Now that the teams are beginning to come together it is important that all Coaches ensure that they and their assistants on the team have the right qualifications and that they have people to fill the various roles required for each team.
It is essential that each International team in age groups from U13's up have a certified Level 1 Sports Trainer and a Team Liaison / Manager. Referees have been instructed to ensure that International level teams have these two positions before a game can commence. Ideally, all teams in any age group from U6's will have these positions filled.
