Grading & Selection Policy

The usual approach to Grading at Sacred Heart Pymble FC is to take into account various considerations including:
(a) the team arrangements from last year (returning players);
(b) skill levels of available players;
(c) friendships and classmates (for those attending the school);
(d) parental wishes
(…in no particular order).

When you stop to think about it, this quickly becomes a very difficult task for the Grading Panel who, despite making every attempt to arrange the best fit for all concerned, cannot please everyone. Therefore we ask you to bring open minds to Grading and the season at large, and help us where possible to “get it right”.

We may also call on parents to help with the drills & skills exercises that we run, so we’d appreciate your ready assistance on Grading Day.
