IMPORTANT information

Please read all information prior to nominating for trials below

School Sport Australia has rescheduled all National Championships to the 2nd half of 2022, in the hope that students will be permitted to travel to these events.

Should students not be permitted to travel interstate, School Sport WA will once again plan to provide State Team Experiences, within state borders.

Following the selection of teams, details of the 2022 program will be provided at the 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.

In 2009 the first 16 years and under Girls Invitational competition was played between Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia in Maroochydore Queensland. Won by Western Australia.

2011 saw the Inaugural School Sport Australia Girls 16 years and under Championship held in Canberra, ACT with five member bodies represented and an invitational team from AFL NSW/ACT. The Girls Championship was won by Victoria.

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.
