The Trial process is designed for players who would like to be considered for selection by Abbotsford Juniors to play in the Club's Academy (Division 1) Team in each age group. 

Trials are entirely optional and players are not expected to attend should they wish to play for social/friendship purposes only or in a lower division. Players who are not selected for an Academy team will be allocated to a team by the Club in late February / early March 2022, following the registration process.

Players must arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled Trial commencement time to register on the day.  Players should wear boots, shinpads and sunscreen and bring a water bottle.
 

Girls Academy Trials - Important Information for Parents and Players

1. Part of Abbotsford Juniors Football Club's core values is to promote participation and achievement in football at all levels (Respect and Development).  Accordingly, the Club is committed to cater for players who wish to play both at a competitive level and those who play for social/friendship purposes.

2. The Trial process is focussed on providing the platform for competitive players and selecting the Club’s Academy Division 1 team in select age groups.

3. Players do not need to attend a Trial session if they want to play for social/friendship purposes.  The majority of Abbotsford Juniors teams in each age group (ie. non-graded players) will be formed by the Club in late February / early March 2022 upon completion of the registration period. Players who played in a Division 1 team for Abbotsford Juniors in season 2021 do not automatically qualify for that team in season 2022.  That is, all players who aspire to play in these teams in 2022 must attend the Trial sessions in November.

4. If Abbotsford Juniors does not receive sufficient player pre-registrations, the Club may elect to cancel the age group’s Academy Trial session.  Further, if Abbotsford Juniors receives insufficient player interest or ability, the Club may not form an Academy Division 1 team as a result of this process.
 
Trial & Selection Process

1. All players must arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled trial commencement time to register on the day with Club officials and receive a trial number.  Players should wear boots and shin-pads, be wearing sunscreen and bring a water bottle.

5. If required, the Club will announce additional trial dates and times on its website following the grading sessions held in December.

8. Selected players will be offered a place in the Academy team via email.  These offers must be accepted by return email by the deadline date specified.
