Season 2018 End + 2019 Season Info

Friday 24th August: NSM SAP/GSAP - End of Season Presentation at Norths in Cammeray. 6:30pm start.

Training will finish on grass fields and Thomson Oval this week ending 24th August. Northbridge Oval can continue until week ending 31st August for teams who are scheduled there ordinarily. While we don’t have SAP / GSAP training scheduled for the September/October period prior to trials, we will have Pro-Zone sessions available during the week and in the school holidays as extra sessions for the SAP age groups.

2019 Season - this is how we anticipate the selection process for our 2019 teams:

a) Players will be provided with a retention or a re-trial letter shortly after the Presentation night. Retained players will be required to lock in their spot with an early part-fee payment.

b) We aim to have SAP / GSAP coaches appointed before Trials.

c) Trials for next season will be conducted during the FNSW SAP/GSAP Trials period - dates TBC, but anticipated time frame is from the 21st October.

d) Program start: 5th November, twice a week for 6 weeks. Break for holidays with a restart in February 2019.

We are still sourcing a venue for pre-christmas training as NBO is likely to still be out due to re-surfacing. An update will be provided when available.
