IMPORTANT information

Please read all information prior to nominating for trials below

School Sport WA team officials are planning to provide State Team Experiences with selected state teams within state borders.

This is in response to the School Sport Australia Championships not proceeding in 2021. 

Open trials will be held for all teams, with regular selections occurring throughout trials and training.

Details of State Team Experiences will be provided to selected state team members at their Parent Information session.

SSWA and School Sport Australia (SSA) wishes to advise that the age group of the SSA Australian Football Boys and Girls Championships for the older age group will revert back to 15 Years & Under for the 2021 SSA Championships and onwards.

The decision has been made after consultation with the Australian Football League (AFL) and School Sport Australia’s member bodies.

The National Schoolboy Championships were inaugurated in Melbourne in 1923. Western Australia  entered for the first time in 1925.  Western Australia did not participate from 1998 to 2000. There have been two breaks in the competition continuity with an outbreak of infantile paralysis in 1937 and the Second World War the reasons.  The carnival has continued unbroken since 1947.

A full history of the Championships can be found on the School Sport Austalia website at 

WA teams’ results and history can be found on this page along with current selection policy.

The cost of a HOME CHAMPIONSHIP will be approximately $800 – $1500 depending on the accommodation option.
