Evaluation Policy Overview

Every member that joins LSVA is required to attend a new member/evaluation clinic. At a new member/evaluation clinic, members will be evaluated by the Skills and Development Committee and assigned a rating. A member's rating determines which division the member will play in. The Evaluation Guidelines are the same for new and current members. New members that have a NAGVA rating of of A or AA will be exempt from being evaluated if they have played in a NAGVA tournament in the last two years; they will receive a rating of A for LSVA. If they do not want this automatic rating, they may elect to be evaluated. 

At any time, current members may request to be re-evaluated and receive a new rating by registering and attending a new member/evaluation clinic. Any re-evaluations take effect for the next season or open play. While a member's rating may change immediately during an open play season, no member's rating may change during a spring or fall league season. E.g. If a member's rating changes during fall league from B to A, that member will not be allowed to play in the A division until the following open play season. They will remain in the B league for the remainder of that fall league until it ends.

At the end of every league season, the Skills and Development Committee will poll that season's captains and request information on players who the captains feel are not playing at level for their division. The Committee will examine every member produced by the captains on an individual basis and will determine if that member will be required to attend a new member/evaluation clinic. The Committee will make their decision based on several factors that include, but are not limited to: the last time that member was evaluated; the member's draft performance; and possibly observation of the member by the Committee during open play. Member's that are selected for re-evaluation will not be allowed to register for any events until they completed the re-evaluation. 

Current members that are uprated in NAGVA to BB or higher, will automatically be given an A rating starting with the next league season or open play. If they do not want this automatic rating, they may elect to be re-evaluated.
