All players / Parents check their personal details are all correct at Admin desk.
Every player is given a unique identifier (bib)
4 different colored bibs are uniquely numbered, randomly selected, recorded against each name.
A selected group of Coaches/Support Staff are appointed as markers.
The end game on Day1 is for the Head Coach of the Team to select their top 11 players
The markers act as another set of eyes and selections are compared
On Day 1 colored bibs have no meaning other than to uniquely identify a player
Part 1 - Ground Setup
They get to play a small sided “keeping off” game 5v5 / 6v6; One Group rotate across the squares
A marker is stationed at a dedicated square; only the group of players rotate.
Part 2- Ground Setup
They get to play a full sided game 11v11 (mixed). Team selection (mixed). No selection on ability or position has been made at this stage – we just want to have a look at the child’s small sided and long sided ability.
Our aim on Day 1 is to pick a team of 11 who will wear the green bib on day 2. This green team is referred to as the ‘go’ team. It means your child has one foot in the door but not fully there just yet.
At the end of the night, after the deliberation phase is complete only 36 Players will return for Day 2
Player cuts are done and emails are sent to notify the “unsuccessful” candidates.
A list of the top 11 players are selected and given to the admin desk, they will be known as the "Go" team.
