Around 60 junior brigade teams, including two teams from Western Australia gave it their all during the successful 2020 State Urban Junior Championships event in Horsham on the weekend.

Junior Urban Championships a hit at Horsham

A strong crowd turned out to support the contingent of talented under-14 and under-17 teams for the 47th State Urban Junior Championships, which ran on both Saturday, 22 February and Sunday, 23 February.

Participants showcased their teamwork skills in a series of events which involved coupling and uncoupling hoses, setting hydrants and fixing branches as fast as they could.

The event helps junior members develop leadership and teamwork skills, which are not only transferrable to their future involvement with the CFA, but in other areas of life.

From inception the Championships were a way for brigades to demonstrate their skills to the Victorian communities as well as improve their operational skills and capability.

Western Australian team Harvey A were one of two interstate teams invited to compete at last weekend’s event and were crowned Grand Aggregate winners.

The countdown is now on in anticipation for next month’s inaugural CFA-VFBV Firefighter State Championships at Mooroopna.

This year, the Rural Senior and Junior Championships and Urban Senior Championships will be held together for the first time in a celebration of CFA, with families and the wider community invited to attend.
