What is the mission of the Warrenton Youth Soccer Club? The founders of WYSC created the league as a place where children of all ages and abilities could learn about sports while having fun. The emphasis is on learning, teamwork and sportsmanship.

Purpose of Player Evaluations
Each season, Warrenton Youth Sports Club holds player evaluations for our Recreational Basketball program. The purpose of holding player evaluations is threefold:
To allow WYSC to assign a "rating" to each child following a series of rotating stations (shooting, dribbling, foul shots, etc.) in an effort to keep teams as evenly matched as possible
To allow WYSC to assign a suggested position for each player
To allow WYSC coaches the opportunity to then review the children's ratings, height, and experience during the player placement. Again, this gives WYSC the opportunity to spread out the ability levels amongst all the teams;
To allow children the fun experience of rotating stations and to provide an introduction to the basketball season.
To obtain an accurate height measurement on player
Attendance is Mandatory for Players Over the Age of Seven
If your child does not attend the evaluations, they will not be part of the draft and will therefore be placed on the team of WYSC's choosing. No team preference requests are accepted. WYSC's placement will be based on which team needs players after the drafted players are chosen.
Again, placement will be WYSC's discretion if a player doesn't attend the evaluation.
Evaluation Rules and Process
In order to refine the player evaluation process, the following adjustments have been voted on and agreed upon by the basketball committee and commissioners:
No late arrivals. Once the evaluation starts, the gym doors will be closed since the rotation and line-up will have already begun.
Time slots for evaluations will be 30 minutes in length.
Time slots will be broken up by age, rather than division. For example, in the past we've combined the 9-10 girls which results in a lot of players arriving to be evaluated at the same time. Moving forward, the 9 year olds and the 10 years olds will be evaluated separately, for example
Players will receive a sticker to wear with a number on it when they check in. This will make it easier for the evaluators to identify players
Evaluators who are coaches will evaluate outside of the age division in which they are coaching.
Players who want to play up a division need to come to the evaluation time slot for their actual age, but let the evaluators know their intention to play up. Evaluators can they make a recommendation on playing up.
