Attention all current U8, U10, and U12 Harvard Soccer Families,

U12 Tryouts are for players who are entering 5th and 6th grade in the fall. (Current 4th and 5thgraders)
Andrew Thomas on behalf of the Harvard Soccer Club
Why is there a tryout/jamboree? The tryout/jamboree is used to assist in team formation for the fall season. The key to forming teams is to understand players’ skill levels. Two primary forms of evaluation are used to do this: a coaches rating and the tryout/jamboree rating. By evaluating players, we are able to place them appropriately on specific teams in order to create a positive experience for ALL players.
Why do we have to evaluate players … why not mix them across teams like we do in other sports or U6/U7/U8?
The Harvard Soccer Club is part of the NVYSL (Nashoba Valley Youth Soccer League). All Harvard teams, U10 and up, play in this league. NVYSL has different divisions based on skill and this requires the club to have some sort of ranking system in order to effectively build and place teams for fair, even competitive play. Most towns within NVYSL have a comparable process for evaluating players and forming teams. Our goal is to provide the best soccer program possible for ALL children of Harvard. This means meeting the needs of players at all levels of skill—in other words, the competitive as well as the recreational soccer player. We do this while doing our best to enable equal, fair competition where no one player dominates play.
All this is kept in perspective with an overall goal of having fun and continuing to develop player’s soccer skills.
