Evaluation Objectives

Evaluation Objectives

Whitemud West intends to provide a fair, consistent, and comprehensive evaluation of a player's total hockey skills during the seeding timed skates and scrimmage sessions.

To ensure that all players have a reasonable opportunity of being placed on a team appropriate to their age, skill level, and commitment to the game, as determined during the on-ice evaluations of the current year.

To provide uniformity and consistency in the evaluation process such that player and parent expectations are consistent from year to year as players move through the various levels of the Associations programs.

Evaluation Process

Evaluation Policies will be posted on the WWHA website at the end of August followed by initial skate times. The next skate times and dates and will be posted on WWHA website in a timely manner once the information from the initial skate is compiled. Evaluations will consist of technical drills and scrimmages.
