Player Assessments

The goal of player assessments is to find those players who can have a positive impact during game situations and to place every player on a team with other players of similar individual abilities. The proper placement of players is critical to creating a positive soccer environment for every player. Technically proficient players who cannot perform in traffic or when under pressure should not be placed on top teams. In contrast, some players whose technical skills may not be as advanced as others, but whose athletic skills and understanding of the game is advanced, should be challenged in an optimal environment to develop technical skills and to help the team.

Attendance is mandatory to be considered for a Travel team. Attending an assessment does not guarantee a player a position on a Travel team.

Excused Absences

A player will be permitted to miss an assessment for good cause (e.g. illness, injury, or unavoidable family obligation). In the event that a player cannot attend an assessment, an email must be sent to the Travel Director indicating the reason for the absence prior to the assessment. If the Travel Director finds the excuse acceptable, the player will be eligible for consideration by the Lead Evaluator.
