Parents and or Guardians

We advise all parents and guardians from the start of the trial process that players will be selected according to the criteria above.  Under no circumstances will Parents and Guardians have any involvement in the trial and selection process.  The decision of the selection panel will be final.  We ask that you respect this as no discussion will be entered into after the selection has been made.  We thank you for your understanding.

If a player is successful in SAP/QPL/Komodo or Divisional, they will receive a letter of offer which will identify their team, the fee and the process of acceptance and payment.  Players will be given a week to consider the offer, accept the position, and pay a non-refundable deposit.

We look forward to seeing you at the trials and in our teams for 2019.  Good luck to all participants.
