2024 State Teeball Championships

Saturday 11 November 3:00pm to 5:00pm, and
Monday 13 November 2023 5:00pm to 6:30pm

State Championships: Friday 2 March to Monday 4 March 2023

The TBAWA Tee-Ball State Championships is a competition open to all tee-ball clubs in WA. The State Championships were first played in the 1974-75 season, and are now played over the March long weekend. It is traditionally held at Langley Park, represented by about 30 clubs from metropolitan and country regions.

Teams play across five age groups, with divisions within each age group. Teams will typically play five 1-hour games over the long weekend, with a Gold, Silver and Bronze medal awarded to Division 1 teams, and a Gold medal awarded to other lower winning division teams.

Subject to available player numbers, Carine will offer team selection for the following divisions: U9, U10, U11, U12 and U13s. Both boys and girls are actively encouraged to trial.

TBAWA is also looking for expressions of interest for all-girls teams to compete in U9, U11 and U13 State Championships competitions. Carine aims to nominate teams in all three age groups.

Additional information about our States campaign can be found in our State Championships Handbook (under Documents and Links). More generic information is also available on the TBAWA Website.

Selection Process

Selection Policy

Carine Cats Ball Club believes that junior sport should be safe, enjoyable, inclusive and maximise individual participation. Our club acknowledges that positive experiences in junior competition will contribute to children developing a lifelong love of sport.

To be eligible for selection, players must be financial and active participants in the Carine Cats Tee-Ball season, and are required to have played at least 50% of club games by the end of the season.

Players will be selected on their performance at nominated team trials and demonstration of commitment and values and behaviour. Selection is not based on personal characteristics or attributes, such as gender. A player may be precluded from selection if there is a concern about their ability to compete safely or if their participation poses a risk to others.

Team Trials

Trials are held over two sessions on two different days – typically a Saturday afternoon and a Monday afternoon following Round 2 of the regular Saturday Club season. It is preferable players attend both sessions, however the club appreciates this may be difficult for all to attend both days. Contact the States Coordinator if your child falls into this category.

  • Day 1 assesses individual skills, in particular batting (directional hitting and power hitting), fielding (infield throwing, outfield throwing, and catching), and base running (timed). Independent assessors are used on this day to collect metrics.
  • Day 2 assesses players’ game play awareness. A series of games are used to assess knowledge and application, in particular batting (following coach directions and making independent decisions), fielding (game play decision making and skill application), and teamwork (leadership, attitude, sportsmanship). Assessors who have experience in coaching these particular age groups are used on this day to lead the games and conduct assessments.
