Grading for our 10s to 18s Community teams is now complete for 2020. Teams will be announced shortly.
What is Community Grading?
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 commence in February each year. Dates, times, age groups and locations are advised in January.
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.
New Format for Junior Community ACT
There is a new format in the Capital Football League this year for our Community Juniors. Club teams for ages 10-18 will now be assessed via an ACT grading system to determine which division our community juniors teams are best suited for.
What does that mean for GUFC?
(1) We will still be grading individual players to place them into what we will refer to as our Division 1 and Division 2 teams (see Community Grading above and the need for you to enroll for grading)
(2) Our resulting Division 1 and Division 2 teams will then attend the Capital Football grading rounds on the 1st weekend in April for competition placement by Capital Football in the ACT community junior league. Which means they will ultimately determine which division our teams will play in.
This is a new system for all of us. We appreciate your patience as we learn more about it and we’ll continue to communicate with you as to the process(es)
