Any juniors not placed in either the 1st or 2nd squads will trial for the junior squads.


Trials 1st , 2nd X1 & 3rd X1 Teams only (ie Open to all seniors and good juniors)

Sunday 18th February - WGC Field - 9.30am - 11.30am 
1st Trial 
1. Data collection to be used as immediate performance indicators for three main sources being acceleration, lateral and agility  
-  0 to 20m to 40m line speed from static start. This tells acceleration capability i.e quick start or faster  once started.  
-  T-test lateral test, tells  change of direction movement, how the body moves sideways, and how sharp.  
-  Obstacle agility test, again movement specific but joins all relative body movements and motion into a collective aimed at                coordination and speed.    

Trialists will then attempt to kick a ball over the half way line. i.e ball must be in air and go between two markers. This is        another quick opportunity to see how well a ball can be delivered.
2.  Attitudes are very easily observed during these exercises and is almost as important as the exercise itself. Character is often viewed best in these sole run tasks.
3.  Confidence identification - annual improvement for individuals to gauge. Times recorded will be used the following year as markers.  

Sunday 25th February - St Pats College Turf Kilbirnie - 9.30am - 11.30am 
2nd Trial  
- Short games on a full sized turf 
- All trialists in preferred positions where possible
