Open Grade – Youth Football – Turning 12 or older this calendar year for boys born 2011 and earlier and female players turning 13 and older (born 20010 and earlier).
Open Grade will play 14 rounds of football (weather permitting). Games may be played at any of the locations around the district, depending on team entries. Results are recorded. Coaches / Managers to get results in to their Grade Coordinator weekly please. No goal difference is recorded, meaning there is no advantage in beating any team by a large margin. Coaches to text the game results to the applicable grade coordinator following each game please.
||2 halves x 35 mins
Each team manager / coach must give equal playing time to all players over the course of the season. Should any teams feel this is not happening, please let the football committee know.
Each player will be put in the applicable grade based on their date of birth, regardless of what box is ticked on the registration form. If it is considered that a player would fit better in a lower or higher grade, then an email request must be made to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the close of registrations. This applies to players who may have played up or down a grade in the previous season.
