Minute(s)

:

Second(s)

Where possible, grading will be done by 2-3 graders over 2 training/grading sessions. At least 2 of the 3 graders must be independent of the SMNC committee. All graders must not have their own children playing in the year group they are grading.

To reduce any anxiety that some players may experience throughout the process, prepare your players by talking to them about:

* showing what they can do! Which 3 positions will show them at their best?
* preparing (if they’re a shooter, practice some shots before starting); having plenty of water and going to the toilet beforehand
* trying their best and getting on with it if things don’t go to plan.  Graders will not see everything but they will remember those that persist
* having fun and remembering that no matter what team they are selected for, they get to play one of the best games in the world!

Full details can be found in our Handbook

Please arrive at 3:30pm with a full water bottle and a great attitude, to warm-up and prepare.
