GRADING POLICY

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 are required to trial and teams will be selected based on player’s performance at the trials, together with last year’s mid-season player review and feedback from 2019 coaches.

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. 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 (under 10s to 15s) – 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.

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 (under 10s to 15s) – No.  You will be Graded and players will be placed in teams with similar skills, ability and attitude.

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