What are Skill Evaluations?
Skill Evaluations are the tool we use to rank all players. SYA strives to develop basketball players in a competitive environment. Our philosophy is to form teams of comparable strength to ensure fun, fair, competitive games. To meet this objective SYA uses a three-step process.
- The first step is a relatively brief skill evaluation – where coaches can measure the skills of all the players.
- The second step is to compile the skill evaluations, rank the players, and publish the results to the coaches.
- The third step is an open draft, where our coaches, guided by their notes and the overall rankings, select players in a round-robin manner.
While not perfect, this method creates relatively balanced teams. It is imperative that all players attend their skill evaluation. We have included one make-up night per league in an attempt to ease schedule conflicts.
Who Must Attend Skill Evaluations?
All players from 4th Grade up must participate in a skill evaluation. If you know you cannot attend the skill evaluations – please contact your League Commissioners to discuss your situation. WARNING – If you do not attend a skill evaluation or its make-up – you may not be placed on a team. For Summer 2017 only 5th Grade and higher will have a Skill Evaluation.
