Handling of Regrades

A message from Hills Football regarding the regrading and allocation of points in the new tables.

“The round 4 competitions regrades are now complete and final.

We have spent a lot of time analysing each division and made the decisions that we feel are the best for ALL participants. It was our intention to make each competition competitive.

Now, we will be working on finalising the draws and determining the points for each of the regraded teams.

Here is the process we will follow:

Teams being promoted
Teams will receive ¾ of the points earned in the lower division

Teams being relegated
Teams will receive the same amount of points as the team positioned last in their new division

Divisions that have been merged
These divisions and teams will be analysed in a case by case scenario.
The competition committee, in its absolute discretion, will determine points that are determined to be fair and reasonable.

The tables will be updated from today and will be completed early next week.

We thank you for your patience and understanding

Good luck to all teams for the rest of the season.”

Nice work buddy

Trials Info

Updated Friday March 23, at 2.14pm
ALL TRIALS THIS WEEKEND CANCELLED.
NO GAMES AT TED HORWOOD OR NORTHMEAD HIGH.
Strictly no training at either venue either.

Please see below updated trials information. Please recheck regularly to ensure you know when your team is playing.

Trials Week 3

As previously mentioned we won’t be making any time/day changes, it causes too many knock on effects and way too many emails to sort through.

If a team can’t make it or folds (on either side) that game will be cancelled.

The team managers names are in brackets next to the team. If these are incorrect please let me know. If the manager is unknown I’ve just used the age group coordinator, please forward details to all teams/players.

Please let me know if I’ve missed a team or if a team can’t make their allotted time.

Thanks,

Please note there is no training at Ted Horwood the week of 26th Feb- March 2nd.

Attention team coaches, managers and players

I will be accepting training requests [via email only] after the meeting on the 5th March and not before. The manager or coach of the team will be the only person I will be taking training time requests from. I will not be accepting multiple training requests by age co-ordinators for teams in their age group. Each team's management is responsible for applying for their own training time. These requested training sessions for the regular system will not commence until Monday 2nd April

At the meeting I will explain how training will operate throughout March as Fields 1,2 and 3 will be closed to all football activity as the council over sew the fields with rye grass for the winter season. During March as has been the practice in recent seasons grades will be allocated specific afternoons and nights on fields 4 and 5. Please see the Temporary Training Session for March below. It will be greatly appreciated and expected that grades stick to their allocated afternoons and nights.

The restricted training schedule throughout March will commence Monday 5th March
