For fall 2013–the Aces started the season with 458 players on 43 teams, from Kindergarten to 8th grade. There were 224 girls (including 10 who also play travel soccer) and 234 boys (including 9 who also play travel soccer), on 18 girls teams, 19 boys teams, and 6 co-ed teams.
Team Assignment Policy:
The goal of the Aces team assignment policy is to provide for continuity of team rosters, while also providing for equitable and transparent assignment of both new and returning players to teams. Team assignments are also subject to roster maximums and travel player maximums assigned by the ASA.
General team assignment:
In consultation with Aces age-group Coaches, the Aces Club Manager will determine both when an additional team needs to be formed and when an existing team needs to be eliminated. In each of these cases, the Aces age-group Coaches and Club Manager will determine the allotment of players across the new teams in the age group.
Please note that team sizes change from age-group to age-group, and so the make-up of teams may change from year to year for this reason alone.
All team assignments are ultimately made at the discretion of the Aces Club Manager in consultation with Coaches, with the policies above serving as guidelines.
Practice Assignment Policy:
The goal of the Aces practice assignment policy is to provide Coaches with the ability to select the practice slot of their choice in an equitable and transparent manner, while allowing for Coaches of multiple teams to coordinate their schedules by giving them priority of selection.
Each season, the Aces are allotted a certain set of practice “slots” from the ASA, who has been given a set of slots from Arlington DPRCR. (A “slot” is a date, time, and location.) The Head Coaches of each team are given the opportunity to select the practice slot of their choice in the following manner:
Within each of the three categories, selection order is determined by random number generation.
The Aces Club Manager is ultimately responsible for practice slot assignment, and will determine how the process is operationalized each season. (In order to save time, coaches are typically asked at the same time to rank their top choices, and the Aces Club Manager assigns practice slots from these rankings based on the principles listed above.)
