Why do we have trials?

  •  Club Growth - Our club has grown significantly over the past few years and is predicted to grow even further in the years to come. We are now fielding more than one team in most age divisions.
  •   Competing at right level - By selecting like-minded players in the same teams, we are ensuring our teams are competing at a level in which all players are capable.
  •  Training and Coaching - Our coaches will find planning and running training sessions much smoother as all players are at a similar level of ability.
  •  Representative Duties - For BWHA representative team trials, representatives are chosen and usually evaluated in higher teams
  •   Attracting talent to club - Clubs with higher correctly graded teams attract future players
  • Selectors and coaches will be evaluating each player based on a merit under four distinct areas - Technique, Tactics, Speed and Personality

What will help my child at the trials? 

  • Help them to be physically and mentally prepared for the trials, early night good food and plenty of fluids.
  • Bring a never give up attitude
  • Bring all the necessary equipment i.e. shin pads, drink bottle, stick, mouthguard, arrive 10 minutes early.
  • Encourage your child to use their voice during drills and games to encourage other team members in a positive way.
  • Have fun and bring a positive attitude
  • Finally, and this is just not for trial day
  • Encourage your child and educate them on how to be attentive, the coaches only have them for 1.5hours of training each week, listen to the coach and ask appropriate questions, pay attention to what the coach asks, and try to be the best you can be.  As coaches we all love kids who listen and try to the best of their ability.


Like any competitive sport, hockey is more enjoyable if you are playing alongside and against like-minded and equal ability peers. We conduct trials to have the best teams for the different levels within the turf /grass competition. As such there are no guarantees for individuals that they will be selected in the same grade as in previous years. We believe this to be fair for both existing and new members. As per previous years there will be external selectors helping coaches select the teams for 2021.

One last point, if your child fails to make a top team, don't be disappointed or angry. Ask the coaches for feedback, ask what areas your child could improve in.
