Junior Gunners

Apply for 2022/23 Ball Squad Trials

We’re now recruiting talented, motivated and committed Junior Gunners to be part of our elite ball squad, starting in August 2022! 

The ball squad is an integral part of every Arsenal home matchday, who assist the First Teams by keeping the game flowing from their pitch-side seats. Our 20-person team are exclusively Young Guns Members, so if you're a JG who will be aged 12-16 in Season 2022/23, we want to see you at trials. 

Trials will take place in mid-May at the Arsenal Hub, right next to Emirates Stadium. Where you’ll be tested on your throwing and catching ability, teamwork, leadership, discipline and much more. For your chance to join us, please complete the form below.

Trial places are limited so let us know why you would be the best ball squad member and why you should be selected. If we are over subscribed, selection will be based on your application so make sure to fill in as much detail as possible.

Please note: You must be available to attend every fixture held at Emirates Stadium in Season 2022/23. This includes all Men's. Women’s, Under-23's games and Youth Cup matches held at the Emirates Stadium. After all night games, a parent/guardian will be required to pick you up at Emirates Stadium.

The deadline to send your application is Sunday 24th April at 11:59PM (UK time) and entry is open to paid Junior Gunners Members, who will be aged 12-16 years only in Season 2022/23 only. Please use your Junior Gunners Membership details and ensure you have parental permission to apply. If selected, successful invites will be sent to the email address registered to your Junior Gunners account and final date and trial times will be included in your confirmation email. Information about how Arsenal handles personal data is available at www.arsenal.com/privacy-policy.
