Generally, coaches will work together to assign players to teams, including, where required, grading sessions. We understand that parents and players may have a preference about who they play with (taking into account transportation and other reasons). Please make the club aware of your preference as soon as possible – we cannot guarantee that we we can meet your requirements, but will factor theswe where we can.
