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 Teams for 2018 will not participate, and 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, whilst not losing sight of the ethos of U9 football – “To have fun with friends and learn the world game of Football”
The scheduled grading days will be announced soon.
The Grading process used by PRSL FC in 2018 will be closely aligned with the FFA National Football Curriculum and will utilise Skill and Small Game session plans consistent with the age groups being graded across two days. 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
All Players attending the Grading days should be free of injury and must bring:
- Players strip
- Shin Pads
- Football boots
- Drink bottle and Sun screen
- Football (where possible)
