The Tier 2 Academy squad also play as the Tai Tam Tigers and the Boys squads are expected to train 2 times per week with matches on Saturday mornings. However, the match day commitments are less than with the Tier 1 teams and are approximately once every 3-4 weeks. The Girls Squads are only required to train once per week with 5 to 6 weekend tournaments over the season. Players showing the right attributes in training and games can be asked to move up to Tier 1 permanently or for certain games or tournaments during the season if they wish.
Our Tier 2 Championship Squads run at U8, U9 and U10 Boys and U8 and U10 Girls. Within the Tier 2 squads, there is one team - The Championship team. This team is not fixed and players can move up to a tier 1 team during the season. Please see the Team Selection section of the Handbook for more information on how these teams are selected.
