Senior selection policy

 

To manage player numbers and improve development of our juniors the following applies to senior selection.

 

Clause 1:

Senior team selection is based on merit no matter if you are a junior or a senior. It is accepted that juniors may push seniors down a division provided it is in line with Clause 2 below.

 

Clause 2:

No "Full Fee" paying senior may miss a game in favour of a junior.

Juniors may take priority over "10 Game Max" players based on merit.

Clause 3:

If team numbers are expected to exceed 15 players for that round then; 

a) Seniors selected in a higher division that round cannot also be selected also in the lower division.

b) If as in 3a above, there are no seniors playing in the higher division then the least talented Junior/s is to be omitted.

Clause 4:

Juniors are to be considered before seniors wishing to play a second game for the round provided the junior is of sufficient ability.

Clause 5:

Full Fee paying seniors will be given first priority on team selection over 10 game fee paying players no mater the ability.
