AC MIAMI 2009 TRAVEL PLAYERS' DIVISION BREAK-UP.
To create more playtime, support competitiveness and to reward professional attitude we divide the pool of travel players on the games into an ‘A’ and ‘B’ squad.
The pool of ‘A’ and ‘B’ team players practice together with the Head and Assistant Coach, but based on their weekly practice attitude, work ethic and game performance, they are rotated in between the two rosters throughout the entire season.
With that being established, we will apply the professional European teams’ system, in which the underperforming athlete gets the same amount of playtime, but in the reserve group, and the players with the best work ethic are invited to the top team's roster. Using this method we can secure the playing time of each player, and in the same time make sure, competitive nature surrounds us throughout the whole season. Furthermore, the best performing players in Athletic Club Miami are rewarded by getting invited to play in the older divisions in multiple occasions. We will keep this tradition, since the players have been greatly benefiting by the extra playtime and versatile experience.
