The Freezone State Cup Squad launched in September 2017. The Squad has its origins in 2012 when Freezone first began its series of ‘State Squad Sessions’ with a qualified coach in an attempt to break into the Div 2 level of State Cup Play. This catered for players who wanted to train together as a group and push themselves to play at a higher level.
In 2017, the club moved to a new format of training with a new head coach and ‘representative ethos’ to play at the Div 1 level and via a selection process, picking our top players to train together as a true squad with 2 teams representing the club at the State level. This new initiative for the club is in place to encourage a high level of competition, training and play for members.
This squad commits to competing in the State Cup series as well as other interstate tournaments in the Div1/Div2 level of competition.
The squad is selected from trials held in March and September of each calendar year. Our head coach selects individuals to make up a squad who train together every week at the advanced level, pushing individual skills as well as harnessing a supported team environment. Squad members commit to trainings and competitions and receive specific training over 2 terms (Mar-Jul/Sep-Nov) at an advanced level.
The squad forms two teams and aims to field the best possible team for each tournament. Members will be allocated a team at the discretion of the head coach for each tournament.
To gain entry into the squad, you must attend the try-outs at the commencement of each term and be selected by the Head Coach.
Non members of Freezone can apply to be selected with the Squad at our selection trials but must become finanical members if they are selected.
The Squad has a Head Coach, an Assistant Coach/Team Manager who facilitates entries, tournaments, travel and administrative needs of the players and team.
Squad members pay an extra fee to be part of this initiative and all members must be registered Freezone Members.
