The team is a truly representative one, with players based in 2 continents, 3 countries, 3 Australian states, and representing 7 different clubs. Whilst this presents its challenges, this is a great sign for the ongoing development of Australian Korfball, and we look forward to more widespread representation as our newer regions and clubs continue to grow.

As a smaller sport, Korfball in Australia doesn’t receive any Government or other funding, and as such all training and tournament costs are borne by the players. Despite this, and with many opposing nations being funded, or even fully professional, Australia still ranks 10th in the world. In order to assist our players, and try and close the gap on the front running nations, Korfball Australia has launched a crowdfunding campaign. On this campaign, donors can donate to individual players, or the team as a whole. As an added bonus, any donations made by Australian tax-payers over $2 are tax deductible, thanks to our partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation.

The team is already training together at regular training camps, which will continue until they depart for South Africa.
