I would like to welcome all competitors, Team Managers, Parents, Umpires & Officials to the 2019 Australian Junior National Championships here at the Country Club Tasmania. 

As a past Junior Team Manager and JDO for SA 8 Ball I am proud to be at this years Australian Junior National Championships as the new Australian Junior Development Officer and look forward to the next week of Competition with Australia’s best Junior 8 ball players. 

The level of competition Junior 8 Ball Players bring to the sport continues to grow every day and I look forward to the continued growth of junior 8 ball in Australia for years to come. Our junior players are the future of our sport in this country. 

As Australian JDO my aim is to grow junior 8 ball even more in Australia by encouraging and supporting all current players and new comers to the sport. 

I would also like to remind everyone that this is still a sport, we are not playing for cattle stations. To all junior players, work hard, play smart and remember to have fun!
