E.P.S.C.A. England Teams
On this page
EPSCA runs the England Under 11 team and the England Girls’ Under 11 team. To be eligible for selection in 2017 players should have been 9 or 10 on 31 August 2016 (i.e. born between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2007).
England Girls’ Under 11 team
Players are selected by the team manager, based on performances at major tournaments throughout the year.
England Under 11 team
Entry to the team trial, held in Liverpool college on 22 and 23 April 2017, is by invitation only. There are two routes to receiving an invitation:
Invitation by nomination
Each affiliated association may nominate their board one player providing they are of the correct age. If the board one player is one of our preselected players (or too young) then board two may be nominated.
Please note, if an association’s board one qualifies through the tournament system, that association DOES NOT get another nomination.
Invitation through good performance at tournaments
Players of the correct age may qualify through good performances at two or more of the pre-selection tournaments listed below. Good performance means finishing the tournament with a score of at least half-a-point better than fifty percent (a final score of at least 3 / 5 or 3½ / 6 for example).
Even if a player is going to be nominated we would strongly recommend that they play in at least two of the selection tournaments.
Pre-trial tournaments for the 2017 EPSCA team trials
