Grading 2020

In line with the MWFA guidelines, CCFC completes individual player grading for all age groups U10 to U16 where there will be more than one team in the age group. This allows us to place players of similar ability in teams together to assist with their enjoyment and personal development in the game.
Please Note: all players must be registered before the appropriate grading date via

Grading for Youth Teams Season 2020

We have only just received some limited pitch allocation from the Council for our youth team grading. With the dry conditions, we do not have access to fields mid-week like in prior years. We will continue to deliver a fair and appropriate grading process utilising a well-established grading methodology and overseen by our most experienced coaches at the club. Thank you for your patience while we awaited pitch allocations. 

MWFA requires the club to grade individual players from U10 and older. All players U10 and older should attend the session for their true age group based on Date of Birth (e.g. 2007 DOB attend U13 grading). Please contact your Age Coordinator (details on our website under Committee) for exceptions to this requirement. 

Also, some age groups may not require grading. Again, your Age Coordinator will let you know if this is the case. The coaches in your age group may wish to use the allocated field space below for a kickaround instead.

Location: As per above details

Clothing: Players should wear comfortable sports clothes and must be wearing shin pads and football boots. Please bring a water bottle and you do not need to bring a soccer ball. 

Format: Sessions will involve a similar approach to last year where the players complete a number of different rotations likely to include 1v1, 3v2, 4v1, and 6v6. For U13 and older we will likely run 11v11 subject to the available fields. 

Graders: The graders are all experience and qualified senior players or coaches from within Curl Curl FC. We have an established system and format for grading which is fun for the kids. Remember though that the graders are all volunteers 

Parents: Parents are welcome to attend. Please observe from a respectful distance and refrain from shouting instructions to your child 

Goalkeepers: Those dedicated Goalkeepers should attend their respective age group session. They may be required to also attend the separate goalkeeper assessment session. Those outfield players who also wish to be considered to play in goal should also attend both their age group session and if required, the goalkeeper assessment session. 

U8s and U9s: There is no grading for U8s and U9s. However those wishing to be assessed to play in the red division teams should attend the respective session above. Please contact your Age Coordinator for more details.

Please familiarise yourself with our approach to grading found on our website under Resources / Grading.
