Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the deadline for nominating?
The deadline for nominating players is Monday, 11 October 2021 in all representative sports.
If I am nominated will I automatically make it through to the trials?
In football all nominated players can attend trials. In hockey and netball if we are oversubscribed then institutions may be contacted to obtain further information and evidence to enable shortlisting.
Is there a charge to attend the trials?
To attend the netball trials there is a £20 fee per player for full member colleges. For associates this is covered in your fee to access the representative trial process. The associate fee to access the representative trial process is a one off fee which allows you to nominate players in all the representative trials. Both the football and hockey trials are free to attend.
Is there a charge to be part of the representative team?
If you are selected and accept your place on the representative team you will need to pay a fee, as the representative teams are a self-funding programme.
