EOI Australian Coaches, Managers, OFS, Umpires, & Technical Officials for 2023

Hi all

With just over a month to our Gold Coast Championships I just wanted to bring you up to date with some changes in the critical dates that I shared with you earlier.

There is some fantastic work going on behind the scenes to include both our 70’s and 75’s age groups to be part of the 2023 Trans-Tasman series. 

As was announced this week, it will be amazing to be able to be part of the Pro League rounds in Christchurch in April and May next year.

EOI’s for Australian Coaches, Managers, OFS, umpires, and technical officials for 2023 are open with a closing date now of the 5th of September. Please encourage suitable people to put their hand up for an amazing experience.

Players Nominations are now also open, and we have had almost 100 nominations in the first few days. Closing date will be as previously advised as the 17th of September. 

Selectors remain one of our most vital roles in the selection of Australian teams.  Closing date for selectors remains the 14th of September.

All the links are shown below so that you can forward them out to your players and interested people.

As always please give me a call if you need anything clarified or I can assist in any way.

Note: To be combined with Victorian Players not shown here.


Due to low number of nominations in the O45s and O60s we were unfortunately not able to select a WA O45s or WA O60s team- however, we have done everything possible to get players who nominated for these 2 teams to be selected in other WA Women's Teams to still be able to compete in this year’s Nationals in Cairns.

For those players who sadly missed out on selection in our WA Women’s Masters Teams, we can still offer you the chance to play in the Nationals in Cairns.  If you are interested, you can be placed on the Pick-up list to be selected by other States, based on the position you play.

If you want to be considered for the Pick-up list, please send me your contact details ( and preferred playing positions by COB 4/7/2022. Interested States will contact you directly and I am happy to liaise and submit the necessary paper work to make it happen.

For those players who nominated for O45s and O60s and have missing out on selection, your nomination fee will be reimbursed. If you think you should get a refund and haven't by 15th July 22 please contact our WAMHC Treasurer, Sinead French-Bluhm ( to action.


Your coaches and managers will be in touch soon with information on timeline, trainings, accommodation, deposits and more.

Look forward seeing you all in Cairns in September!
