2017/2018 Girls Premier League (GPL)

WBA is establishing a new competition for girls aged 12-15 years called the Girls Premier League (GPL). This competition is being trialed in response to the demand from our stakeholders for a competition format that builds an experience for our girls, whether from schools, clubs or other associations, at a level where the players are challenged to play at their best but also helps with their development to become better ballers

The GPL is designed and delivered by WBA because they recognise not enough is done to keep our girls engaged in this great game. It is also an opportunity to attract other interested girls into the game. We hope you can get behind this initiative to help WBA promote the girls game.

Before you confirm your teams participation – the following conditions must be met

  • Your team will need to be competitive because you are playing amongst some of Wellingtons top players at this age group, this is not a social league. 
  • You have confirmed a payment arrangement with WBA before the GPL starts
  • Dress code – uniforms with numbers must be worn and mouth guards are required
  • You will need to provide a person for bench
  • Games will be played on a Thursday at 6pm and 7pm so please ensure you have sufficient players to front every Thursday
  • Players can only play for one team
  • Players must be aged 12 to 15 years of age (DOB of player maybe requested)
  • You are aware Glory Leagues will be operational

A reminder that, as for all leagues, WBA expects positive conduct from coaches, players and spectators at all times. WBA want to create an environment and experience where our girls can grow in the game and that we promote growth of girls in the game.

WBA will have no problem of enforcing any penalties down on coaches, spectators and teams if the spirit of the game is being compromised. 

All games are played at the ASB Sports Centre, 72 Kemp Street Kilbirnie.
