Complete TeamSnap before each evaluation session!

JR. INFERNO EVALUATIONS

Volunteers needed for our community evaluation process!

Thanks in advance for your assistance during this very busy time of year.
All evaluation volunteer hours are eligible for credit towards your Volunteer Commitment.

Please Note: All players and volunteers will be asked to complete a COVID-19 Screening Assessment prior to all evaluation ice times and volunteer shifts.

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

Upon arrival to your daughter’s first Community elevations session, GHC will issue a unique identification number to display on the player’s helmet. These numbers must remain visible and unaltered on your daughter’s helmet for the entirety of the evaluation sessions.

Spectator Guidelines

Spectators will not be permitted in the arena during the evaluation and sorting phase. One (1) parent of U7 to U11 players may enter the facility to assist with skate tying, but must exit the facility immediately after. If your child has a serious medical condition that requires monitoring, please inform your Age Group Coordinator as soon as possible. Volunteers will have access to players’ emergency contact information at each ice session, and we will have Female Dressing Room Supervisors who will guide your daughters on and off the ice.

Read more about Spectator Guidelines here.

COVID-19 Release and Waiver

Parents/Guardians must sign GHC’s COVID-19 Release and Waiver prior to the first ice session or your player(s) will not be permitted on the ice. Once you have agreed to and submitted this form, you do not need to do anything further.

REVIEW AND SUBMIT WAIVER HERE: https://www.girlshockeycalgary.com/covid-19-release-and-waiver/

Pre-Activity Screening

GHC members must complete and be cleared in TeamSnap Health Check before attending each ice session. Players will be added by age division (i.e. U18 Evaluations). The system is very easy to use and will allow us to track attendance and accurately capture a players COVID-19 status prior to participating in a hockey activity. This information is private — only the fact that a player has "cleared" the Health Check is visible to an administrator of the group. Health Check will be available 8 hours prior to the beginning of each ice session your player is attending.

Please note, the time noted on Team Snap will not be the time of your session but is just a time range to allow for all of the sessions for your age group in a day. You must attend the session that has been posted on this page under your players Hockey ID for each individual session.

Player Groupings

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.

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 AAA/AA 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.

Session Details

Community evaluations will be will be entirely physically distanced while the players are on the ice and in the facility, to ensure the safety of the players and to help reduce the number of player-to-player contact.

As in past seasons, the first evaluation session for all players from U9 to U18 will follow the Hockey Canada National Skills Standards & Testing Program, facilitated by a third-party vendor. A summary by age group is available here, but the stations and descriptions may change before evaluations start.

GHC will work alongside a third-party training provider to deliver physically-distanced evaluation drills for subsequent evaluation sessions for each age division. These drills have been approved by Hockey Calgary.

Cohorts & Mini Team Formation

Following the evaluation/sorting component, players will be grouped into Cohorts. Cohorts will consist of approximately 36-48 players, depending on the age category and registration breakdown. Once in formal Hockey Calgary Cohorts, players are permitted to engage in drill where they will come into close contact with other players. Further clarification and guidelines will be communicated based on number of players registered per division.

Within each Cohort, GHC will create 3 or 4 evenly balanced Mini Teams of 9-12 players (with goalies) to facilitate game play. Hockey Calgary allows Associations the ability to rebalance Mini Teams if they are not competitive. However, Cohorts will be locked for the either the entirety of the Alberta Phase 2 relaunch, or until the new year where Hockey Calgary will have the opportunity after the 2-week winter holidays to create new cohorts.

Our goal will be to create Cohorts and Mini Teams that allow players to maintain balanced and competitive play, to develop and participate equitably, and to have fun during the initial return and eventually the season.

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.
