The following objectives are adhered to during the player selection process.
- Select those VYS participants who have distinguished themselves by consistently displaying superior game skills, leadership and sportsmanship toward each other, the opposing teams, referees, and others involved in VYS; and
- Form All Star teams in a transparent manner that minimizes disappointment for the children.
Each child U8 and above who has registered with VYS House Soccer during the regular season will be provided the opportunity to be considered for the VYS-sanctioned All Stars Tournaments in the area for U8 and above divisions. VYS will endeavor to form as many All Stars teams as feasible in light of the availability of slots in tournaments and the number of qualified volunteer coaches. As a general rule of thumb, only about 20 percent of the children in any given age division will be selected to participate in the tournament.
