OYO strives to balance its teams and create parity in each league through careful team construction using coach evaluation scores from previous seasons, where possible. While we are committed to creating a positive experience for all ballplayers and families, including accommodating requests where possible, our primary objective is to establishing balanced teams and fun, competitive on-the-field experiences. In the end, OYO hopes this team construction process creates greater parity and fairness for all teams in every division.
Following each rec season since 2009, we have required all coaches to evaluate their players. This would ensure every returning player would have an evaluation the following season. While all parents are asked to rate their ballplayers during the online registration process, OYO only references those ratings for new players only. Collectively, this process enables us to use more skill-appropriate evaluations for a greater number of players entering the team selection process.
