The coaching staff will make all group level assignments. Training ability, performance, maturity, commitment of both the athlete and the parents, and social group will all be taken into account when making this determination. Be assured that the coaching staff considers every athlete very carefully. 


Even if the athlete makes all the standards for consideration, the athlete may not be moved into the next practice group. Conversely, the coaches may invite an athlete that has not made all the standards to be placed into a higher group. This could be for a variety of reasons including but not limited to physical, mental, or psychological maturity, commitment of the athletes and parents, social group etc. Ultimately it is the sole discretion of the coaching staff where to place an athlete. If you have a question as to why your athlete was placed in a certain group please ask the coach and we will certainly discuss it with you.
