It's that time of year already and our online registrations will be open from the 1st February. Please ensure you register as soon as possible to avoid missing out.
We will be holding two registration days at the club for those that prefer to register in person and pay by cheque, cash or Eftpos. The dates and times are listed below and will also be posted on Facebook.
Sunday 7th February 2016
9th & 10th Grades @ 12.00 - 2.00pm
11th & 12th Grades @ 2.30 - 4.30pm
Sunday 14th February 2016
15th to 17th Grades @ 12.00 - 3.00pm
13th to 14th Grades @ 3.30 - 5.30pm
ALL TRIALS WILL BE HELD AT ROYAL RESERVE, MASSEY.
Trials are for all players that are looking to play their football at Ranui Swanson Football Club for the 2016 season. We would like all players to have the opportunity to try out for out top teams in all age groups. Even if players were happy with the team/coach they were with in 2015. They still need to be seen at trials. Not at any point will a player be made to play in any team they are not happy with. If for any reason your child cannot make the dates/times given please contact the firstname.lastname@example.org
The selection of players for the 2016 season will be made jointly by a collaborative approach between the Director of Academy and Youth Development (Lee Gosshawk) and the individual team coaches.
All players selected for our top teams (Conference or Division 1) are automatically offered a spot in the Elite Academy, plus any individual players from other teams that are able to compete at this level, but for one reason or another are playing in a lower division. The players in all of our junior/youth teams will be offered the chance to enrol in our Development Academy. Details of this will be sent closer to the start of the season. Please note, the Academy cost is on top of the fee you pay Ranui Swanson FC for the season.
Our 6th, 7th and 8th Grade players are invited to Royal Reserve on the 27th February from 2.00pm for a fun afternoon of small sided games, plus age appropirate drills, this will enable us to place everyone in a team for the season. We are constantly looking for parent/caregivers to coach these age groups, and Lee will be present on the day to have a chat with anyone wishing to take up the challenge. Coaches from the 2015 season will be contacted directly to find out what their plans for 2016 are before the fun day.
Any questions or concerns, please contact the club secretary, Deborah Gosshawk.
