2017 AHJSA Representative Development Squads
Congratulations to all the players that have made the 2017 AHJSA representation team development squads. Due to the large number of quality players that have trialled this year we have elected to go with 2 teams for U12D, U12, U13G, U13 and U16G. I have approached the tournament organisers and they will try to accommodate the extra teams. The U15 & 16 boys have not been as successful with the trial numbers and we will invite all those that trialled to the first 3 or 4 training sessions and will then decide whether to go with the 2 teams or just an U16 teams with the best players from both age groups.
To be eligible to play for an AHJSA representative team, players must be registered financial members of an AHJSA club, and must play a minimum of 50% of the scheduled league matches in the previous 12 months prior to the State Championship, and play a minimum of 50% of the scheduled league matches in the 2017 league season prior to the State Championship. There is provision for exemptions for players with injury or new to the league.
The first session for all teams (unless notified otherwise) will be the 2nd school week in February 2017. The AHJSA through the appointed coach will notify all players where and what time each squad’s first session will commence via the email that you stated at the trial registration (if no email then by phone).
After the first 3-4 sessions the squads will be reduced to approximately 15 or 16 players but if there are less than this number there will be scope to add further players who are deemed suitable by the AHJSA coaching director & executive to form a team of a max number of 16. All rep team players will be required to purchase uniforms and will train together through to the Country Championships in August 2017.
Costs for the rep squad players will be approx. $40 for each tournament and tops will be provided by the AHJSA with a deposit (to be determined) to be paid by the player. They will also be required to purchase socks & shorts for approx. $45.
If you have any questions please contact your team coach or the coaching Director - Andrew Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org).
