Flames Player Registrations

We have changed our process for registration and trials. Registrations are open to all players who are interested in participating in the 2017 BWA State Championships and 2018 WABL Competition.

Registration and payments will now be completed online via the portal on the Flames Website:

  • Portal Opens - Friday 29th September 2017
  • Portal Closes - Friday 20th October 2017.

All players registering from other associations who played WABL for the 2017 season are required to fill out a “Player Clearance Form." This can be found attached below.

Note: The BWA player clearance form now comes with a transfer fee which is paid directly to BWA.


 How to Register

Please register to trial through the following link. 

NOTE: To complete the registration process you will be required to pay the trial fee online which is found at the end of the registration form. 




Team selections this year will have WABL Grading 2018 in mind. If you are interested in playing in the WABL next year, we strongly recommend that you trial for State Championships 2017.

Making a team is never guaranteed, but for those not trialing for State Championships, WABL placements may be limited or unavailable in 2018.

Trials begin on:

  • Monday 16th October 2017

Please read the below PDF files for information on the training times/ court layout and requirements. More information will be communicated at the first training session.
