2019 MENA Representative Team Trials

 

 

Trials were held on Sunday 21st & 28th of October at Great Ryrie Primary School and Aquinas College.

 

Sunday, 21st October

11 and under   : 8.00am Registration for 8.30 – 11.00am at Aquinas College

13 and under   : 8.00am Registration for 8.30 – 11.30am at Great Ryrie Primary School

15 and under   : 11.30am Registration for 12.00 – 3.00pm at Great Ryrie Primary School

17 and Under plus Opens :       2.30pm Registration for 3.00pm – 5.30pm at Great Ryrie Primary School

 

17 and under plus Opens

After putting together the games for the Under 17 & Open trials we have made the decision to change from two to one week of trials.   We believe with the number of players who are trialing that the coaches and selectors will get through enough games to make decisions around team compositions in one week of trials.  We are conscious of how busy everyone is at this time of year and are confident that all players will still receive ample court time.  Any issues please contact Bec Palma – Rep Convenor on repconvenor@menanetball.com.au.

 

 Registrations for U11, U13 & U15 closed Wednesday 10th October.  Registrations for U17 & Open teams closed Thursday 18th October.

 

You will receive an email with more information, confirmation details and times.  If you have any questions, email repadmin@menanetball.com.au

Eligibility

 

 Age - All age groups are calculated by the age you will turn in 2019. The age groups are that age and under.

 

 For example – Katie has her birthday on the 29/11/19 and will be turning 15. She is eligible to play in 15U. Grace turns 16 on the 31/3/19 so will be playing 17U.

As per MENA Bylaws - Minimum age for Open players is 15 years.

 

Qualifying - As the Representation Program is representing MENA we require all participants in the rep program to play with a MENA club during the domestic seasons with the exception being Open players who currently are encouraged, but not required to play, on a Saturday or with a Monday night team.

 

 Players will need to have played enough games to qualify for finals in BOTH seasons (Spring and Autumn) in 2019 but are expected to fully participate in their team's season.

 

 Failure to meet this condition will result in a loss of a place in the program. Extenuating circumstances may be taken into account by the Rep Subcommittee.
