As it is the time of the year that the FQPL(NPL), SAP and HP Hawks Academy (formerly known as Komodo) teams are selected, here is some information that will hopefully answer any questions you may have.
We are doing things a bit differently this year and not holding ‘open trials’.
- The first thing the club will do is offer positions for the 2020 season to those retained players from the 2019 SAP and FQPL(NPL) teams. These offers will be taken off the table on Monday 7th October 2019 if not accepted.
- After those players have accepted positions, we will invite players from inside the club that have been identified by their coaches for assessment.
- At this same time, we will invite players from outside HP Hawks that have completed an expression of interest form
To assess players who are invited in, they will train with their respective team in a normal training environment starting the week of 7 October. From there, the coaches and technical staff will complete the teams and make all the remaining offers.
