Grading & placement into teams

What is Grading?

The aim of Grading is to form teams in an age group which have a balanced group of players with comparable skills and similar ability across all playing positions. There are many aspects taken into consideration such as player experience, ability, fitness, attitude and playing positions.

The players trialling and team selections be selected based on player’s performance at the trials, together with last year’s feedback from 2020 coaches.

Do I have attending Grading?

When and where is Grading?

What if I am unable to attend Grading??

If a player is unable to attend grading please send an email to the club, outlining the reason for the non-attendance and your expectations relating to grading.

For example, outline if you think the player has the ability to play in top two teams in her age group, or alternatively, if you are happy for her to be graded into a similar team as last year.

I am 13 to 15 years and attend Grading and miss out on being selected in the ‘top 2 teams’.

If you attend Grading and are not selected in the ‘top 2 teams’ (top 16 players), you will not be automatically placed into the 3rd team. You will be placed back into the pool of players in your age group and placed in a team based on previous years’ information and coaches feedback.

Can I play up in a higher age group?

Yes. A player may request to play in a higher age group, however, the final decision to do so will be made by the Grading Committee and Registrar based on team numbers.

Click the box “Play in a higher group” on the registration form.

On occasions, players may be requested by the Club to play in a higher age group. This will only occur when the required numbers for a team are not reached.

Can I play with my friends?

Juniors (10, 11 & 12 years) – No, you cannot request to play with friends. As a result of the grading process, if you and your friends have similar skills and ability, you may be placed in the same team.

Juniors (13, 14 & 15 years) – No, you cannot request to play with your friends. The ‘top 2 teams’ in each age will be selected as a result of Grading; the remaining teams will be selected for those players who choose not to Grade

NetSetGO   Intermediates   and   Seniors – Yes. Make an appropriate note in the “Team Request” field on the online Registration Form.

Can I form my own Team?

Junior Teams ( 10, 11 & 12 years ) – No. Teams will be selected based on Grading and you will be placed in teams with similar skills, ability and attitude.

Juniors ( 13, 14 & 15 years ) – No. The ‘top 2 teams’ will be selected based on Grading. Those who do not attend Grading be placed in teams based on previous years’ information and coaches feedback.
