U5-U8 FORMATION OF TEAMS
For U5-U8, Terrigal United permits teams to self form.
U5-U7 Max 6 players (4 players on the field)
U8 Max 9 players (GK + 6 players on the field)
All teams should have at 1 least substitution for the season.
From experience: 2 is ideal
Once you have formed a team, or the nucleus of a team, present together (one parent per player mandatory) to the Team Allocation Night.
If you are requiring players we will match you with players looking for a team. The balance of players will be assembled into teams on the night
New Players or those that are not attached to a team should present at the Allocation night so they can be put into a team. These newly formed teams will require a coach and manager to be appointed on the night
Teams in U6, U7 and U8 will need to nominate themselves into an appropriate level based off previous season or knowledge of players.
Advanced and intermediate nominations in U8 will be invited to a light grading session to ensure the level is being assessed correctly. We will advise on this session in the coming period.
U7 Self Grading Guide
Turtles (Beginners) / Lobster (Intermediate) / Stingray (Advanced)
U8 Self Grading Guide
Octopus (Beginner) / Jellyfish (Intermediate / Whales (Advanced)
The next step is to attend to submit your team or attend our team allocation session.
This year, we are streamlining the team allocation process to make it easier for our members. For the teams that have already organised a coach, manager and players, you will be able to register your team online here.
NOTE: Coaches and Managers should confirm with all players they they have registered before submitting the form.
For those new to the club or are seeking a team, please join our online Facebook group via this link where you can look to find a team for your child or advertise that you need a player to join yours.
Players who are seeking a team (or teams short of players) will attend a Team Allocation Night on Monday 1st March (location TBC) between 5.30pm – 6.30pm for U5 and U6 and 6.45pm – 7.45pm for U7 and U8.
U9-12 Skills Acquisition Phase Grading and Team Requests
Our Club philosophy is that we want to field highly competitive teams but find the right balance to encourage participation as football experiences a drop off in numbers over the the course of U10-U12 and beyond.
We understand that some players and their families will want to play in the best possible team but also recognise that many players and their families do not have their sights set on the top teams.
Players that are not wanting to play in the top teams can use the Grading Request Form to let TUFC know of groups of players that would like to remain together. Please read the conditions on that form. No requests will be taken for A/B grade teams.
Coaches Expression of Interest can be left for the Club Captain via this form
