Country Week is a competition that is held annually in Perth during the first week of the September/October School Holidays. Generally, each team will play two games per day from Monday through to Thursday, with the finals taking place on the Friday, this being the final day of competition.
*Please note – If you have been unsuccessful in making an AJSA Country Week team this year, we request that you do not make direct contact with other regional associations requesting to be a part of their team. If an association requires additional players from other regional areas, they are to follow procedures put into place by Football West. We assure all of our members that should an association require additional players we will advertise this information for any participants to apply accordingly. We ask that you respect this procedure and once again request that you do not make contact with any other association until requested*
