SUMMER SEASON 2017-2018 Can everyone please check the website for team changes and the fixture for times before their game each week. As we endeavour to make the competition as even as possible there will be changes within the first few weeks of play. Your coach/age delegate should contact you if the changes concern yourself. Great app to download "Game Day", to keep track of teams, draws etc. Just enter competition first (WABA), then age group, then your specific team. Any changes to the draw will be reflected in the app.
