St. Croix Preparatory Academy Boys Soccer Evaluation Information

Evaluation Process

In St. Croix Preparatory boys’ soccer athletic program, the head coach is responsible for establishing a criteria for selection with input from the entire coaching staff. In the evaluation process, emphasis will be placed on assessing the student athlete by objective and subjective measurements. Team selection, trainings, and decisions regarding game situations are the responsibility of the coaching staff. Our program does not believe in excluding or cutting student athletes from the boys’ soccer program. Every effort will be made to find a spot for each participant. Playing will not be equal for all participants.

 

Our experience in athletics reveals there are many “select teams” sponsored by many different organizations. Each coach looks for something different in his or her players. Participation on a “select team” does not guarantee any player a spot on another “select team” or any high school team. While we believe players can gain valuable experience outside of the school athletic program, neither parents nor students should count on this type of participation to “guarantee” a spot on a high school varsity team. Also, as we get new student athletes every year, so previous involvement with the varsity program does not guarantee placement with the varsity program the following year.

 

In order to make a varsity team, a player must be “qualified” and also play a position the team needs. Underclass student-athletes possessing these qualities have the same opportunity to make a team as the senior does. At selection time, it will be the coaches’ decision on selecting the players for each team.

 

Equipment

All players are required to wear shin guards to practice. It is a high school league requirement that shin guards must have NOCSAE seal and height range permanently marked on front of shin guard. Players must have soccer cleats, soccer socks, shorts, appropriate shirt, and soccer ball for all tryouts, trainings and games.
