Player Assessments for Spring Travel
Objective: To provide an assessment of all our U12 & U14 players so as to help ensure that they are placed on a team, whereby they can maximise their enjoyment. Also to help ensure that they are on a team that meets their developmental needs and level of playing ability.
Summary: Norwell Youth Soccer deploys an evaluation process to provide all U12 and U14 players with a consistent, fair and balanced appraisal to be used to both guide future player development and properly assess the current level of play of each player in our league. Having piloted the evaluation program in 2013, NYS continues to modify and improve the assessment process. Starting in the Fall of 2015 UK Elite has been hired to implement the process agreed to by Norwell Board members.
U12 - The evaluation is a combination of the coaches assessment of all Fall players and an end of season Soccer Showcase run by independent professional coaches.
U14 - The evaluation relies heavily on the coaches assessment of all Fall players.
