Omissions - How to record your non availability   NB: PC players should not use Omissions to indicate PC clashes with AC (please just inform your AC manager)


WHAT AGE GROUP AM I? - The Player Pathway works on year of birth, not school year, as follows:

The 2020-21 season starts in June 2020 with Development Centre activities.  

**Due to Covid restrictions there will be no DCs in 2020**


NB. U13 is the youngest age group but can take players up to two years younger into Development Centre and one year younger into Academy. Very young players may not progress to U13 Academy level as priority must be given to the older players in the age group. Selection for U13 Academy is based on ability, then age.

There is no U18 age group in the Player Pathway at this time.
