Trial Process

All players must trial within their age group first. A player may be invited to trial at a higher level (after trialling in their age group) based on ability and at the descretion of the selector, coach and the approval of the Representative Committee.

Trialists must attend all trials to be eligible for selection unless dispensation has been given in advance by the Representative Committee (email games@hpnc.org.nz).

Trialists who are injured prior to trials, or become injured during trials, must be seen by an appropriately qualified medical professional and produce a medical certificate to the Representative Convenor including diagnosis and prognosis of the injury in order to be considered for final selection. Injured triallists must still attend all trials, even if they are unable to take the court.

Players who do not attend the first trial without dispensation will be ineligible for the second trial.

At the first trial, all players must confirm their details including preferred positions. Players will be given the opportunity to trial in their first position, and second position if possible.

All players not recalled for a second trial will have played at least twice, and at least once in their preferred position.​​​​​​​

Fees for the 2023 Representative Season are to be confirmed.
