Team formation policy:
The primary purpose of team formation events is to evaluate and to place individuals onto teams that are developmentally appropriate for each player.
Children develop at different stages and it is important for players who at this time have similar abilities of technical, tactical, physical, and psychological abilities and/or knowledge of the game.
Specific age group coaches in conjunction with gender specific Director of Coaching, work together collaboratively to place each player appropriately on a team within our club.
As a result of this collaborative effort, players may also see their team placement change during the year. Reasons for change may include but are not limited to injury or illness as well as promoting players for their hard work and improvement. The ultimate goal is for players to be successful at every level of the game.
Our coaching staff is committed to developing players the right way and they take that commitment very seriously when placing players on specific teams. Players who are not offered aposition on a select team will be referred and encouraged to register for the Sporting Omaha FC recreational program allowing players to continue their development and enjoyment of the game.
