2021 Nationals Season – EOI Now Open

Ellipsis is seeking expressions of interest from players to compete in the women’s and men’s teams for the 2021 Australian Nationals season.

We cannot wait to get back out onto the field in a COVID-normal world! In 2021, our teams are striving to continue to uphold the Ellipsis values by:

  • Creating an environment for players to grow and develop their skills
  • Upholding elite, competitive and highly spirited behaviours
  • Maintaining respect and promoting gender equity

Those that feel they align to these goals and wish to try out for the Ellipsis women’s or men’s teams should submit an EOI via this link: https://forms.gle/SJsR8KsJgf7aCrs29

Players will be required to attend all domestic tournaments (calendar to be advised) plus 2 team training sessions per week. If this is an issue please outline in the EOI.

Selection Timing
Date: Sunday 13th December 2020
Time: 9am – 12pm
Location: Markham Avenue Reserve, Ashburton

The exact date will be confirmed closer to the selection date. Confirmation will be sent to all those who complete the EOI form.

COVID-safety
Selections will comply with all Government restrictions and return to play guidelines. Social distancing will be observed, and sanitation stations will be available.

More details regarding the precise guidelines will be sent out closer to the selection date.

Physical Preparation
Returning to play after 7 months off will put a huge amount of strain on the body. To minimise your risk of injury, the club is requiring all athletes attending selections to complete a return to play program. If you are already following a program, awesome! If not, don’t worry! Our resident expert, Jodie Palmer, has put together a super accessible S&C program.
