Team Formation Process
In the younger teams, the players play with their mates, this is the core ideal that forms the teams from Under 8s to Under 12s.
- A balance needs to be achieved to ensure that the final team is not made up of a single school to promote interactions with other children from the broader community;
- Where two or more sides are formed in the same age group, the composition of the teams will be selected before the commencement of games by the Age Group Co-Ordinator & Coaches to form teams with equal numbers, where possible.
Introduce squad training to facilitate expanding the “team feeling” across multiple teams in an age group and developing a club culture.
Players will be allocated to teams by Age Group Coordinators and final player allocations will be reviewed and approved by the Executive Committee.
Target of having 22 players per team.
Any exceptions to be reviewed and approved by the Executive Committee.
Previously registered players have preference over new players to the club.
All players must be registered correctly in their age group.
All players should play in their correct age groups except in exceptional circumstances:
- e.g. Insufficient numbers in the older age group; or
- to enable an even balance of players in all teams; or
- where Coaches agree that development of a player would be enhanced by playing in an older age group and the player is capable of playing at that level.
- Playing in a higher age group will require the approval of the Executive Committee
No grading of players in the formative years from U8 to U12.
Hard Grading and Movement of players at U13 and above.
Teams are graded according to an internal assessment by Football Operations, Age Group Coordinators, year level Coaches and the Committee.
Final Teams will be reviewed and approved by the Executive Committee.
