There are separate boys & girls competitions with multiple ability levels in each. Grading sessions are held by age group throughout Term 1 to determine the teams. The season comprises of 14 weeks of fixtures plus finals, except for 5/6's which do not have finals.

Junior Umpiring 

The Westside Wolves Junior Umpire Training Program is open to Junior players from Year 9. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for umpires of all levels to learn and develop umpiring skills from a beginner through to advanced senior level. Umpires involved in the program will receive theoretical training together with practical experience and mentoring throughout the hockey season. Westside Wolves are required to provide umpires across all junior grades, so the umpire program forms an integral and valued component of the club.

If you are interest in becoming an umpire please contact Jac's, Junior Umpire Co-Ordinator umpires@wolves.org.au  for more information.

Please note, we will be looking for a volunteer Junior Umpire Co-Ordinator for the 2025 season, as this will be Jac's year.  If you are interested in taking this rewarding Volunteer role on in 2025 give Jacs a call 0402 141 926 & have a chat.
