Team Selection ProcessUpdated Thursday January 26, 2017 by OYO.
OYO strives to balance its teams and create parity in each league by selecting players based on evaluation scores.
During the 2016 Spring and Fall seasons, we asked all coaches to evaluate their players. This would ensure every returning player would have an evaluation the following spring. The parents of all new players to OYO are being asked to complete a self-evaluation of each player. This would help us have more skill-appropriate evaluations for a greater number of players entering the team selection process.
This information is balanced with input from all coaches in the league in ranking players. As a check-and-balance measure, each league will hold a coaches meeting to review evaluation scores and make adjustments before conducting an actual draft of eligible, registered softball players
Here’s how the process works for softball:
We work hard to ensure team parity throughout this process. However, every season we discover some girls respond better to coaching and practice or mature quicker than others giving certain teams the edge. No matter how the teams turn out, OYO’s softball leaders hope everyone is supportive of their child’s team, has fun and focuses on the bigger picture of helping our girls develop their skills and passion for the game.
