Details you need to be aware of:

1. Selection Policy

The WPWA selection policy is attached for reference

WPWAI Selection Policy State Teams

Please note that it is currently proposed to send two 15U Male teams, however this is subject to nomination numbers and the ability to field two competitive teams. WPWAI will only send a development team if it is felt it will be competitive in the National Championships and offer a good development opportunity for players. The teams are not Conference based or age cohort based.  

2. Selection Trial Dates

1. Saturday 23 July 2022 Bicton Pool 2.30-4pm - athletes to arrive 30 minutes before stated start time for briefing and warmup

2. Sunday 31st July 2022 Bicton Pool 12-1.30pm - athletes to arrive 30 minutes before stated start time for briefing and warmup

It is an expectation that members attend all selection trials to allow coaches and the Independent selection panel the greatest opportunity to assess capability and fit within a team.

If you are unable to attend all selection trials this will need to be discussed with the Coach.


3. Training Expectation Term 3

It is expected that players who nominate for State teams undertake 2-3 swim sessions and 3-4 water polo sessions a week in Term 3 unless extenuating circumstances that should be discussed with the Coach/Manager.

4. Uniform requirements

Post trials all squad members will be expected to purchase the following State Uniform items:

Bathers 

Tshirt

Shorts

(Total cost $125)

An online ordering system will be available post trials, final date TBA.

Samples of bathers, shirts and shorts will be available at Selection Trials for sizing.

The final State Team players will also be required to purchase:

Hoodie

Backpack

(Total cost $145)

WPWA will be seeking sponsorship to underwrite the cost of State Uniform , however sponsorship is not guaranteed at this stage.

There will also be opportunities for supporters to purchase uniform items.

The design of the bathers and shirts is the same as last season with the removal of the term "Squad", the hoodie and backpack incorporate the WPWA logo.

5. Approximate costings

Current estimates for flights, accommodation, land transport and nomination for the Championships are approximately $2800-$3000. This will vary according to venue and numbers attending.

We are endeavouring to minimise costs. State team representation is conducted on a cost recovery only basis by WPWA.  The costs of Coach and Manager are covered by the team.

Timing of payments will be advised.
