As children progress from mini-Colts they will be placed in a dedicated squad with a team name. If the team stay together, they will retain this team name as they move through the year groups.
Sometimes teams may disband and every effort is made to place players in other teams within their year group.
In addition, as teams progress from 5-a-side to 7-a-side, then to 9-a-side and finally 11-a-side, this requires some forward planning to ensure teams have enough players. This sometimes means that teams will merge or change, but again every effort is made to place players in a team within their year group.
