12/2, U12/3, U12/4, and U14/4 Girls and U12/2 and U14/3 Boys all took home Championships, while the U16/2 and U16/3 Girls finished as runners-up in their respective divisions.
Congratulations to all of our Junior Cobras teams which competed over the weekend and good luck for the second phase of grading.
