Grading process underway for junior teams

posted in: Juniors, News, Youth

After two days of grading games, Cambridge FC’s junior co-ordinators are busily sorting players into the most appropriate teams for the season ahead.

In an update for parents and guardians, junior co-ordinator Tim Bailey said: “We have completed the 2018 grading for the 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th grade boys and the U10 and U12 Girls.

“Our team is busy going over the results of the grading and will have the teams finalised and players notified of their respective team on March 27. This will include the 8th grade teams while 6th & 7th grade teams will be advised in early April.

“We ask that everyone respects the decisions that have been made as all involved in the grading have put in a lot of effort and time to ensure the process is fair for everyone.”
More than 300 children took part in the grading sessions on March 4 and 11.

Registrations

Junior registrations have closed with the following exceptions:
  • First Kicks players (ages 4-5) can register until the end of April.
  • Registrations for 6th and 7th grade teams close on April 1.
  •  If you have a child wanting to play in grades 8-13 and have not yet registered, please email Cambridge Football Club before trying to register. We’ll do our best to find a suitable team but late registrations depend on availability.

Coaches and managers

We are still looking for coaches and managers across all grades. If you have not made yourself known to the club already and are able to assist with coaching or manager roles please contact either your grade coordinator or email Cambridge Football Club with your name and grade you are interested in helping. We would like all teams from the 6th grade to the 13th grade to have a manager to help the coach.

Child safety

An important part of keeping our kids safe is to require our volunteers to go through the police vetting process. To make sure this process is properly conducted, we need a volunteer to help administrate it. Please email Cambridge Football Club or speak to a member of the junior operations team about it.
