WHAT IS INVOLVED IN GRADING SESSIONS?

A minimum of 2 Grading sessions (maximum of 4) for each competitive age group will consist of a number of 10-minute games over a 1-2 hour period.

All sessions are overseen by Grading Panel selectors.

WHY ARE WE GRADING 10 YEAR OLDS?

Grading Light of players turning 10 years ensures each of teams has suitable skill levels in each area of court. 

WHAT ARE THE GRADING PANEL SELECTORS LOOKING FOR?

Selectors are looking players across the following areas; footwork, ball-handling, speed and agility, body control, attacking skills, game perception and sense, defending.  The panel assess these skills at a level suitable for the age group being graded.

 

Selectors are also look for players who demonstrate sportsmanship and a positive attitude, good fitness and versatility.  An ability to fit into various team combinations to promote team balance is essential.  Ability alone does not necessarily determine where a player is graded.

ARE THE GRADING SESSIONS COMPULSORY TO ATTEND?

Yes, attendance for all players aged 10 to 17 years is compulsory and non-attendance may impact on team selection.  If a player is unable to attend any sessions, that player will be placed in a team at the discretion of the Grading Panel. 

 

To ensure accurate placement, players should attend a minimum of two grading sessions.

Opens age division players (18+) are paper graded only.
