Narangba United FC Grading Process

Narangba United Football Club will be carrying out team grading for this Season as to enable us to nominate teams into Football Brisbane’s competitions for the 2017 season.


Why are we grading players??

The primary reason for our Club wishing to grade players is to identify individuals of differing skill levels and encourage them to play in a challenging but enjoyable environment, and to enhance and encourage their football development.

This means that young players are playing in an environment that is intellectually and physically stimulating through education and competition.

But we also remember that the player’s enjoyment playing football comes first above all else.


Our Guidelines:

To ensure that all players being graded are given equal time.

We fully accept that players will want to play with their friends, however the 5 year plan in place for Narangba United FC to be at a SYL level a high priority.  The Komodo Dragons competition is in place to allow experienced players develop their skill and understanding of the game competing at the highest level available for the age group. A Player(s) who do not attend the Trial will Not be considered for the Komodo Dragons Division, unless our Club are notified prior to the trial. In this event a players(s) may have another trial session arranged.


Who carries out the grading sessions?

Team grading will be carried out by our group of Technical Directors, having a group of experienced coaches allows for a majority rules for final decisions.


Grading criteria:

Players will be graded whilst carrying out the 4 Core Skills of the FFA National Curriculum:

  1. Striking the ball
  2. First touch
  3. 1 v 1
  4. Running with the ball

These four skills are the most important factors in determining a young player’s ability level.


All players must wear appropriate training gear, including shinpads, and bring a drink bottle.

It may be possible that players will be requested to help out other Teams during the season as it is the Club philosophy to promote Youth development.
