WHAT ARE EVALUATIONS?  WHY WOULD MY CHILD WANT TO ATTEND EVALUATIONS?


If your child decides to attend evaluations, they would be evaluated for a position on one of SHMHA’s Representative/Competitive hockey teams.  Only those that are evaluated for a Representative/Competitive team will pay the evaluation fee and be allowed to attend the evaluations.

As an Association we have certain expectations for our Rep/Competitive Players.  We expect each of them to be highly motivated team players, willing to take direction from their coaching staff and to dedicate as much time, effort and self control, both on and off the ice, as is required to win each hockey game.  


Each coach has different coaching techniques and in a game situation they may chose to use power play lines and shorten the bench.  A coach may choose to do this in tight games, play downs, play offs or in a tournament.  If your child would not want to be a member of one of these teams, there is no obligation to try out. Please refer to our policy posted on the website Policy and Procedures tab, Policy #4 “Playing Time” for more information.


If team numbers allow for an AE team in your child’s division, this team is considered a Representative team and the player must attend evaluations if they wish to play on the AE team.


If playing Representative/Competitive Hockey is not for your child, he/she can play on one of our “local league” or “House League” teams, where there is less focus on winning and more on skill development, effort and learning to be part of a team.  Each level in boy’s hockey will have a local league team that plays in the Lambton Middlesex Hockey League and for girls when registration numbers allow for multiple teams in a division they will play in the Western Ontario Girls Hockey League.


NOTE: If chosen to be on a team, the player is committed to that team – there will be no backing out.  Representative hockey is a lot of fun for the right child and the right parent.
