Grading for the 2019 Winter Competition begins this Saturday 12th January 11am at Centennial Park (Brazilian Fields). We’re looking forward to seeing everyone, both returning and new players alike. A reminder that the CDSFA Winter Competition begins on Saturday April 6 2019.
This year we are grading for 5 teams – three All Age teams (A, B, and C) and two Over 35 teams. It is important to note that there are limited spaces available in these teams, and significant interest from new players, and so new players especially may not be graded into a team if there aren’t any spaces available.
However, regular social matches will be held on Saturdays during the season prior to the Winter Comp matches at Blick Oval, and we encourage those who are not graded into a team this year to attend to have fun, improve your fitness and build skills for future seasons.
It is important that ALL players attending grading read the SRFC Grading Policy linked below.
The Grading Committee contains the coach or representative from each team and for 2019 will be:
Igor Rudar, David Manuca, Kenan Aldemir, Rob Lumb and Mark Robinson.
Setup for grading sessions
Sessions will be 11-aside matches, with a focus on playing in the 1-4-3-3 formation. This formation is the designated formation in the FFA National Curriculum for player development, and Sydney Rangers FC will be adopting this formation as a default for matches. The below graphic highlights the key aspects of the formation, and it will be useful for players to get to know the designated numbers of each position for easy reference during matches
Grading Sessions Schedule 2019
Please see the schedule below for all grading sessions. We ask all returning and new players to attend as many sessions as possible to ensure we balance the squads as well as possible.
It is expected that all players in order to qualify for registration this season will attend at least one session, and preferably more. If for some reason this is not possible please get in touch with one of the Grading Committee.
Please register your attendance on the Facebook event to help the Club prepare for the sessions and ensure that as many people as possible play in their preferred position. If you just turn up on the day you will be allocated where the team has a gap.
