DURATION: Please allow 90mins for each team allocation session.

FAQs

Do I still need to attend the allocation sessions if I played in one of these teams last year?
clipboard-checkbox-icon

Assume yes.   Please fill out the application form to let us know what level your child is interested in playing at.  Players’ circumstances and skill levels can change significantly from year to year.  Each season we declare all spots vacant and we start fresh with the Selection Criteria.   Astute parents will note that being in the same team last year is a factor in the selection criteria.

Why are the allocation sessions on different times and days of the week?

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

Do I need to attend all allocation sessions?
selection_trials_icon

No you don’t have to, but your chances of being allocated a mid-level spot 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 coordinator may be able to arrange for a mid-level coach with a vacancy to ‘have a look at’ your child at one of their training sessions.   If this happens, please don’t expect too much – it’s still a long shot.

Are girls eligible for boys teams?

Technically yes.  But since the Club now offers high-level girls’ teams in most age groups,  we would be keen to find out exactly why she needs to play in a boys team please?

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

What if the weather is too hot?

The club’s Extreme Weather Policy applies to Team Allocation Sessions just the same as it does to matches and training sessions.
