The State Cup Competition is held in Perth and is a pathway for representative teams from across the state to participate. It is also the platform for Netball WA & State Team Selectors to select athletes for the Fever in Time Program (FIT). Netball WA State 17U & 19U Teams are selected from the FIT Program. South West representative teams compete in the State Cup Competition ensuring opportunity for the athletes. 

Athlete selection for the South West State Cup Teams comes primarily from the South West Regional Championships. However, if there is a valid reason as to why an athlete is not able to participate in the Championships (e.g. Injury/Illness) and they have been identified during Association visits they may be invited to the State Cup Squad. 

Once selected, the State Cup Squad athletes will be required to attend 2 team selection dates to select the final teams.
