The composition of the Junior NPLWA for 2018 has been determined with clubs to compete in a dual model structure that delivers equal opportunity for all teams.
Under the new format, similar to that proposed in the independent NPLWA Review Report, clubs will be placed in three Conferences of approximately equal standard.
Teams will compete home and away against all opponents within their Conference before league standings are used to determine team-based Divisions for the second half of the season.
Under this model, teams from all age groups within a club will compete against the same opponent each weekend in the first half of the season (Conference). In the second half of the season, individual teams will be placed into one of four Divisions consisting of teams that have achieved similar results in the Conference stage.
The second half of the season will provide a greater challenge to higher performing teams and give less advanced teams opportunities to improve their performances.
