Overview

This age is part of phase 3 in our Player Development Chart:

U11: Phase 3--Training to Train

 

The U11 age group is in the heart of the “golden age” of learning.  Continued emphasis on individual ball skill along with an expanded tactical understanding is the goal.  U11 is also when formal “tryouts” are introduced.  The level of competition is heightened at this age as players “tryout” to play on a CMYSA Competitive Team.  Players of similar abilities will be evaluated and placed one of two teams at this age group:  Elevated or Non-Elevated.  Both are considered to be Competitive Programs.

“Elevated.”  The traditional “Travel” or “Competitive” team.  This team is the elevated team at this age group.  It will compete in the MYSA League at the C2 Level. 

“Non Elevated”.  For players not making the elevated team, a second option is available.  The non-elevated team is Tournament-Only . 

If a player is invited to play on the elevated team, but chooses to play on the non-elevated team, this will be allowed.  However, a player not making the elevated team does not have the opportunity to play on the elevated team. 

For those players who do not make either team, CMYSA recommends the Rec/In-House league in addition to attending the camps and clinics put on by and brought in by CMYSA to help elevate that player’s level.

Both Competitive level teams will receive professional training once per week by a licensed and qualified skills coach.  It is also expected that the team practices on its own at least once a week in addition to the professional training sessions.
