Trials: Trials will be held after school at Tauranga Girls College Fields 1 and 2.  Girls attending Summer Sports Tournaments should prioritise those tournaments and preparation for them and should advise Mr Wallis ASAP if they cannot attend Football trials. Incumbent positions are not guaranteed and selection will be based around trialist skill and playing record.  Trialists will play in short tournament style games on trial days. They will select preferred positions on their registration form and selectors will observe play in those or similar positions as much as possible during trials. Trialled positions are not gauranteed upon selection for any team but will remain the ongoing decision of the coaches





All teams

Tues 4th  April

3.30 – 5.30

All Teams

Wed 5th April

3.30 – 5.30


Year 9 players trialling for the 1st XI should have been playing in BOP U14 reps or similar in 2016. Trial times will be confirmed in the Daily Notices and via email.  If students are unavailable for trial dates please email Mr Wallis at dwallis@tgc.school.nz  with reasons. Students are not guaranteed a particular team and those trialling are expected to join a team as allocated by the selection panel.  Teams will be announced on Thurs 13th April.


Under 14 and Junior A  We will try to identify possible teams for these age groups but will only run them if the WAIBOP Football draw reflects similar categories. This year some local clubs are running under 16 teams in the Federation (FTC) league on Sundays so this is also an avenue for advancement for enrolled school players. Our coaches will nominate players for these leagues based on attitude, commitment, skill and positional play record
