    Team Formation Policy

    Below is the current team formation policies developed by the league commissioners. 

     

     

    NCS Program Regulations state, "each registered player will be assigned to a team by the leagues commissioner, using the following criteria:


    AGE BALANCE
    SCHOOL BALANCE
    TALENT PARITY (e.g., pitching, catching)
    TEAM CONTINUITY

    This team formation protocol is intended to clarify these criteria and process followed by the league commissioners.

    In each league, the players assigned to a team as follows:

    1.  Sons/Daughters of the Head Coach 
    2.  No more than two (2) Assistant Coaches sons/ daughters
    3.  Returning players in the same league from the previous season, unless they request to be reassigned to a new team. Players "moving up" between leagues  should not expect to be assigned to a team with the previous seasons teammates.
    4.  Siblings in the same league will automatically be placed on the same team unless otherwise requested.

    After the first phase above, players will be placed on teams in an effort to achieve competitive balance among the teams in each league according to the following guidelines:

    1.  PLAYER EVALUATION
    Using the pre-season player evaluations obtained by the commissioner on "Player Evaluation Day", the players are assigned to teams in an effort to balance perceived skill levels such as pitching, fielding, hitting etc.
    2. AGE BALANCE
    An approximately equal number of older and younger players should be assigned to each team.
    3. SCHOOL BALANCE
    No more than a few players from a particular school will be assigned to a team.
    4. SPECIAL REQUESTS
    Absent extraordinary circumstances (e.g. Medical necessity), any special player assignment requests will br granted only at the discretion of the league commissioner, and in the manner so as to maintain competitive balance.

    Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to a wonderful season.
