Evaluations are expected to start early September (for U9, U11) to mid-September (for U15, U18). Please watch this page (and visit the links below) for more information.
Note: Your category director will contact you with your assigned skate times. If you have questions about this, please contact your director at the email listed below:
Players will be assigned a skills skate to start, followed by two or three scrimmages. The evaluation score the player receives in the skills skate will determine the group the player skates in for the first scrimmage. Players may be moved from group to group depending on skill level observed during the scrimmages.
Players will receive an email before evaluations start with a player code in order to track their evaluation score. Once the evaluations are completed, evaluation scores are then used to determine team placement.

Tips for players:
Through player participation in a transparent evaluation process, assign players to the right team and tier; and ensure our teams are formed fairly, especially when they are in the same tier.
Each category will need 6-7 on ice volunteers and 3-4 off-ice volunteers for the skills skates. Please contact your director if you can assist.
Each category will need approximately 4 bench volunteers for the scrimmages, along with 1-2 on ice volunteers. Please contact your director if you can assist.
Please send your questions or comments to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in helping on the evaluation committee, please contact that same email address.
