CYS teams participate in a travel league called BAYS (Boston Area Youth Soccer) for players in grades 3-8. For this program, we try to "level" our teams so that players are playing with teammates at their own level, and they play against teams that are appropriately leveled from other cities and towns. Our travel teams have two-year age groups, therefore, teams automatically change every year.
For our team formation process, we use two data sets to assess our players before placing them on a team: (1) we have coaches, from our in-town program and our BAYS teams, fill out evaluations of their current players and (2) we do an on-field play assessment, with impartial evaluators watching the kids play small sided games - we call this event "field placements". We then have a small committee put together teams based on the information they have from coach evaluations and the field evaluations. All kids who want to play travel are placed on a travel team if they register by June 15.
