Team Allocations - 2013 season

Team Allocation Objectives

As a club our objective is to get as many boys and girls playing football (Soccer) as possible in a fun and enjoyable environment.

Our grading/team allocation objective is to enable players the best chance to develop as well as grow friendships in a team environment.  This allows all players of various skill levels to enjoy football at a level that is comfortable and fun for all.

All players are invited to begin training at preseason (ie prior to grading/allocation) with their own age group. At the time of grading/team allocation, they may wish to trial with the older age group, for which they are most welcome to
