To have an aligned competition focused on the holistic development of our players, coaches and umpires in line with the WHA Talent Framework. It must also encourage new to sport athletes and provide opportunity to all. To achieve this, we need meaningful grades where people can participate and develop at stages and levels appropriate to them.
Playing Days for 2021
Premier 1 & Premier 2 - Friday nights
Premier 3 - Thursday nights
Seven a side - Wednesday nights
Reserve 1 & 2 - Tuesday nights
In 2021 we have also introduced a 7 a side grade that will run all season. This grade is designed for the social or new to sport players. The 7 a side format will allow for more touches on the ball and greater involvement of all participants. This grade is played on Wednesday nights.

Reserve 1/2 - 17th May to 21st September
7 a side - 19th of May to 22nd September

Please not that week 9 (5th July), P1 games are played on Monday night. This means there is no training that night. This is due to the U18 tournaments happening the first week of the term two holidays.
