From time to time, questions arise about the composition of teams when there are multiple
teams in an age bracket. Questions are commonly centered on whether the WV CHAOS should field one stronger and one weaker team or two balanced teams in an age bracket. The policy of the club will be to field the strongest team possible in each age division and then additional teams when possible, with the overall goal of doing our best to insure that every player has a place to play. Under this policy, the most developed players will be on the roster of the first team, with the next group on team 2 and so on. The tiered structure of the WV Chaos Soccer Club provides opportunities for each squad to find its own competitive level over the years through the reshuffling that may occur after the spring season.
In an ideal situation, no player should be guaranteed a position on an individual team from year to year. Because of the differing rates of skill development and physical maturation in youth, a player who is initially on the 2nd or 3rd squad in an age bracket should be able to move up to the 1st squad as he/she develops. The tryout process, with an independent evaluator at each age bracket, will be intended to provide this opportunity to players.
