Teams are drafted based on an evaluation process. Evaluators assess the skill level of every player. Skills evaluated druing a short scrimmage.
**IMPORTANT: These evaluations are NOT tryouts. This information is only used to assess a player's current skill lever and is a tool for the RCBA to assist with creating teams.
ALL PLAYERS MAKE A TEAM REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY ARE EVALUATE
When drafting teams, we take into account the nights of availability for each player, their evaluation results, and other activities they participate in. The RCBA does take player requests in this division - if your player has a friend they wish to play with, please email the requests to firstname.lastname@example.org or add it directly onto your registration. It may not be possible to fulfill all requests.
The High School program will be divided into 2 divisions - Grade 9 & Grade 10-12
*The RCBA reserves the right to combine all the High School athletes into 1 division, depending on registration numbers.
*The RCBA does not accept zone requests - THIS IS A CITY WIDE PROGRAM, PLAYERS COULD BE ASSIGNED A PRACTICE FACILITY OUTSIDE THEIR ZONE*
Game format is 5v5. Zone defense is not allowed during season. Person to Person pressing is allowed. Game sessions are 75 minutes.
Scores are kept & displayed. If the point differential is more than 25pts, coaches have the option to discontinue showing the score. On the RCBA website, scores will ONLY be recorded up to a 25 point differential. This is to discourage teams from running up the score.
