Re-grading at redraw

Across the first 3 games (if required).

Re-fixture at round 4 in each season for late team application however we always try to accommodate any late application.

From time to time we will conduct a mid season assessment of the grading to ensure it is correct.

  • Each male identifying player must cover one of the following positions to remain spread across all 3 thirds. One for GS/GA One for GK/GD One for WD/C/WA.

  • You can take the court with 5 players; a min of 1 male identifying player.
