8th Grade Teams will play two back-to-back 20-minute games on Saturday mornings at Madills Farm.

  • 8th Grade Girls: Game 1 at 10am and Game 2 at 10:25am

Games are played on 1/6 of a field, with smaller yellow goals and a size 4 ball.

Each team has approximately 5 members and are allocated by the grade coordinators. Team requests can be made on your registration form, but please be aware that you may not always get your requested team.

PLEASE NOTE that teams may request a maximum of 7 players. If your team lists more than this the club may reallocate a player at random to a team in need of players. We cannot guarantee that your team of 5-7 players will be put together however our VOLUNTEER grade coordinators will do their best depending on player and team numbers.

 

Please refer to the 8th Grade Rules for game day etiquette.

PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT

Each in-house team requires volunteers for coach and manager, with other parents rostered to set up and take down the goals. We encourage teams to organise their own training sessions throughout the week to prepare for game day.

All parents/spectators (excluding coach) are expected to stay outside of the lines of the full-size field during games to avoid damage to the grounds.
