What are skill evaluations?
• As recreation providers (compared to competitive), we want to ensure families that teams are equitably balanced.
• At third- or fourth-grade (depending on the sport), we conduct sport-specific skill evaluations to assess each player’s skill level.
• Third and fourth grades are when players begin displaying sound fundamentals and separation of playing talent is observable.
• Our goal is not to break up teams that have been playing together, our priority is to “level the playing field” to create balance in all programs.
• Balanced teams are able to play together until sixth grade.
• Exception: Hockey - evaluations are conducted every season due to the wide range of grade levels playing together.
