The primary purpose of these sessions is to allow the coaches to get an early idea of the number of players and level of ability for the 2018 season. It is for this reason that your attendance is important. If you are unable to attend please email Victoria Morton so that we know that you are interested in playing for the SHFC Academy in 2018.

It is also important to note that those players who choose not to attend training until later will not be guaranteed a spot in the Academy. Your commitment is fundamental.

We would like to remind everyone that these sessions will not be used as a basis for squad/playing group selection for the 2018 season. We do not want players to feel pressured or nervous at these sessions, as they will not have a significant impact on what playing group they will be in for next season.

All sessions will be held at Cornelian Bay. The dates of the player interest sessions are as follows:

1. Saturday, 11 November 2017

2. Saturday, 18 November 2017

3. Saturday, 25 November 2017

4. Saturday, 02 December 2017
