FAQs – Trials for regular 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.

selection_trials_iconAre girls eligible for boys teams?

Yes, talented girl players are encouraged to trial for a spot in a mid-level boys team.  If successful the club will seek player dispensation from FFV.

What do I need to bring?
  • Boots and shin guards
  • Drink bottle (more than 1 in hot weather)

 

 

What if the weather is too hot?

The club’s Extreme Weather Policy applies to trials the same as it does to matches and normal training sessions.

Is there a fee to trial?

No fee to trial.

Note however that if you are offered a spot, you must accept the offer and pay the normal registration fee by the deadline in order to confirm your spot.

clipboard-checkbox-iconWhen will the trials results be announced?

The results of the trials will be sent to the email address provided on the application form within 7 days of the last trials session.

 

Are selectors allowed judge and comment about their own kids?
No.  In the event that a selector’s kid 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?

Regular teams train once or twice 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.
