Trialling At Sheen Lions

12th January 2020: for the current 2019-20 season we are no longer taking new members into our development age groups (U11 and younger). If you are interested in joining Sheen Lions please email registrations@sheenlions.org with your child’s full name and date of birth asking that we place you on a list to invite you to our Summer Soccer Six that will run in June and July. Details of the 2020 SS6 can be seen here.

Players considering joining the Club may attend one or two training sessions to try without any fee. However before attending any Sheen Lions training session you must register your details with us.

Players wishing to try will be sent an email invite to register for a “Trial” squad. No payment is required and of course you will not need to wear the official Sheen Lions training kit at the sessions.

  • Players that are U11 or younger can request a trial by emailing registrations@sheenlions.org. Please state the Player’s full name and date of birth.
  • Players that are U12 or older should approach a manager of the appropriate age group to ask if there are any opportunities. Contact details are here.

For the development age groups (U11 or younger) the trial is firstly on your part as the Club does not turn away players in these age groups and you will be able to join and continue after your trial if you wish. Your invite to join may however be for a Cubs Squad, please refer here to understand what this means. If you are joining during the season then the Cubs squad is the most likely outcome to start.

For the competitive age groups (U12 or older) Sheen Lions manager and coach will decide after the trial whether they are able to offer you a place to continue.

You should contact us at least three days before the session that you are hoping to attend so that there is sufficient time for you to Register and for us to process your application. Asking the day before is likely to lead to disappointment.

  • Development age groups (U11 and younger) train on Saturday mornings at Palewell, check the team page for your age group for the time of the session.
  • Competative age groups (U12 and older) train on mid week evenings at the Bank of England Sports Centre (or at Palewell after Easter), check the team page for your age group for the day and time of the session. Note that the the Bank Of England is an all weather pitch and Astro type boots are required.
