IM Team Formation Policy

Updated Sunday December 27, 2015 by Jeannie Blokker.

Intramural Team Formation Policy

Please take a moment to review our new team formations policy. The objective is to retain the friendship and community element of the program while also trying to minimize highly uneven teams. We have taken into consideration a great deal of feedback on this important issue after the fall season.  The intent is to implement some minor adjustments to address the uneven teams issue in a positive manner.  We thank you for your continued support in our program and helping us make this a great place to play!

CBAA IM/REC SOCCER TEAM FORMATIONS POLICY

Teams will be formed based on various factors that include but not limited to:

  • Player Evaluation (U10 – U18)
  • Number of seasons played/experience
  • Player Draft for Age groups U12-U18
  • School attending
  • Coach Request  
  • Friend Request  

Requests/allowances

Parents may stipulate one 'undesirable' practice night.  Every effort will be made to not schedule your child for practice on that particular night.

  • Please note this does not apply to u5 & u6 who do not have regular midweek practices.
  • The practice night in some age groups may be fixed for multi team (squad) training and player development purposes.

On a request basis, Head coaches can be assigned up to two of their child's friends on his / her team as a 'thank-you'' for volunteering to coach. (This includes, the Asst. coach). 
Parents may request a friend to be on the same team, however, the request must be mutual. If you are requesting a friend on your child’s team, the other parent must already be aware and will need to make the same request.

If a parent requests a specific Head coach for their child, every effort will be made to honor that request. However there is no guarantee that the child will be assigned to that coach.

This policy simply gives our program some flexibility in trying to meet the challenge of forming teams that are somewhat equally balanced for the benefit of all of our players.
