2019 Season Welcome

Welcome to all the 2019 Registered Players and Families, please read the following important information regarding the start of the Season


JUNIOR NON-COMP MEET & GREET DAY

With Registrations soon coming to a close, we now have a clearer picture of what teams we are likely to have in 2019. Players in the U5 to U11 age groups are asked to attend our initial Meet and Greet day for placing into the respective teams and meeting the coach.

When:THURSDAY 14th MARCH
Where: DOORALONG OVAL, DOORALONG
Time: 5PM (Football For All 4:30pm)


TEAM & PLAYER GRADING

Where we have enough players for more than one team this usually requires a player grading day or days to help determine the make up and team grade of the squads. Grading takes affect from U9’s and up and is an important part of setting up teams. It is done on a year to year basis because as players get older, they can develop at different rates. Our responsibility as a club to to provide a fun but competitive environment for kids to learn and develop their skills. It’s therefore very important to try and ensure the players are grouped together with like ability and may mean on some occasions that players are sorted into different teams to what they have been in the past and even different teams to some friends. Logistical and family reasons and other factors are considered as part of the process bur we ask for your understanding and support as Grading is by no means an exact science but we try our best to create the teams in the best interests of the player and the team as a whole. This year we will need to grade the U9, U10 and U11 age groups.

  • * U9 session is scheduled for Hopetown School on Pollock Ave, Wyong between 5pm-6pm on TUES 5th MARCH.
  • * U10 + U11 session is also scheduled for Hopetown School between 5pm-6pm on THU 7th March.

Don’t stress if you are unable to make it. Just advise us (by return email for example) so we can make a note take into consideration. Teams aren’t necessarily finalized on the one grading session. We do look at players in trial games and training as well and if we see there needs to be a swap somewhere then this can happen afterwards.
