The Womens' senior regional programme is set to begin in September and will culminate with the final round in December.
The tournament will kick off on September 25 with the second round scheduled for October 16. The third round of fixtures will be played on November 27 with the final found on December 18.
The competition offers a chance for all players to trial at regional level and if selected, players get the chance to play against the best players in the country. In the process they will come under the scrutiny of national management who will be watching with a keen interest.
As in past campaigns, current international and age grade pathway players will be placed.
The regions' trials are open to all players aged 18 or over. They are also open to to players playing club rugby in Wales and to any Welsh qualified players playing outside of Wales.
