Trials - 2018
Posted Nov 23, 2017 in Team & Grade News by Lisa Young
All players wishing to Trial for an A Band or Div 1 or 2 team are welcome to attend the first trial. There is no need to book a place for trials, simply arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled trial time and sign in.
After making some successful adjustments to our trial selection process for 2017, we will look to repeat a similar process and schedule in 2018. At the first trial players will play small sided games that give lots of opportunities to defend and attack and demonstrate the player’s ability. The following week we will have invitation only trials where we will play full sided games that allow the players to perform and be assessed in a full match environment. We will be using some of our CTFC Academy staff as well as first team players and some external coaches to give us the best opportunity for unbiased selections. We will also endeavour to have a goalkeeper coach at each trial to assess the goalkeepers.
Players up until 13th grade will only be able to play up a grade in exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the Football Development Manager, players at 14th grade and above will only be able to play up a grade at the discretion of Mainland Football where dispensation will be required.
Players need to be registered with the club in order to be considered for an A or B team.
