All trialling players must register via this NSFA TeamGrader link.

Note that the trialling group is for the age your child will be at the end of the 2021 calendar year.

We ask that all players register for as many trial dates as possible to ensure multiple opportunities for accurate assessments. We encourage everyone to trial if they are keen to see what it is about, but in the end, we want everyone playing at a level that will allow them a positive experience.

When registering and inputting information, please be accurate. Last year we had some parent’s names instead of childrens’, incorrect emails, phone numbers, birthdates, etc. 

Players will be graded based on their ability in the four core skill areas as well as their understanding of the four main moments in a game. Other areas we will be looking at are coachability (ongoing from previous seasons), attitude and effort. The grading process will be done digitally with all coaches submitting grading results on their personal devices. 

For Girls – before registering, please take a look at the different levels and options available on this page.   

For Mixed – the Academy and Development Squad Trials are for talented players U7 to U18 who wish to take part in the clubs flagship Academy and Development Squads. Our Academy teams play in the NSFA SAP League (the top tier of youth football at community level) and our Development teams largely play in the second division.
