Exeter Youth Soccer Association – Fall 2015 Player Evaluations

Dear Exeter Youth Soccer Players and Families:

EYSA is pleased to announce that Player Evaluations for the Fall 2015 season will be held during the weeks of May 18th and May 25th  Again this year the evaluations will be conducted fully by Reading United Player Development Program.  The purpose of these evaluations is to give an independent analysis of each player's ability to compete at the highest level, plus to help the Coach and Player Development committee to create more skill level appropriate trainings for the fall season.

Our expectation of the players is that they will attend each of the evaluation sessions for their registered age group in order to be properly evaluated.  In order to be eligible for the highest-level team, the player must attend both evaluation session(s) for their age group.  In the event your son or daughter cannot attend their scheduled session for their age group, please refer to the bottom of this web page of this memo for directions.  Simply not showing up for evaluations will place your son or daughter on the lowest level team fielded for their age group.

It is extremely important that all new participants, and especially the U9 players, attend all evaluations for their group so they can be properly evaluated for their first full year participating within our club’s travel program. All Travel Players U9-U12 will need 2 mandatory evaluations.

If you believe that your son or daughter has the ability to play on a top level travel team one age group older than their normal age, please contact the appropriate boys/girls’ director prior to evaluations to discuss and to possibly set up his or her attendance at the higher level session in addition to your registered level.  Playing up means the player will be rostered as a primary player one level higher than his/her normal age group, and will not practice or play games with classmates or friends of the same age.  Please consider these factors when choosing to have your child play up. 

You may not arrive at a different session without getting on that night’s attendance list by the director.

On evaluation days please observe the following guidelines:

  • Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your evaluation time as players will check-in, be assigned a colored pinnie, and warm up.
  • Check-in table closes at 5:55 for the 1st session & 7:15 for the 2nd session.
  • Bring a small (Passport size) photo of the player, labeled with their name and age group. We will need this for their Soccer Player Pass for the league.  This photo will not be returned.
  • Shins guards are mandatory and soccer cleats are highly recommended.  No jewelry.
  • Please bring refreshments for your son or daughter.
  • Do not bring soccer balls. They will be provided by the club.
