One of the six AYSO philosophies is Balanced Teams. A key factor in starting the season with teams that are balanced is the open practice. At the open practices the players will be evaluated. Based on the evaluation, the players will be distributed across the teams to balance out the abilities and ages of players assigned to each team.
Open practice schedule information can be found on our calendar. Open practices are only held for the U08 and above divisions. The U06 division does not conduct open practices.
