Player Ratings Policy

The purpose of rating players is to evaluate their overall soccer ability in order to assemble balanced teams (one of the six AYSO philosophies). Although a player’s physical attributes and coordination will change between soccer seasons, an honest assessment of each player’s current ability is critical to maintain the integrity of the team formation process.
