HITP includes both elite camps and sessions in the lead up to trials. All sessions are included in representative fees.

REP ROOKIES

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Yes. Athletes are selected from Representative Trials.

No. Officially Rep Rookie athletes are not an active Representative Player. Therefore the ‘rep rule’ known in local competition does not apply to Rep Rookie athletes. In addition, they are eligible to play in correct age group ie U9s, U10s, U11s or U12s as per year of birth.

The answer is most likely no. Most Hornets representative teams consist of a 1-2 Development Players. Usually a Development Player is moved into a team should an additional player be required.

No. Unfortunately placement can never be guaranteed. However we can advise that players participating in our Rep Rookies Program will become a more dynamic, competitive and skilled player.
