Grading and Allocation

Eschol Park FC will hold grading for U8 Macarthur SAP and all teams in Division 1 from U12 to U18. With new MFA grading rules from the 2021 season, team nominations need to be submitted to MFA for U12 and above in early February, and for all Mini and SSG teams by the late February.


Consequently, team grading and allocation will be hold before the deadline to enable us to place players of similar ability in teams together to assist with their enjoyment and personal development in the game.


The grading policy can also be found at this link  hosted/org/261/docs/14ab67da/Grading%20policy.pdf

Note: all players must be registered before the appropriate grading date.
