Under 15 Girls Leinster Interprovincial Trial Process


Dear Teacher,


In preparation for an up/coming International tournament to be held in England next year, FAI Schools will be holding an Under 15 Interprovincial competition in November 

This Interprovincial competition will be a crucial part of our selection process for our FAI Schools International squad

An important first step in this process will be the selection of a Leinster Schools squad

As usual all coaches in affiliated schools are invited to nominate players to attend initial trials in this regard.  When considering nominations please be mindful of the following issues:

Nominated players must be of outstanding ability: We are looking initially for the best in Leinster, but ultimately for the best in Ireland.  We would not expect more than 3 players from any school:

Schools are not obliged to nominate anybody. The standards are very high.

This is a trial process and not a coaching session. It would be helpful for all concerned if players nominated have a realistic chance of selection.

This is an Under 15 competition. For further queries please contact Rob Ellison at rob.faischools@gmail.com
