The Majura trials were hugely competitive this year as we saw returning players who had developed their skills last season and over summer and some new talented players join the Club. We again used Coerver Coaching to assist with trials and run drills and games that would test the four core skills and game skills. This enables selectors to concentrate on the players and give a more thorough assessment of each triallist. This year Olympic FC also provided Premier League coaches to select alongside Majura FC selectors which again improved selector assessments.
The team that you have been placed in has been based on a variety of factors including,
your performance at the recent trials
final recommendations from a minimum of two (2) trial selectors
when we needed further confirmation, recommendations from past Coaches
a preference to play in a competitive or social division
The divisional structure for the U12-18 teams has been changed by Capital Football this year to accommodate the growth in players and teams and to make it easier for participants to understand. For the past five years teams have been placed into either Division 1, 2a/blue, 2b/gold, 3a/blue or 3b/gold. This year the divisions will be just
Due to the high number of trialists Majura FC had in all age groups this year we are running behind schedule in sorting teams from selectors assessments. We told trialists that teams would be announced by March 5 but this has now been put back until Friday March 9. We know that there will be some anxious players and parents but we need to make sure we have checked everything with both selectors and in some cases, previous coaches. We are very fortunate to have so many good players attending trials this year so even though that’s a good thing it does make team selection a little harder.
Thanks for your patience.
