Hawks Team Selection:
When registering your child, please provide any necessary information to assist in team selection, including your accurate training availability. Please see the Team Selection Policy for further details.
Selection and placement
Team Selectors will seek feedback from coaches and observe player performance to make decisions regarding team selection. There are many factors involved in placing teams, including coach availability, player training availability, player skill and development, participation in training and games and friendship requests. Selectors will also look to create balanced teams so looking at a player’s scoring during a season will not give you an indication of which team they will be selected for. Ball handling, defensive skill, court and play awareness and a range of other skills are considered in obtaining a good balance (you cannot have a team full of ball handlers and no rebounders).
Players may nominate up to three friendship requests. Please put the full names of the requests on the registration formto assit the team selectors. The club will endeavour to meet at least one of the nominated friendship requests, provided it is reciprocal and both players have similar training availability, however, this cannot be guaranteed.
Teams will move from season to season and it is a great opportunity for players to widen their friendship groups and meet new people.
While we understand that players have a range of other commitments, please be aware that training availability has a significant impact on team composition. The more available you are, the more likely you are to be placed in a team of similar skill and with known players. While every request will be made to allocate you to training time that suits, this is not always possible.
Feedback on team selection
When you receive your team sheet, you will have one week to make requests for changes. Please do not contact the club directly with your change requests. All change requests should be made through the online form link which was included in the email sent out with team sheets. An outcome will be provided within the first week of grading. The outcome will be final and no further changes will be considered. Please note that while every effort will be made to accommodate requests, movement of one player can have an impact on a number of teams and may not be possible.
