Invitation to Trial to Represent Devon County 16 & Under Ladies at the Inter-County Water Polo Championships

Dear Coach / Parent / Player
Invitation to Trial to Represent Devon County 16 & Under Ladies at the Inter-County Water Polo Championships
Ladies born in 2002 and later are invited to attend a trial to represent Devon in the forthcoming South West Inter-County Championships to be held on the 24th and 25th November 2018 at Millfield School in Somerset. At present we do not know which age groups may be required to attend on which day, and so players are asked to keep both days free at present. In order to attend the trials, players need to:
(a)   Be available to play on the above dates;
(b)   Be a registered member of a Devon based Water Polo Club;
(c)   Register their attendance at the trial by their parent or guardian emailing me (rmcoleman@sky.com) and providing full name, date of birth and parent / guardian contact details; and
(d)   Pay £5 (to be paid at the trial and in cash) to cover the costs associated with the Trial.
The trial will be held at the Plymouth Life Centre on Sunday 4 November, 3-5pm.
Assessment of players will take place in accordance with the established procedures used within the County. If a player cannot attend the trial, then an email explaining the reasons for the player not being able to attend should be sent to me, and an assessment as to selection may be undertaken and may include consultation with any other coach within the County. Please note that the County reserves its position to select players that can attend the trial in preference to players who are not able to attend the trial – but to be applied at the discretion of the selectors.
Please pass on this email to any member of your Club who you feel may be interested in attending the trial.
Yours sincerely
Robert Coleman
