Team composition and selection:

Team selection and composition for/of senior teams during trials:

  • After the first two rounds of trials, players will be selected by the coaches for either the A, B or C squad.
  • Squad trainings will follow for a further week, after which teams will be announced at our Meat du Cap evening (Team announcement evening)
  • 16 players will be selected per team (at least for the top sides, and then where possible).
  • The top three teams will comprise no more than 5 scholars each, and no more than 3 scholars from the same school.
  • In agreement with the club committee, a coach may use his/her discretion to deviate from these policies where seen fit.

Weekly selection for senior teams

  1. All club members are to communicate their weekly availability on their team’s WhatsApp group by no later than Monday evening.
  2. All coaches will undertake their weekly team selections in accordance to WPHU League Rules and based on the following guidelines:
  • A match will be played with no more than 16 players; the exact number of players is to each coach’s discretion.
  • Coaches will consider paid-up club members first.
  • Each player’s overall practice attendance, as well as that of the previous week/s, and reason for absenteeism from practice will be considered next.
  • Discipline issues will be considered afterward.
  • Players with outstanding fees will only then be selected.
  • Emergency players will be considered last. Emergency players are players who are contacted at the last minute to fill a vacant spot in a team; these players must complete the registration process before being allowed to represent the club.

Senior players joining after trials

  • Based on previous achievements, players that join the club after trials have been completed will be accommodated in the team one lower than assumed suitable. Here, they will play for a trial period of 2 weeks; exceptions with regards to the trial period can be made when seen fit by both the committee and coach/es.
