Girls Academy and Division 1 Trials - Important Information for Parents and Players
1. Abbotsford Juniors Football Club's core values include the promotion of female participation and achievement in football at all levels (Respect and Development).  Accordingly, the Club is committed to cater for female players who wish to play both at a competitive level and those who play for social/friendship purposes.

2. The Trial process is focussed on providing the platform for competitive players and selecting the Club’s Academy Division 1 team in select age groups.

3. Players do not need to attend a Trial session if they want to play for social/friendship purposes.  The majority of Abbotsford Juniors teams in each age group (ie. non-graded players) will be formed by the Club in late February / early March 2024 upon completion of the registration period. Players who played in a Division 1 team for Abbotsford Juniors in season 2022 do not automatically qualify for that team in season 2024.  That is, all players who aspire to play in these teams in 2024 must attend the Trial sessions in November/December.

4. If Abbotsford Juniors does not receive sufficient player pre-registrations, the Club may elect to cancel the trial planned for the age group.  Further, if Abbotsford Juniors receives insufficient player interest or ability, the Club may elect not to form a Division 1 team as a result of this process.

5. Trials are entirely optional and players are not expected to attend should they wish to play for social/friendship purposes only or in a lower division. Players who are not selected for an Academy team and who wish to play for the Club will be allocated to a team in late February / early March 2024, following the registration process.

Trial & Selection Process
1. All players must arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled trial commencement time to register on the day with Club officials and receive a trial number.  Players should wear boots and shin-pads, be wearing sunscreen and bring a water bottle.
2. Trials will be run by the AJFC Football Development Program.
3. Trial sessions will be held for each age group at the scheduled times.  Players should register for, and attend the correct session for the age group they will be registered to play in the 2024 Season.
4. Where a player wishes to trial for an AJFC Academy team and is unable to attend, they should complete registration for the trial AND let the Club know they cannot attend along with the circumstances by emailing PRIOR to the trial commencing.  Any players who have completed trial registration and are unable to attend will be considered for the Academy team in their age group based on their playing history with Abbotsford Juniors (or other Club) and any relevant coach feedback from the 2023 Season.
5. If required, the Club will announce additional trial dates and times on its website following the grading sessions held in December.
6. The aim of the trial and selection process is to select a squad per age group as follows: 
Under 8 to Under 9 - 10 to 11 players
Under 10 to Under 12 - 12 to 13 players
Under 13 and above - 15 to 16 players
7. Upon completion of the trial session for an age group, Club appointed assessors will discuss and assess each player and as an outcome, commence the process of selection of the team for that age group.  These assessments will be provided to AJFC’s Football Development Program, who will finalise the team selection.
8. Selected players will be offered a place in the team via email.  These offers must be accepted by return email by the deadline date specified.
9. Players not selected will be allocated by the Club to a team in late February / early March 2024, following completion of the registration process.
10. Final teams will be announced on the Abbotsford Juniors Football Club website following the completion of trial sessions and offer process.
