ADDITIONAL SPRING PROGRAM INFORMATION

Evaluations

  • U8: players will not need to attend evaluations and will be placed on teams based on, among other things, the schools they attend.  Our objective is to have equally balanced teams.
  • U10, U12 and U14: players will need to attend at least one evaluation to assure proper team placement.  Our goal is to ensure that each player is placed on a team that best matches her skill set and that will allow each player to grow and develop with teammates of a similar skill level.
  • To ensure an unbiased evaluation, each player will be evaluated by independent contracted evaluators during two sessions.
  • The evaluation committee consists of independent evaluators and RVLC coaches.

“A" Team Versus “B" Team

“A” teams require a full time commitment for practices and games over other spring sports. “B” Teams provide a little more flexibility to accommodate other sports or weekend conflicts (playing time is at coaches discretion if attendance becomes an issue).
