Inter-state Challenge Cup 2018

The Heathmont Jets Junior Football Club is excited to announce that the Club has formed a partnership with the South Launceston Junior Football Club which will see the two clubs compete in what we hope will be become an annual Inter-State Challenge Cup match.

The partnership between the two clubs will provide the opportunity for players from each club to travel inter-state each second year to play against one another.

In 2018 the plan is for the Heathmont Jets Youth Boys (our Under 14 and Under 13 age group boys) to travel to Tassie to compete against the South Launceston Under 14’s in the inaugural Challenge Cup Match. Future plans in the coming years will also see the opportunity for our Youth Girls (Under 14’s and Under 16’s) to be involved in this exciting opportunity.

Initial planning for the Jets trip to Launceston next year is that this will be a three-day trip taking place during the second week of the school holiday period in July (Tuesday 10th to Thursday 12th July), with Jets players being home-stayed with players and families from the South-Launceston JFC. Heathmont Jets Club officials and chaperones (interested parents) would stay in motel/hotel accommodation (see the section on Timing of the Trip for further details about when this proposed trip will take place).

ITINERARY A possible three-day itinerary might look something like the following:

Day 1:

  • Morning - Jets travel to Launceston
