This age group is structured as a "developmental" bracket; this means divisions are not seeded, there are no play-offs (Jamboree instead), clubs request team placements and may opt to have mixed ability and/or co-ed teams too.

Results are published but there are no standings publicly recorded, club DoC's will receive off-line standings at end of season to aid their internal assessments.

This age group is also likely to have first-year referees officiating, parents and coaches are expected to support their development too. If there are any issues never voice them at the game - contact the league director who will assign referee mentors as needed.
