Team Selection Information

 TEAM SELECTION : 10TH -19TH GRADES, YOUTH  AND GIRLS 2022

If you are interested in being considered to play in one of our Academy, A Band, Div 1 and 2 teams, you need to come along to our age group team selection sessions.

All other players who don’t wish to attend team selection or who don’t get selected for an Academy, A Band, Div 1 or 2 team will be put into teams as soon as possible once registration is closed.   Please register for the season early to be sure of a place.

We are running separate sessions if your player wants to trial as a Goal Keeper.  They are welcome to come to the outfield trials too. 

We also have 10th to 18th Grade Girls only teams with separate sessions.

  • Girls have the option of attending age group team selection if they want to play in a mixed team, or the girl’s team selection if they want to play in a girl’s only team.

 

Team Selection sessions are only a small part of our process for putting our teams together. They give us an opportunity to see all of our players in one environment to see how they have developed over the past year and gives all players an opportunity to impress.  We also use lots of different coaches to assess players at trials and then collate scores to ensure there is as no bias in selections.  

When selecting team’s we also take in to consideration feedback from their previous years coach as well as players performances at tournaments, CTFC Academy training attendance and feedback from Academy coaches.

All final selection decisions will be made by the Director of Football.

Team selection:

  • 10th, 11th and 12th grades will comprise of a ‘city wide’ competition with 8 different bands.
  • These grades will play in groups of 6 teams. Every 5 weeks (one round played) the grades will be shuffled with two teams moving up and two teams moving down. The groups will not be split by geography. This may be different depending on the number of entries at each band.
  • In 13th – 17th grades, we will be entering an Academy team into the Youth Premier League, and 1 or more in Division 1 (depending on league structure).
  • In 19th Grade we will be entering 1 team into Div 1, and 1 or 2 teams into Div 2 depending on league structure.
  • In Girl’s grades, we will aim to choose one or more competitive teams in each grade, depending on the final league structure.

We will be posting team selections on our website by the end of February / early March.

If you are interested in trialling for one of these teams but can’t attend our team selection sessions or if you have any queries, please email Lisa Young at lisay@ctfc.co.nz.
