What is the Commitment Expected for players to play WABL?

WABL is a representative competition where players are selected over others. If selected in a WABL team, players are expected to honour that selection and prioritise their WABL commitments over their commitment to other sports. Players are expected to attend every training session and every game, even if injured.

State Championship Team Selection – This selection and also the State Championship tournaments will be used to select our WABL teams for 2024. Trials are held in October and the  tournaments are in Nov/Dec depending on the age group/division.

The WABL pre-season  starts in early February with one session per week. All players are expected to attend all training sessions without exception.

The WABL grading tournaments are held at the end of February/early March. The grading tournaments for most age groups are held on two days over consecutive weekends. (i.e. Saturday on weekend 1, Sunday on weekend 2.)

At the completion of the WABL grading tournaments, all teams continue to train once a week, normally on a Thursday.

The WABL regular season starts on April 20th 2024. One game per week is played every Sunday for 18 weeks (with a one week break during the July school holidays).

WABL finals  run for three weeks after the regular season concludes.

In summary, the time commitment for WABL is significant
