From the EPSCA website:

'EPSCA runs the England Under 11 Team and the England Girls’ Under 11 Team. To be eligible for selection in 2018 players should have been born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2008 (i.e. Aged 9 or 10 on 31 August 2017).'

 

Children in school years 5 & 6 have the opportunity each year to qualify for the England Under 11 Squad. In order to do so, they must either:

1.  Be nominated by their County (1 place only), or

2.  Qualify by 'good results' in at least 2 of a number of 'Pre-Trial' competitions held around the country. These 'Pre-Trial' events are marked '**' on the Events Calendar. Those who do well in these 'Pre-Trial' events are invited in April to take part in a final competition - the 'EPSCA Under 11 Team Trial'. Players scoring 3 points or more out of 5, or 3.5 points or more out of 6 in this event are invited to join the England Squad.
