  • Team Formation Process: We form evenly skilled teams via a combination of skill ratings and team formation practices. Each child’s skill rating was given to them by their coach from the previous season (if they played last year) and/or the rating the parent/guardian gave their child during the registration process. All kids get placed on a team and receive equal playing time. 
  • Team Formation Practices: Aug 8, 9, 10, 11: The purpose of this is to help form evenly skilled teams. Coaches will be running drills while evaluating skills. After the “Team Formation Practices” end, coaches will work together to form evenly skilled teams (with oversight from Zeeland Rec staff). Participants must attend at least 3 of the 4 “Team Formation Practice” dates.
