The junior premier team trials are approaching. Junior premier teams are for players who play at a higher level and are committed to playing around the greater Wellington area. Most premier teams practice twice a week and games can be anywhere from Island Bay to Upper Hutt (or occasionally Wairarapa). There are home games as well.

Please note that there are teams available for players who do not want to commit to this level of football. They will play locally and do not need to trial.

Trial days

On trial day you must sign your child in the correct grade with their date of birth, parent’s email address, and parent’s contact number. Please don’t rely on your child to do this.

Also please make sure that your child has sunscreen on and water, as it may be a very hot day.

Registrations for premier teams will not open until the trials have been completed and your child has been confirmed in a premier squad.

What grade can my child trial for?

If your child is trialing for a premier team they MUST trial within their age range, which is the year they were born. The years and grades are:

10th grade premier team  – a child can trial if born in 2009

11th grade premier team  – a child can trial if born in 2008

12th grade premier team  – a child can trial if born in 2007

13th grade premier team  – a child can trial if born in 2006

14th/15th grade premier team  – a child can trial if born in 2004 or 2005

Important: Under Capital Football rules, girls can also play a year down. For example a girl born in 2008 can trial for the 11th or 10th grade team.

Expectations for junior premier players

There will be some traveling involved to and from the away games therefore parents of players will be expected to provide transport and car sharing is advised.

The registration fee for a premier player is a little higher as we have bigger commitments for equipment and gear.

Parents will be expected to support and assist the coaches where possible, especially for the home games where we are expected to provide nets and corner flags on the pitches.

Players that are selected to play in these teams will be representing KCU. They are expected to behave responsibly both on and off the field as they will be ambassadors for the club.

Premier teams are expected to have at least 2 x training sessions each week to uplift their skills and development to compete at a higher playing level.
