To avoid delays with registration lines, please arrive early as we can have over 100 boys attend.
We highly recommend you register your son prior to attending the grading night. This will save you having to fill out an extra form on the night and help reduce the lines.

Those players not registered prior to grading will only be considered for team selection when registration has been completed, prior to the closing date. Players who are not registered attending grading will need to complete a form for identification.
No registrations can be accepted after registrations close, however players can request to be placed on a waitlist and only allocated to a team if a position becomes available.

What if my boy cannot attend grading?
Our preference is all boys attend the grading nights. However if you are unable to attend for some reason, you son will not miss out and will still be placed in a team. The grading night is only one of many factors taken into account when grading the boys. We also rely on past seasons coaches feedback and any other information we have.
If you cannot attend please still ensure you register your boy via the clubs website and contact us here to let us know you will not be able to make it and any other feedback you wish to provide.
