My child wants to play with their friend down the block. Can you accommodate this special request?
EMSA West may be able to accommodate your request, depending on a number of things, i.e. Are the children in the same Age Category? Are the children of relatively equal skill and ability? Did one of the boys register late? Is there room on the team for this child? Each special request is evaluated individually by the Community Coordinator and a decision is made on a case by case basis.
My child would like to move down an Age Category in order to play with his friend. Can he do this?
You may request a downward age movement due to a child’s mental or physical disabilities. These requests must be supported by letters from physicians. All age movement requests must be in writing. The letters/emails must be received by EmsaWEST (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) and include the reason and supporting physicians letter for them. You will be notified of the decision in writing. The committee’s decision is final.
My child would like to move up an Age Category in order to play with their friend. Can they do this?
EMSA West will review any and all requests for age movement. However, we are reluctant to move any player out of their age category unless the request is necessary and justified. We believe that a player moving up has a definite disadvantage against older, stronger, and faster children and this may affect the child’s self-esteem and confidence. We are also concerned about the unfair position it puts the team in, by having an under age player on the team. There are also the socialization aspects that you should consider. By that we mean that there is more to being on a child’s soccer team than simply playing soccer. One must consider that there is a certain ‘value’ in your child being able to comfortably associate with others on his/her own team that are of the same mental/emotional/physical level. We would prefer that wherever possible you keep your child in the age group that he/she is supposed to be in. All age movement requests must be made in writing and submitted to EmsaWEST (email: email@example.com)
