EVALUATION DAY INFORMATION:
Murfreesboro Soccer Club is continuing our efforts to create balanced teams within the recreational program. The club will be holding a player assessment day for all players age U10 – U14. Age group commissioners will use this information to assist them when forming teams along with the players experience level, school or select team play, age of player (for combined age groups), gender (for coed teams) and self-evaluation reported during player registration. It is our ongoing goal to create teams with a balance of new and experienced players and provide each player with the means to succeed and further enjoy their playing experience with Murfreesboro Soccer Club.
