Community Grading

Would you like to grade for a Division 1 or 2 team?

From U10s to U18s, GUFC players can choose whether they want to continue down the fun and fitness route by playing with their friends in an ungraded team (Division 3), or they can attend the GUFC grading sessions to be considered for a Division 1 or Division 2 team for a more competitive season with other players keen to play at a higher level.

The aim of the Grading procedure is to place players in a division best suited to their skills and ability.  To ensure an unbiased selection of players, a number of coaches, approved by the GUFC technical team, will supervise and conduct the grading with coaches from last season asked to provide their input where possible.

If you are interested in grading the GUFC grading days will commence in February.  Dates, times, age groups and locations will be advised as soon as possible.   It is possible we will add an extra week/dates at short notice in order to get through all of the grading.

Players are required to attend two sessions so that assessors can grade each player properly.  Some players or age groups may have a third date added if assessors feel the need for further assessment.

To enroll for grading please head to the Grading Enrollment Form. There is no cost to grade for the 2020 season.

Reminder: Players ONLY need to attend grading if they would like to try out for Divisions 1 or 2.

The venue and timing of grading will be advised as soon as possible.  We await our allocation of grounds from the ACT Government.  It is tricky for all clubs at this time of year as we compete against the summer sports for field availability.

For more information about grading you can contact our Coach Coordinators at [email protected]

Note: It is important that players are registered with Play Football and season fees paid with GUFC prior to grading.  Anyone not yet registered for the 2020 season is not covered by insurance in the event of accident or injury until their registration is complete.
