National Age Group Tournament 2017
The NAGT squads will be the strongest age grade players in the given age grades from across the Football South Federation including players from Southland, Central Otago, South Canterbury and Otago.
It’s important to note that not all players that trial will be successful in gaining selection to the NAGT squads. Due to the large volume of players trialing the process will be ‘selected’ OR ‘non-selected’.
Please Note: Players not selected will not receive written or verbal feedback. We recommend only attending the trial process if you believe your child is close to the top 18 – 24 players in their age grade across the federation.
We ask parents and coaches to be realistic with expectations, a maximum of 17 players per age group will be selected and travel away to tournament. To confirm not all players that attend trial will be selected, its important all players, parents and clubs are aware of this prior to trials.
The selection process is for the current season, players selected to NAGT in 2016 are not guaranteed selection in 2017 and likewise players not selected in 2017 may be selected in 2018.
Prior to registration please be realistic in relation to your child’s current ability level. If you are unsure of the level please feel free to get in contact with Paul O’Reilly email@example.com
