FINDING THE RIGHT PROGRAM FOR YOU OR YOUR CHILD

GRAD YEAR

GRAD YEAR REFERS TO YOUR YOU OR YOUR CHILD'S HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION YEAR. BY CLASSIFYING PLAYERS BY GRAD YEAR - IT ELIMINATES THE CONFUSION DURING SUMMER MONTHS OF TRANSITIONING BETWEEN GRADES. REGARDLESS OF WHAT TIME OF THE YEAR IT IS - THEIR GRAD YEAR WILL NEVER CHANGE.

SKILL LEVEL

THIS IS LIKELY THE MOST IMPORTNAT PIECE OF THE EQUATION. PLAYERS AND PARENTS NEED TO BE EXREMELY REALISTIC AND HONEST REGARDING AN ATHLETE'S SKILL LEVEL. SKILL LEVEL IS NOT THE SAME AS EXPERIENCE. JUST BECAUSE A PLAYERS HAS BEEN PLAYING FOR 5 YEARS - IT DOES NOT MAKE THEM AN ADVANCED PLAYER AND VISE VERSA.

KEEP IN MIND - IT IS EASIER TO MOVE A PLAYER UP THAN DOWN

POSITION

ALL WE REALLY NEED TO KNOW IS IF A PLAYER IS A FIELD PLAYER (FP) OR A GOAL KEEPER (GK)

 

AS FAR AS WHAT POSITION A FIELD PLAYER PLAYS - IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER. 

KEEP IN MIND - IF WE DON'T HAVE THE BALL, WE'RE ALL ON DEFENSE AND IF WE DO HAVE THE BALL, WE'RE ALL ON OFFENSE
