Grading for Football Season 2018 

The preseason of 2018 will see the grading of U10 through to U18 Mixed and Girls Teams. All Players must be registered before they participate in grading. Please read the registration information, instructions and procedures here

The U9's are included but we will have an optional grading for those who want to be competitive and try out for the top teams. All other U9 players for 2018 that do not participate in the optional grading will continue to be “soft graded” similar to last year with the additional resource of the 2017 Player Assessment Form, kindly completed by the U8 coaches of 2017. These Player Assessment Forms will assist the U9 Age Coordinator with the formation of the teams and potentially allow them to assemble players of similar skill levels.

The scheduled grading days are as follows:

Kids will only be able to attend grading if they are registered. We will be accepting registrations on the day but it is highly recommended to register before as it is a very busy day. If you need to register come earlier.

All grading will be conducted by FFA Accredited Coaches, where possible. The selections from the grading will rest with the Age Managers. The final decision will be that of the Coaching Director.

Day 1 – Will be the assessment of a Players four (4) Core Skills – First Touch – Striking the ball- Running with the ball – 1versus 1.

 Day 2 – Will be small sided Game Trainings 5v5, 6v6, 7v7
