EVALUATIONS

Volunteers needed for our community evaluation process!

Check back in late summer and early Fall for volunteer opportunities during our Community Evaluations! All evaluation volunteer hours are eligible for credit towards your Volunteer Commitment.

COMMUNITY EVALUATION OVERVIEW

GHC community evaluations are not tryouts, but an evaluation of a player’s overall hockey proficiency. The goal is to determine which division each player is best suited to play in, and to aid in the formation of balanced teams. All players are expected to attend evaluations.

Player Identification

Players will be assigned to a specific ice time for each evaluation session. They will be identified using their Hockey Canada ID#. Names will not be listed. For instructions on how to retrieve your Hockey Canada ID Number, please visit our FAQ page.

Evaluation Groupings

As evaluations proceed, the player groupings in each session will change based on varying group sizes and player's performance. Players are responsible for checking this page regularly during evaluations to determine which ice times they are required to attend. No notice will be sent out.  Players will only be allowed to attend their assigned ice times.

If you believe a technical error has been made in the evaluation of your daughter, please contact the VP of Operations before the last evaluation session.

Players who are released from the Elite selection process will be expected to attend the next community evaluation session in their age group.

Evaluators

Our evaluators will be made up of a combination of internal and external evaluators.   Internal evaluators will be primarily made up of coaching candidates. Internal evaluators are never allowed to evaluate an age group they have a daughter registered in.  External evaluators may not have a daughter registered in any of our programs.

Team Formation

Once evaluations are complete, teams are formed. These teams are considered final and players will not moved. Our Evaluation Committee is continuously working to improve our evaluations to ensure fair and consistent results.

Session Details

Below you will find a detailed description of our evaluation sessions for each age group.  The final details of any session may change at any time at the discretion of the Evaluations Committee.   A detailed description of the Player Skill Assessment stations can be found here.

2020/21 Community Evaluation Dates

  • Player groupings will be posted on the Girls Hockey Calgary website by hockey identification number. It will be up to the players/parents to check the website to see when their next ice time will be.
  • Our Evaluations Committee works around-the-clock during evaluation period to collect and coordinate results and post them to the website. Players will be informed of their next ice time as soon as it's possible.
  • All players are required to attend our evaluations process. If you are unable to make an evaluation session, it is your responsibility to contact your Age Group Coordinator.
  • GHC uses Hockey Canada Skill Testing stations during the first day of evaluations. Each age group will run through a number of stations during the Evaluation Skills Day. A summary by age group has been provided, but the stations and descriptions may change before evaluations start.
