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.
Further information on the selection process, selection criteria and our year-long approach to player development can be found at Selection Process.
