Player Evaluations 8/14-8/16

The Fall 2018 soccer season it just around the corner with opening day in 2 weeks, August 25. We are currently in the process of finalizing our divisions and number of teams. In order to best build fair and balanced teams within each age division we will be holding player evaluations for divisions 10U-14U next week. Players skills will be accessed during a series of scrimmages, and then teams will be created based on their ratings. Our goal is to make sure each team has an even number of players of all skill levels and that all teams are competitive at the beginning of the season. Afterwards, we expect that team success will vary during the season depending on the individual development of the players and effectiveness of the coach.
It is crucial that as many coaches as possible attend and participate in the evaluation process for their divisions. Afterwards coaches will get together to be a part of the team building process to ensure fairness and transparency. Please contact your division coordinator if you are unable to attend.
Below is the schedule for evaluations. Please note that the check in and evaluation times are staggered each day, where boys will be evaluated first and then the girls. Divisions were organized based on the number of players and to even out the number of players each day.
All players must arrive on time for check in and have cleats, shin guards, and water.
Evaluations will be held at the soccer fields at Santa Ynez Elementary.
