The Canberra Raiders would like to announce the trial dates for the SG Ball, Harold Matts, Tarsha Gale, Andrew Johns and Laurie Daley competitions which includes the Riverina and Monaro Academies.

The Canberra Raiders recognise and support CRL pathways and our relationship with the Riverina and Monaro Regions, we will be using these trial dates to identify talent that fits into those Academy structures as well as the Canberra Raiders Junior Representative pathways. Players with an interest in either or both pathways should attend these trials.

Squads for all the potential pathways will be selected from the one trial process.

All trials will be held at the Raiders Belconnen in Hardwick Cres, Holt. The following dates apply:

Tarsha Gale Trial – Under 18 Females

Friday 11h October from 5:00pm to 8:00pm (registration opens from 4:00pm).

Sunday 13th October from 9:30am until 3:30pm (registration opens from 8:00am).

All athletes trialling should fill in the on-line registration form and use a credit card to pay the $30 registration fee. The $30 registration fee confirms your commitment to attend the trial and will cover your trial tee-shirt, all participants will keep their allocated shirts at the end of the trial day.

Please ensure you are able to trial before paying the fee as it is non-refundable. All applicants must ensure the correct contact information is supplied, most importantly your e-mail address and mobile phone number. Once you have registered you are automatically selected as attending the trial.

Trial day requirements:

You will need to bring playing attire such as football boots, shorts and socks. Mouthguards are strongly recommended as is any other protective wear you would normally use in a game. We will have Trainers available to assist with your strapping needs, please supply your own strapping tape. If you require strapping please come to the administration desk around opening time. A numbered trial shirt will be allocated to you, it is important you don’t swap it as this is how you will be identified during the trial process. This shirt is yours to keep after the event.

It is important you report to the administration desk upon arrival & register in order to get your trial shirt. Players without a trial shirt will not be permitted to trial. Once registered you will be advised where to assemble and a coach will take you to your designated group.

On-line registrations close on Sunday 6th of October, late registrations will not be accepted.
