AoC Sport national netball trials 2016/17
AoC Sport will run a national netball team once again for the 2016/17 academic year, with a two-stage trial process in place to select the final squad.
1st stage – from the regional netball tournaments
2nd stage – Thursday 24 and Friday 25 November. 11-4 and 10-2. University of Nottingham: Jubilee Campus, Sports Centre JC, 7301 Wollaton Rd, Nottingham NG8 1BB
AoC Sport would like each region to host their netball trials through their regional tournament, with a view to select a maximum of 10-12 players of a high standard.
Successful players will then attend final trials in Nottingham on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 November 11-4 and 10-2 respectively. There is a fee of £20 for the two trial days. If players cannot attend they will not be considered and must attend the full two days.
Players need to be aware if selected for the final squad the cost is £500 per player. This includes training, matches and kit. There will be five weekends in Nottingham, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Surrey. Players will also have to pay for travel and food. AoC Sport will pay for accommodation for all weekends.
If you have a player who you think is of the correct standard but will not be playing in the regional tournament, please let Head Coach Julie Kimber know via Julie.firstname.lastname@example.org and we can organise a scout to go along and look at them.
Details of organisers of the regional tournaments will be released once known.
