Team Selection Policy

For teams with competitive tryouts, coaches shall select players for their team in accordance with the mission of the PGSA, which is to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of area boys and girls through the sport of soccer.  Player development holds the highest priority, and is followed by team development, both of which supersede any one coach’s wants. Ultimately, players choose for which team they play, given a roster opportunity.

PGSA strives to always have an A-team, based on player performance, and will have a designated A-team in instances of multiple teams for an age group.  Tryouts for an age group with multiple teams shall occur simultaneously, with all coaches evaluating players during the collective tryout.  The A-team has one week, post tryouts, to set their roster before subsequent teams may engage eligible players and set their roster(s).  A player previously on an A team’s or its coach’s roster may miss tryouts and still earn an invite to play, if they miss tryouts due to injury, illness, or other circumstance.

PGSA prioritizes forming teams in order to maximize opportunities for player development.  Rosters sizes may flex upwards to NCYSA dress limits without player guarantee of game play.  An A-team shall have a minimum of four and maximum of six player substitutions on its roster to start a season before a second full roster can form.  Player longevity with PGSA is the final qualifying tiebreaker for team selection, where years of registration is prioritized.  Unique and special circumstances shall be reviewed and decided by the Board of Directors.
Effective August 2022
