Grading for Under 10 and Under 11 Teams

Players will play in Kanga, Wallaby or Joey teams based on ability, with Kanga team being for the most able players.

Trials will be held in February 2020 to determine eligibility for a Kanga team. The trials will also be used to select the 2020 U10 Development Squad (dates and details below).

Therefore, if your child:

  • wants to play in a Kanga team in 2020, they MUST attend the trials;
  • wants to play in a Wallaby or Joey team in 2020, but wants to be considered for the Development Squad, they MUST attend the trials.

However, if your child wants to play in a Wallaby or Joey team in 2020 and does not wish to be considered for the Development Squad, there is no need to attend the trials.

The number of Kanga teams for 2020 will depend upon the number of players who are assessed as Kanga standard during the trials (as determined by Head of Coaching at BSC and independent assessors). Those players who trial unsuccessfully for a Kanga team will play in a Wallaby or Joey team. Anyone wanting to take part in Grading/ Development Squad Trials must pre-register. 

 

Trial Dates/ Development Squad Arrangements

Brighton Soccer Club (BSC) will be running trials for under 8, 9, 10 and 11 Development Squads and these Trials will be open to all 2020 BSC registered players. These trials will also be used to grade Kanga players for Under 10 & 11 as described above.

Players from these squads will be eligible to be selected to represent the club in additional competitions throughout the year. There is an additional cost of approx $400 per U9, U10 and U11 child (approx $300 per child for U8) if they are accepted into the Development Squad.

Dates and times of the trials for 2020 will be advised. Please check our website closer to the date on how to pre-register for the trials. Players will be asked to nominate on field or goalkeeper position.
