Our Meet & Greet is a chance for you to meet with the players and families in your age group and hear about what will be happening in the coming season. As we are still in the middle of the registration period, team allocation may not be finalised by next week, but you will have the chance to meet the coaches who have already volunteered in your age group as well as hear other important information.
March 12th at Newport Oval.
- Grading for U/9 will be from 9.00am-10.00am
- Grading for U/12 will be from 10.30am – 11.30am
- Please bring boots, mouth guards, drink bottle etc
The Manly Warringah District Junior Rugby League competition rules state that where there are enough teams in a particular age group to form 2 or more divisions, then those divisions will be graded according to ability. That is the 1st division will include teams considered of the highest ability and so forth.
What this generally means for Mona Vale is that if we have enough registered players to form 2 or more teams in a particular age group, then the “maroon”, or first team is selected to participate in the 1st division. The 2nd team, the “white” team, will generally participate in the 2nd division. Should we have a 3rd team entered, then that “blue” team will generally participate in the 3rd division. If a 3rd division does not exist, that team will participate in the 2nd division.
Because of these competition rules, many of our young players find that they are competing against teams of different ability.
By grading players from a certain age group it provides them with the opportunity to:
- Be in (and play against) teams with other players of similar attitude and ability,
- Have an equal opportunity to participate, and
- Have an equal opportunity to contribute to the team’s performance.
These conditions provide the best opportunity for development of football, team skills and enjoyment through participation and achievement.
The day and time for training will be advised at the Meet & Greet by your coach.
We have been advised the competition will start on Saturday 1st April. There will be 2 rounds then a 1 week break for holidays, hopefully then a 9 week draw will be released.
