competition details

The new format will continue in 2022 which will consist of two tiers of competition for nomination. The Champion Schools Trophy Competition will remain along with the Shield finals. Regional Pennants competitions will also continue in 2022.

Teams looking for a less competitive environment may wish to opt for the Regional Pennants competition which only run in Term 2. Locally nominated groups will compete in four Perth metropolitan regions (North West, North East, South West, South East) with a round robin group stage. If there are more than 2 groups per region then a play off final will occur. The winner of the group or the final will be declared Regional Champion.

Champion Schools will operate in group stages Term 2 with the top 16 boys teams and top 8 girls teams moving into the Champion Schools knockout rounds in Term 3. The remaining teams from the group stages will then move into the Shield knockout rounds in Term 3. There will be Grand Finals for both these competitions at the end of Term 3. Please note Specialist Schools ‘A’ teams will be included in group stages and no longer separated into a “top tier” group.

In summary:

Champions Schools Trophy: Teams placed into geographical groups of five or six in Term 2. The top 16 (girls top 8) based on group results will move the knockout round 1 in term 3 (e.g if 8 groups then top 2 from each group). Specialist schools ‘B’ teams included in group stages.

Champion Schools Shield: The remaining teams from Champions Schools groups move into the Shield knockout stage in Term 3.

Regional Pennants: Teams placed into regional groups of 4, 5 or 6during Term 2. The competition is a group stage only with finals if more than one group per region. Specialist schools ‘C’ and ‘D’ teams included.
