U10-U18 Grading

U10 to U18 grading for 2024 starts this Friday 23/2/2024 at either Giralang or Kaleen, depending on the age group. Check the times hereJimmy Kanaridis and his technical team will be overseeing the grading.

It is recommended that all players attend grading, it helps us place players in the most suitable teams/divisions to ensure everyone enjoys the season, whether hoping to be placed in a higher division or in a friendship group/team. It is also a good opportunity to kick the ball around.

  • Players must be registered to grade.
  • Players wishing to grade into a higher division must attend all sessions for their age group.
  • Players are to check in 15 minutes before the session.
  • Players are to wear shin pads.
  • UPDATE: There will be no separate goalkeeper specific sessions. Goalkeepers will be assessed during their age group sessions.

U5-U9 Continuing Players

A quick note for U5-U9 continuing players. Belnorth always keeps teams together in these age groups unless requested otherwise, so you don’t need to let us know your child wants to stay in the same team. Only contact us, if you want your child to try a different team in 2024.

The best contacts for these age groups are:
