Player Evaluation

Pioneer soccer players are evaluated across five different disciplines. The goal of this is to identify, gauge and consider all aspects of a student-athlete, not just technical ability. Each discipline is graded on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 representing a beginner and 10 representing a top-flight performance.

1. Technical: technique and skill
- Confident, controlled dribbling, passing and receiving ability
- Clean, balanced ball striking ability (passing and shooting)
- Command of the ball at all times

2. Tactical: awareness, understanding and speed of play
- Maintains balanced shape and moves intelligently without the ball
- Communicates clear and correct directions
- Comprehends systems of play, positioning and the rules of the game

3. Physical: strength, speed and fitness
- Has good speed, strength and can endure long periods of activity
- Can physically compete without fouling or being imposed on
- Is assertive in maintaining or creating space
- Can complete a mile time trial in 6:00 or less (Varsity level)

4. Psycho-Social: citizenship, attitude and discipline
- Positive yet competitive overall attitude towards team and opponent
- Can receive, comprehend and apply direction
- Is respectful to elders and authority figures (referees, etc.)

5. Academic GPA: classroom evaluation at conclusion of each grading period

Estimated Scoring Guidelines
Total Score Player Level
36-40 Professional Player
31-35 College Player
26-30 Varsity Player
21-25 Junior Varsity Player
16-20 Frosh/Soph Player
