2018 Fall Travel Evaluations

EvaluationsEach spring, Milton Travel Soccer players entering U9-U14 (3rd-8th grade) age groups in the Fall participate in player evaluations. These evaluations are used to place players on appropriately leveled teams that compete in BAYS at similar levels of competition.

Players are placed in small sided games and evaluated by professional coaches. The idea is that players have fun playing with players at their own age group.  The process is not perfect, but these external evaluations along with coaches' ratings are used to place players on appropriate teams.

This process generally offers appropriate playing opportunities for all players in Milton.

There are two dates for evaluations and are usually conducted during the first and second weekends of June.  This year, the evaluations will be held on the following dates.  Specific times will be announced later in the spring:

  • June 3rd  -  Milton Healthcare (Flatley) Fields 
  • June 10th - Milton Healthcare (Flatley) Fields 

We highly recommend attending both days for a better evaluation, but attending one is much better than not attending any.

It is expected that parents will observe from afar and not interfere in the process.  Professional coaches will be evaluating players on their technical, tactical, and athletic abilities as well as their attitudes.

Player and team placement is very much dependent on the number of players that register on time.  Input is also sought from coaches who see the players every week.  This process is not perfect, but it has proven to work out over the long term. 

UK Elite Skills Sessions

Soccer skills clinics run by UK Elite are happening for 8 Tuesdays at Milton Healthcare, April 10th - May 29th:UK Elite

  • 3rd Grade boys and girls will train from 5:30-6:30pm
  • 4th-5th grade boys and girls will practice 6:30-7:30pm

The program is run with an individual development/academy style so the kids won’t be broken into teams and coaches aren’t required to be present.  This is another opportunity for the players to get touches on the ball.  Attendance is completely voluntary.  Coaches of your specific teams will determine if/when you will have team practice which would be in addition to this.

Spring Schedules & Teams: A helpful How-To

 

How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself "How do I work this?"

Hello and good day to you, Milton Soccer community!  Lately we've been receiving a number of requests for team and schedule information from K-2 through Travel program age groups and wanted to let you all know that this information resides right here on our Milton Soccer website.  Let's take a quick tour, shall we?

For Schedules of all age groups you can simply mouseover the Spring 2018 option on the top navigation bar which will present you with a number of options that cascade downward with further detail.  The Pre-K and Travel options link to general pages, while K-2 and Champions League break out to sub-links off of the main option.  Click on the one you want and you'll see game information.

Don't know which team you're on?  No problem.  It's easy to find!

From the same top navigation bar as Spring 2018, please select the option Register.  Enter your family account information and scroll down to "Participant Information."  Your player's info and team assignments will be presented there.

Thanks and enjoy your spring season!

Milton Soccer at Tucker Activities Fair

Milton Soccer at Tucker SchoolTucker School hosted a very successful evening Activities Fair this week and representatives from Milton Soccer were there assisting with some late registrations and answering a range of questions about Milton Soccer programs.  This was an invaluable opportunity to meet Tucker families and represent Milton Soccer alongside other Milton athletic and community organizations and to have all of these amazing options in one place and was an ideal stop for those new to Milton, just beginning the process or just unsure of opportunities and registration requirements.  Many thanks to Tucker Assistant Principal Cat DesRoche for helping with the organization of this event!
