Player Evaluations

All Pepperell Soccer players taking part in our travel program (grades 3-8) must be evaluated to ensure proper placement on a team. As with every youth sport, player placement is an inexact science. Pepperell Soccer does its best and strives to be as objective as possible by providing for and utilizing multiple factors in the decision making process.

Fall evaluations will be conducted by Pepperell Soccer coaches. Note, parents/caregivers and other siblings will not be permitted near the fields during evaluations. We ask that you remain in the parking lot during the evaluation session so your player is completely focused on their performance.

What to Bring

Players should come to evaluations with the same equipment they would bring to a practice, as outlined on our equipment page.

Important: Players should NOT wear their Pepperell Soccer uniform or any other clothing that has their name on it. Numbered pinnies will be provided.

Other Details

If your child cannot attend their age/gender group and are planning on playing fall or spring soccer please email

Teams are built based upon the number of players registered and all players will be placed on a team. If your child is only planning to participate in the spring soccer season, they must still attend an evaluation session.

If your child is interested in ‘playing up’ at the next grade level please email with detailed reasoning for an early move request. Age group move ups are reviewed on a case by case basis taking into account roster size restrictions set forth by NVYSL and Mass Youth Soccer.
