National Teams

Junior & Youth Women

The Australian women’s junior and youth squads are selected following the relevant national championships and reviewed regularly following identified competitions and Talent Camps.

Athletes in the junior and youth squads are targeted athletes for future senior teams and are exposed to what is required to become an Aussie Stinger. This includes often being introduced into the elite training environments offered by state sporting Institutes and Academies.

Youth squad members may also be part of their state’s underpinning programs which form an important part of the national athlete pathway.

The junior and youth squads come together for domestic training camps throughout the year to prepare for an international tour. The junior squad is a targeted under 20s group that competes at the Junior World Championships every two years and athletes are selected in line with the relevant age group for each world championships.

The youth squad is a targeted under 18s group that compete at the Youth World Championships in the alternate years to the junior world championships and are also selected in line with the relevant age group for each world championships.
