  • 2 consistently demonstrated the correct mental attitude and displayed good character at all times
  • 3 engaged in all classroom tasks and activities
  • 4 demonstrated appropriately high football skills and fitness

The Panel will then decide whether to recommend the player attends professional football club trials in Portugal or Spain.
The Panel will consist of the IHM senior coaching team.
