Under 10 Age Specific Information

Belwest starts grading players and teams from the Under 10 age group. The transition from Under 9’s to Under 10’s can be difficult, as teams and players from Under 9’s, who have sometimes played together since Under 5, are often split as a result of the grading. The grading process is vital to ensure players and teams are placed in the most appropriate playing level. Whilst grading players into new teams, previous teams and friendship requests are taken into account, the key factor utilised will be based on the players ability.

If a player wishes to be placed in a team solely on friendship requests, this can be requested, but may result in the player playing in a lower level than their ability. Please let the Registrar know prior to the Grading Sessions if a player wishes their friendships groups are to be the primary preference.

Dates of the Grading Sessions can be found in the Key Dates. All players must be registered thru www.playfootball.com.au to attend these Grading Sessions.

Grading and Preseason Team Allocations

Parents should read the Grading Policy and Parent Information to be familiar with Belwest Grading of Junior players Under 10 through Under 12.

All Grading/Preseason Team Allocations are at Latham Playing Fields, players must be registered on Play Football.
