What level are you at?

Dot Clubs games are casual - just turn up, join a team, jump in and have a go. In fact this is the case worldwide and websites exist to encourage players to play as they travel.

Dot State Champs (representing your club) are casual - we make every effort to accommodate all players and get them on a team.

Dot Nationals (representing your State) are serious - you need to make the cut.

Dot Worlds (representing Australia) are more serious - The elite mens team is hotly contested and you'll need several years to make it, but it is not uncommon for Juniors to make the National team in their first or second year.

Dot A number of clubs also organise social competitions throughout the year with the Wollongong 4's being one of the most popular and longest running.
