JSL Trials for Girls Born 2002-2009

JSL Trials 2019

Trials are being conducted for all girls wishing to be considered to play Junior State League (JSL) in season 2019/20 for the UWA Water Polo Club.

First Trial Date

Sunday, 11th August at UWA pool.

Second Trial Date

Sunday, 18th August at UWA pool.

Times as follows:

U14 Girls  Born 2006/2007/2008/2009 – 9am to 11am

U16&18 Girls Born 2002/2003/2004/2005 – 11am to 1pm


These are trials for any girl with an interest in playing water polo at a more competitive level over summer i.e. Sunday afternoon (B Division) or Monday night (A Division) Junior State League (JSL) Competition.  All girls interested will need to register for trials, even those who are already registered for the winter academy.  There is NO COST.

These trials will involve a core skills assessment and game play.

For those considered to meet the selection criteria, they will be allocated to the squad that will form the JSL teams for the 2019-2020.  These teams will be clarified by the middle of September based on the trials, and attitude and commitment at training.

For those needing further development, we will encourage them to be involved in the District Schools Competition for the summer season and attend the afternoon skills training programs.

Should there need to be further assessment sessions, these will be communicated individually.

These trials are the ONLY pathway to play JSL.  No girl will be considered for JSL if they have not attended the trials.
