Coaching Staff will inform players when they have become an 'Elder'. Assessment includes dedication to the academy, being on time, not missing sessions or matches, being a good teammate and respecting your coach to name a few. You will also be required to represent Spartans during the season.
If you have attended the academy for two years and have passed relevant assessments you become a 'King/Queen' and can obtain a red
