Junior Competition U12 – U14 – U16

Does my child need to nominate a team?

No, U12, U14 and U16  players will trial various teams in the first two weeks of competition. At the end of the second week, they will be allocated a team to train and play with for the rest of the season.  This process ensures a balanced competition.

Teams are constructed by the Maryborough Magic Committee and Coaches to provide a competitive balance to the competition. Suitable for both new and experienced players, teams will be created over the first two weeks of the season. No club teams will be formed. It is expected that players will be shuffled across teams to create a balanced, development driven, competition amongst teams. As new players enter the competition they will be allocated a team and shuffled dependent on impact to the competition. As the teams are finalised, players will then be allocated a coach, stay with their team to build team skills and be allocated a training time slot.
