Development of the National Youth League began in 1984. First, the teams formed by compatriots were played: Croatians, Macedonians, Italians, Greeks, Hungarians… Sydney Croatia (Babic, Kalic, Milic, Moriv, ​​Popovic), Preston Macedonia (Lozanovski, Markowski, Spzevski), Stoychevsky, Tryonowski, Trapovski ), Melbourne Croatia (Viduka, Silvik, Horvat, Zurich), Perth Italy (Carbone, Matasa), Greece West Adelaide Hellas and South Melbourne Hellas, Hungarian Sao George. This Australian football was similar to Soviet football.

Seven years later, in 1991, Australia finished fourth at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Portugal.

Advances in basketball, especially among women, can be explained by studying at the Sports Institute. The team was formed in 1981, the first year of operation of the institute. The national championship was made simultaneously. Initially, the institute’s team played the role of “winning the girls” as the athletes were very young. But when Australia won a gold medal at the World Championships for the first time in its history in 1994, its team included students from the institute: Carla Boyd, Michelle Brogan, Sandy Brondello, Fiona Robinson, Shelley Sandy, Jelly Whitley, Michelle Chandler. In addition, the institute made students, generously handing them over to rival teams, for which they only won the first goal of the National Championship in 1999, Kristen Will, Lauren Jackson, Belinda Snell, Penny Taylor and Suzy, 19 years old. Butkovic. She was just a student and later went on to become a star in women’s basketball worldwide.
