Hockey players may vary considerably in their individual skills. In general, players have a more enjoyable experience when playing with other players of similar abilities. In order to provide this, an evaluation process is necessary.
In the Hawks Athletics Club, all Novice, Atom and Peewee players will participate in evaluations. Evaluations are based on the player's age category and direct observation of hockey skills with a strong emphasis on skating. The purpose of evaluations is to create teams consisting of players with similar abilities. Every effort is made to ensure a fair and equitable process. The Evaluation Committee, in consultation with the HAC executive, develops and conducts the evaluation process.
Please remember that the selection process may be difficult for both players and evaluators and we ask that you do not make it more difficult with your actions or comments.
Any questions about the evaluation process should be directed to the VP Hockey Operations.
