Skills Assessment is used to help us try to create evenly balanced teams. It’s more fun for players when teams are of, or close to, equal ability. Prior to each season, new (and some returning) participants in the Under 7, Under 8, Under 10, Under 12 and Under 14 age groups must participate in a 15-minute mandatory Skills Assessment in order to complete registration. The mandatory skills assessment will be held on a Saturday morning usually a week or two after the Final Registration date. The Skills Assessment date will be published on the Registration page and calendar. Due to the short timeline to build the teams, there are no make-up dates.
There is no skills assessment for the U5 and U6 participants. Age and gender are taken into consideration during team building as well as parents’ and coaches’ skills assessment.
While creating evenly balanced teams is not an exact science, our goal is to try to create a more enjoyable experience for the participants.
