For the Fall 2012 season, the WAGS Board of Directors (BOD) will be implementing a structure change for the rising U12 age group. In previous seasons, this age group was structured into brackets based on similar skill levels. Skill levels were determined by the team's reported game day results. The WAGS BOD felt that this approach did not afford all the teams equal opportunities to improve their level of play.
Beginning this fall season, the BOD has adopted a tiered bracket approach. Each rising U12 bracket is structured with teams of differing skill levels. The WAGS BOD believes that this approach will afford coaches and trainers the opportunity to transition towards competitive play at U12 while continuing to focus on player development at U9 through U11.
