2019 Grading Days

All Junior players are required to attend the grading sessions for their correct age group.

Players can also ‘trial’ for an older group, but must attend their own age session as well. There is no guarantee given that these players will be placed in the older age group. Such requests will be considered on an individual basis and be at the sole descretion of the geading committee. If you do wish to trial for an older age group please notify the grading coordinator by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. prior to your session.

Please arrive 20 minutes before your session start time to sign in and get ready. Boots and shin pads must be worn by all participants.

Times and dates may change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstance. Please check the website for any last-minute information.

U6 & U7 sessions are about forming teams with friends and getting the kids excited about playing. Our Premier League squad will run some fun drills/games for the kids while parents get all the information they need for the season ahead. This age group does not need to attend both sessions.

In U8 & U9 players are ‘soft-graded’ – that is, we do not apply the same criteria to individual players that we do in older age groups. However, we do start to put similarly-skilled players together to aid their development and so teams have a better playing experience. It is preferred that players in these ages attend both sessions.

From U10 up, players are graded individually based on their performance during grading and when required, the player evaluation sheet from the previous season. It is expected that players in these age groups attend both sessions.

Friends who wish to play together in a team must inform the Grading Coordinator prior to grading and all friends/parents must agree. The Club will do what it can to fulfil such a request, however, the final decision is at the discretion of the grading committee, and the friends will accept that the Club may place them into whichever team and/or division it chooses, and will only do so if it does not unduly impact other teams.

We understand that genuine relationship difficulties sometimes arise between players and/or parents. If you would like us to take such circumstances into account, please write to the Club President at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before, or with in 24 hours following your first grading session. Any such correspondence will remain confidential and the grading committee will be told only what is necessary for their deliberations. If we are unable to satisfy your request, the Club President will discuss the matter further with you.

If a player is feeling ill or has any injury that may affect their grading performance, this information must be communicated to the Grading Coordinator prior to, or at, the grading session. 

If a player cannot attend any of the grading sessions, they need to inform the Grading Coordinator beforehand by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Players that do not attend grading may be placed into teams at the grading committee’s discretion.

Parents and players should not make assumptions about team formation at, or after, grading sessions. The grading committee will meet to make their final decisions in the week after the last grading session. Players and parents will be notified of their team placement via email as soon as practical after that meeting.

If you are not happy with an individual player grading result, or the team into which they are placed, appeals must be put in writing via email within 5 days of team notification to the Club President at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and will be assessed by the Grading Committee. Their decision will be final. 

Please note that although the Club recommends specific divisions when registering teams with the association, HFI makes the final decision.


A Friendly Reminder...

Our club is run by volunteers. They give their time at no cost to help the club run. The club requests that you respect the grading committee’s decisions and do not abuse the members of our grading committee. The board will do what it can to accommodate individual requests, however it may not always be possible or practical to do so. The board understands that mistakes are sometimes made, and in that instance we are more than happy to answer any questions or alleviate any concerns you may have as long as it is done in an appropriate manner and with respect.
