Junior and Intermediate trial dates
We are holding our initial pre-season trials for our Junior and Intermediate teams on Sunday 30th June 2019 between 10am – 4pm at Kent County Cricket Ground, Beckenham.
This trial is for all players from Years 7-11, regardless of which team they may have been in in previous seasons.
The final trials will take place on Sunday 1st September 2019 at Kent County Cricket Ground. The trials will run from 10am – 2pm and 2pm – 6pm. We will be in touch nearer the time with details of the slot your child will be allocated to.
Please note that those trialling will need to attend at least one of the two trials to be considered.
Senior trial date
We are looking to hold our Senior Trials on Sunday 1st September 2019 at Kent County Cricket Ground and the times will be confirmed nearer the time.
Please note that we will also be trialling for our U14 and U16 Junior County League teams that will compete alongside the above squads and those people selected for these teams will be notified at the same time.
What does being a Squad member involve?
If your daughter is selected into the Beacons squads we expect a high level of commitment. We expect the girls to be at the appropriate training session every week and to be available for matches on Saturdays at Bromley High School.
Training sessions from September 2019 will be as follows at St Dunstans College:
Junior: Thursday evenings 6.30pm – 8.30pm (Pending facility confirmation)
Intermediate: Thursday evening 6.15pm – 7.45pm (Pending facility confirmation)
Senior: Tuesday evenings 7.30pm – 9.15pm (Pending facility confirmation)
Sign ups and attendance at our trials are extremely high (for the 2018/19 season, 80 players came to trial for 40 places in our junior squads) so please be aware that not all attendees will be selected. Being part of a Beacons squad is highly competitive with matches at a high level of play, so please consider this when deciding to register.
Please note that you are not guaranteed a place if you have been in a squad already. We do ask that parents manage expectations of players as we do not want the trialling process to be a negative experience for anyone if they are not selected this year.
Trialling for the squads is completely optional, if you do not want to trial this year our training academies will be running as usual, details and bookings for these will follow later in the year.
If you have not previously been a member of Beacons Netball, either through our squads or academy programme, please email us directly on firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about attending the trials.
The deadline for trial registrations for ALL AGE GROUPS is Thursday 20th June!
