HOW OUR FALL EVALUATION PROCESS WORKS
Once your skater or goalie is registered for our evaluations, your ice times will be emailed to you, by the Head Coaches from your age division, just prior to the start of sessions. Each registrant is guaranteed three ice times (the first selection round). Our full ice schedule is posted above (subject to change).
OUR EVALUATION FORMAT consists of skill drills (such as skating, shooting and stabbing) and game play. Players will be advised of what coaches are looking for prior to any drill exercise.
Following the initial round of three ice times, the skaters and goalies moving forward to the next Evaluation round will be posted on our website. This second and final round will consist of up to three more ice times.
FINAL TEAM SELECTION will occur by draft, with results to be posted on our website.
Once teams are selected, AA Registration fees are due immediately and team meetings are scheduled as soon as possible. Our AA Registrar will inform community associations of player selection—please follow up for their refund policies. If a registrant is not drafted, they are released back to their community for evaluations and season play.
2018-19 Division Coordinators
Our Division Coordinators facilitate the evaluation process, and ensure that proper policy and documentation are followed throughout. Please direct any questions or concerns to them (rather than coaches or on-ice helpers).
We look forward to seeing you this fall!
