As per Hockey Canada guidelines all players are to receive 4 skill sessions and then 3 further evaluations before any reassignments are to be made.
Depending on the number of skaters in each age group, there may be a
Rep team, a Second Entry team and a Local League team(s). A Rep team and Second entry team are part of the Southern Counties League. The local League teams are part of the Grand River Local League.
Please email me your coach privately if your player has no intention of trying for the Rep team and Second entry team and they will mark it in their notes but remain to have the players on the ice so everyone receives the same amount of practice time.
