Important Note Regarding Team Selection
Saturday Competitions (GEBC)
Under 8 & Under 10
Teams are based primarily on friendship requests, school-based groups, and date of birth. Due consideration will be given to playing ability and experience.
Focus shifts to a stronger consideration to skill set, experience, and team balance; with friendship requests, school-based groups and date of birth being less of a consideration.
Under 14-Under 18
The intent is to clearly structure balanced teams based on individual skill set and positional ability.
*Due to lower girl registration numbers, the above selection criteria will be loosely adhered to unless deemed necessary.
Mid-week Competitions (FNJ/MWJ)
All age groups
Team selection is primarily based around friendship groups and requests.
The Club understands there may be extenuating circumstances that necessitate special consideration. Where this is required, we request that it be put in writing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org immediately after registering your child. Although all reasonable requests will be given due consideration, no guarantee is made that they will be accommodated.
Equally, there may be times when a parent disagrees with the team their child has been placed in and wishes to raise queries. Once again, we request that this be put in writing via email to email@example.com. This ensures we have a clear picture of the nature of the request or concern and can address it accordingly.
Once teams are finalized, they will be sent to the respective coach and team manager, if those positions are filled.
*Where it is deemed necessary, the club may decide to conduct a grading day to assist the team selection process.
