Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What do we wear?

All players must bring water, shin pads, sun protection (hat and sunscreen).

NO studs to be worn and any suitable shorts, shirts and socks can be worn.

Q: How are children graded?

  • U6 – U8s teams are formed based on the children’s friendships, or allocated based on their age if no friends are noted on file at registration.
  • Individual grading starts from U9 with similar ability players where possible placed together for optimal learning environments.
  • From U10s and above, each child is individually graded based on their ability and placed into a relevant team.
  • Grading prioritises player skill development over existing
    friendships, particularly for the top team of that age.
