All participants of ESC shall play in a league according to their grade.
A year is from Sept 1st through Aug 31st – encompassing the fall and spring outdoor season and the winter indoor season. No participant shall be allowed to play at a level below their age (play down) except in the case of extreme physical limitations. These exceptions need to be documented and approved prior to the season.
A participant requesting to play at an age level above his age (play up) can only do so by one of the following:
- attending a minimum of 4 weeks of skill practice sessions provided by ESC or
- attending 4 days of summer camp provided by ESC or
- a previous ESC Travel Player and
- the recommendation of the Director of Coaching (ESC staff position).
A Player Evaluation form must be requested by contacting the Executive Director (firstname.lastname@example.org ) and handed to the evaluator at the session. This must be completed and signed prior to team assignments each year. All exceptions must be approved/renewed on a yearly basis.
