Team selections 2018

Please be sure that the Junior Committee has been working exhaustively on planning for 2018 and beyond. Our goal is to build a strong, loyal base of club members.

It has been decided that rather than hold trials, the club is in a very good position where our coaches know the players well and we have a strong standard across our age groups. Therefore we will not hold trials unless absolutely necessary. Instead we will be working across each age group to develop club members and promote where possible, rewarding loyalty and commitment and hard work, as well as ability.

Below is the current situation for each of the age groups.

U13-U16 BYPL Brisbane Youth Premier League (formerly SYL)

The head coaches are working on player selection for 2018 and at this stage we do not intend to hold trials for current club members.  Those who have been selected for BYPL teams will receive notification in coming weeks. A non-refundable deposit will be required to secure the position. Selections will be based on input from 2017 coaches, as well as feedback about attitude and behaviour. Where a gap exists in our club strengths we may invite players from outside the club to trial in the preseason.

U13-U16 all levels – coach selection

The head coaches are still working on coaching structures for these age groups and coaches will be contacted soon for expression of interest for coaching positions.

U9-U12 Komodos

The head coaches are working on player selection for 2018 and at this stage we do not intend to hold trials for current club members.  Those who have been selected for Komodo teams will receive notification in coming weeks. A non-refundable deposit will be required to secure the position. Selections will be based on input from 2017 coaches, as well as feedback about attitude and behaviour. Where a gap exists in our club strengths we may invite players from outside the club to trial in the preseason. Some teams may need a few weeks of preseason training before the player positions are settled.

U9-U12 Goannas and Geckos

As usual these teams will be formed after registration has closed in the new year and may require some cohorts to train together before being settled.

U9-U12 all levels – coach selection

The head coaches are still working on coaching structures for these age groups and coaches will be contacted soon for expression of interest for coaching positions.

U8 Cross-river team

All U8 players will commence the season training together as a cohort and players will be selected to join the Cross River team before matches begin in March/April. The coach for this team is Craig McLeod.

U6-U8 in-house teams

As usual these age groups will remain social and not streamed on standard. The head coaches are still working on coaching structures for these age groups and coaches will be contacted soon for expression of interest for coaching positions.

Player registration – all juniors

Player registration will open in early January and we are considering introducing a close date for registrations so we can then confidently resolve team selections sooner. Full fee payment is required before a player can be put in a team. Please check the club website and Facebook closer to Christmas for the most up-to-date information.
