Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the deadline for nominating?
The deadline for nominating players is Friday, 14 October 2022 in all representative sports.
If I am nominated will I automatically make it through to the trials?
In football all nominated players can attend trials. In hockey and netball if we are oversubscribed then institutions may be contacted to obtain further information and evidence to enable shortlisting, although in hockey if we are hugely oversubscribed then we will run 2 trials dates one in early November and one in late November.
Is there a charge to attend the trials?
To attend the netball trials there is a £20 fee per player for full member colleges. For associates this is covered in your fee to access the representative trial process which covers all representative teams. Both the football and hockey trials are free to attend for colleges and for associates this is covered in your fee to access the nomination process.
Is there a charge to be part of the representative team?
If you are selected and accept your place on the representative team you will need to pay a fee, as the representative teams are self-funding programmes. The fees for this season are:
