REC LEAGUE EVALUATIONS/FIRST PRACTICE DATES

All players, except for the K-3rd Grade, Girls 9th through 12th Grade League , Boys 11th/12th Grade League and players selected to a Travel Team must be evaluated. Following evaluations, coaches will contact their players with specific dates for practices, clinics and games. 
 
Late October and early November Practice expectations for all ELYB players:  It is ELYB's position that the outgoing FALL East Lyme Parks & Rec sports (Soccer, Football, Cheer, etc ) take precedence over ELYB practices until that season is complete.
 
Boys Kindergarten TBD, coaches will contact players*
Boys 1st Grade TBD, coaches will contact players*
Girls K/1st Grade TBD, coaches will contact players*
Boys 2nd Grade first practice TBD, coaches will contact players*
Boys 3rd Grade first practice TBD, coaches will contact players*
Girls 2nd/3rd Grade first practice TBD, coaches will contact players*
   
*Typically, Instructional starts first or second week November and lasts until mid-February. This year, due to unavailability of the Flanders and NCS gyms, all sessions will be held at the Salem school.  We anticipate instructional sessions this year will be once a week.  We are hoping to have them on Saturdays or Sundays but this definitely is NOT set in stone and is based on gym and coaching availability.  We will update this page once a final decision has been made.   
   
Girls 4th/5th Grade evaluation Typically, Rec evaluations are the second week of October with practices starting the following week.  The season goes until mid-February.
Girls 6th/7th/8th Grade evaluation Typically, Rec evaluations are the second week of October with practices starting the following week.  The season goes until mid-February.
Boys 4th/5th Grade evaluation This year, ELYB is piloting a new evaluation process for the 4/5th grade boys division.  For the first few weeks of the season (Late Oct - Early Nov) the players will participate in practice sessions as a group.  At the end of this few week evaluation period, players will be divided into teams and from that point forward will practice as such.  The reasoning behind this new process is to allow the kids to focus on skill development while transitioning out of the fall sport's season were, historically, team practice attendance is low.  Additionally, the coaches will be able to evaluate the players over a longer period allowing proper team placement. This will help us reach our goal of competitive team balance.
Boys 6th/7th Grade evaluation Typically, Rec evaluations are the second week of October with practices starting the following week.  The season goes until mid-February.
Boys 8th/9th/10th Grade evaluation Typically, Rec evaluations are the second week of October with practices starting the following week.  The season goes until mid-February.
