January National Training

06 Jan 2020

Please note that Levels 1 and 2 National Training in January will take place on 11th January at Bushfields Sports Centre at the times listed below.


Time Table for 11th January:

Level 1 – 10:00 until 13:00 hours

Level 2 – 12:00 until 15:00 hours


The quality of the Levels 1 and 2 training will be greatly improved because more time and focus can be given to individual players. Those players who are then considered ready for trial at Level 3 will be invited to the appropriate session 18th January (National Training Weekend). It is essential that players attend this additional Level 2 session to be considered for level 3.

I will require an email confirmation as we need to have the numbers for this to be effective training for all .


I have attached the list of players for you to see which level your child is currently assessed at and to ensure that your son/daughter attends the right session.


These training sessions will take place on an alternative weekend to Levels 3, 4 and 5, which will remain on 18th January.

Due to the increasing player numbers attending National Training at all levels I am making this change to create more time for levels 3, 4 and 5 with players being split across four training groups. These four sessions will enable me to group players not only by ability and experience, but by the various project groups we have underway. This is designed to ensure all players get the best from their training sessions and enable me to have time to fully focus on the requirements of each group. Sessions will therefore have a tactical focus and each group will have future team objectives in mind.


Please be aware that the list of players for each group will be announced shortly and that each will contain a mixture of appropriate level players.

For instance;

Group 1 will contains invites from Level 2 and players from level 3

Group 2 will contain Level 3 and Level 4 players

Group 3 will contain Level 4 and Level 5 players

Group 4 will contain Level 4 and Level 5 players


I hope you will agree this is a very positive change for National Training and will be very helpful in achieving our objectives at every Level. Please be assured that whilst this trial will involve additional Sports Centre costs and less players in each session, the player charges will not be changed. This is purely to focus on the quality of the training and the objectives I have in mind.


Depending on the player attendance and general response to this first month, I would like to do the same in future months provided the Sports Centre is available and there is no clash with regional tournaments.
