Congratulations on being selected into the Norwood Flames 2023/2024 season squads.
The Junior “Preseason/Grading Season” is due to commence from the 19th/20th/21st of October. This provides us ample opportunity to hold an internal trial before holding team trainings prior to the start of the season.
For season 2023/2024 will be breaking age groups into the Blue Squad (Teams 1-4) and Red Squad (Teams 5-8) and we will see these teams train side by side. Blue Squads will train twice per week and Red Squads will train once. However during the trial period all squads will train twice per week while we work through selections.
Trials will start from the 11th of September. Training times and days are on the squad list below.
Once teams are selected (or close to) we will update everyone on their training times for the remainder of the year. We unfortunately lose our Sunday booking at the Arc until we return in 2024 so will be using external venues from October to December.
Our coaching team has worked over the last couple of days reviewing the previous years team placement, team’s results and coaches feedback to form the squads for internal trials. We are strongly encouraging player movement during this time and even after teams are selected we will continue to encourage player movement to ensure team selections are correct and players are getting the best development possible.
If you have any concerns around your child’s placement or the development pathway then please reach out to either Will or Lachlan and we will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

During Internal Trials we ask that all players wear their playing tops and bring a Blue, Red and White singlet to train in.
