AWFA's first ever representative strip presentation held at the Commercial Club on Saturday saw more than 250 guests, including players and their families attend.
The association has an all new look for its representative players, with the under-13, 14, 15 and 16 boys to compete in the Bathurst Cup this coming weekend.

A weekend later, the under-12, 14 and 16 girls make the trip to Bathurst for the Proctor Cup.
Meanwhile, the under-11 girls and under-11 and 12 boys are off to Bendigo in March for the Boys FC and Girls FC tournaments, run by Football Victoria.
"The other exciting news is the NSW Country Cup is open to all country associations, where state selectors will be in attendance to identify players for all Country NSW state teams," AWFA president Mark Leman said.
"We will also be supporting local country regions who have been either affected by drought or bushfires."
"Tournaments will be played in Moruya, Orange, Nowra, Shoalhaven and Griffith."
With the Victorian Country Championships in Geelong on the Queens Birthday weekend, Football Victoria will be selecting an All Stars team for each age group and to also identify players to represent Country Victoria at the FFA National Championships.
Football Victoria is also going to give the association's under-13 and 14 boys and girls the opportunity to go tour China in 2021.
"These new initiatives have created a great buzz around our representative program and to give all of our players the opportunity to not only be identified for the hard work they have put in, but to also provide an opportunity to represent their state," Leman added.
"This would not be possible for our sponsors who have contributed to ensure that these young players are given all the resources. Our thanks goes out to the Commercial Club, Optus, BF Transport and Laramy Sportswear."
