Player Evaluation (Honeycutt Road Park)


In an effort to provide more balanced teams, players in the 8U-17U divisions will participate in a player evaluation at Honeycutt Road Park (101 Fitness Drive).  At the player evaluations, players will participate in a series of drills to determine the player's skill level. The results of these evaluations are confidential and are not shared with the players and parents. Players will need to arrive that their designated times (times are posted below and will be emailed to parents), check in and go through the evaluation drills. Players should wear t-shirt, shorts and athletic shoes/cleats and must wear shin guards with socks. Bring water, sunscreen and bug spray. Parents may want to bring a small folding chair for themselves and their player as they wait. Once the player has completed the evaluation, they are free to leave.  All players and coaches should attend skill assessments.  If you are unable to attend, your child will be randomly assigned to a team.
