Champness attended St Patrick's College where he was college captain in 2014 and played for the Brisbane Roars Youth Team before moving to Newcastle to pursue his football career.
Champness signed a scholarship contract with the Newcastle Jets along with 3 other emerging youngsters in January 2017 until the end of the 2017-18 season, but almost immediately after the deals were announced Champness and former emerging Jet Antonee Burke signed a loan deal with Portuguese 2nd Division club Academica de Coimbra through to mid-2017. Champness spent his time at Academica playing football for the reserve team and occasionally training with the first team.
Champness had a good pre season in 2017 appearing regularly for the first team, scoring 4 goals and impressing new coach Ernie Merrick enough to reward him with a 3-year deal until 2019/20 although he will still be playing under the scholarship contract for the 2017-18 season. Champness made his professional debut on the 7 October 2017 away to the Central Coast Mariners coming on late and scoring a goal in the 81st minute. Champness then started his first professional game in Round 5 at home against the Wellington Phoenix. Champness scored his second goal for Newcastle in round 8 starting the game and scoring in the 75th minute in the Jets 4-1 win over the Melbourne Victory.
