FAQs – Trials for high-level teams

Do I still need to trial if played in one these teams last year?

Assume yes.   Please fill out the application form to let us know your intentions.  It’s possible the coach will offer some existing players their spot back without needing to re-assess their ability.

.

Why are the trials on different times and days of the week?

Parents and children often have other commitments which might clash with the trials.   The trials sessions are on different times to maximise that chance that everyone can attend at least one of the trials..
.
.

Do I need to attend all trials sessions?

No you don’t have to, but your chances to impress the selectors are increased if you do.

If circumstances dictate that you are unable to attend any or all of the sessions, please let us know and the selectors will make appropriate allowances for the circumstances.

Are selectors allowed to judge and comment about their own kids?
No.  In the event that a child of one of the selectors is trialling, then that selector isn’t allowed to record any observations or make any comments about their own child’s trial.

 

If I’m selected, when is training?

All Glen Eira high-level teams train 2 or 3 times a week.   The coach will let you know which nights your team will train.

What if I don’t agree with the trials outcome?

The selectors are available to discuss (learning opportunities for) every kid with their respective parent/guardian.  They will refrain from discussing other children, i.e. he will not make comparisons. If you’re not satisfied, the club’s manager and/or president is available to sit in on a second discussion. Furthermore, he’ll take suggestions for improvement of the trials procedure for the following year.
