It’s that time of year again, when we gear up for Korfball South Australia’s annual one-day outdoor lightning carnival, the Summer Classic. Once again, the competition will be held at the Marion Sports & Community Club. A map of the venue location can be found on the Summer Classic event page. As previously indicated, the competition will be held on Saturday, the 27th of February, and games will kick off at 9:30am.
The competition is played on grass with standard Korfball rules (2 divisions, 8 players per team), but shortened matches. This is not explicitly a club based competition, although clubs are more than welcome to enter teams. Many clubs will use this event as part of State League pre-season, but non-club-based are encouraged to enter as well. Due to the unusual nature of the 2020 State League season our usual parity rule about only having 4 A graders on court at any one time will be expanded to 6 (based on finals qualification rules), although a team may contain additional players as substitutions. Team nominations are $50, no more to pay, and nominations and payments are due no later than February 19th. Once a team is nominated, payment details will be emailed to the designated contact person. A team nomination form is below. All players must be registered through the Korfball Australia Registration policy. The registration system can be found under the “Account” menu on the website.
Please note if clubs are entering more than one team, we do request you fill out a form for each team.
As has been the case in past years, a post-tournament dinner will be organised, with details to follow shortly.
If any teams, clubs or individuals are interested in running a BBQ or other food or drink stall, please advise on the form below. No alcohol may be sold or provided due to licencing restrictions. Any stall applications will be discussed by the KSA committee, and approval (or otherwise) given by February 21st. Stalls are the responsibility of the team/club/individual (organisation, risk management, financial etc), but may provide a fundraising opportunity for those interested.
We look forward to seeing you there and we look forward to announcing a number of additional KSA initiatives in the short term.
