Please check the Novice Minor webpage often over the upcoming weeks as we will be posting important information on the evaluation skates as we approach the upcoming season. Again if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by email at Hockey3email@example.com. We look forward to meeting you and we'll see you around the rink.
You can get a head start on the administrative items you will need to complete by ensuring that:
1) You have completed Respect in Sports (Parents) or (Team Official)
2) You have completed Sportsmanship Starts in the Stands
3) If you plan on being on the ice or managing, you have completed a Criminal Record Check
4) If you plan on being on the ice or managing, you have taken the CATT course
Please note that all players must have their equipment checked PRIOR to their first ice time.
Some of the common failures which resulted in players not being able to go on the ice for their evaluations were:
1. Helmets which did not fit properly, especially cages. If the chin guard does not catch the players chin and can come off his/her head, the player will not pass. This is common when the cage is too large.
2. Missing pieces of equipment such as neck guards.
3. Rips and tears in socks, gloves and pants.
4. Butt end of stick which can fit through the cage.
5. Equipment that is too small and does not provide a continuous line of coverage.
6. No CSA certification on helmet.
Our priority is player safety which sometimes results in the uncomfortable news that your child will not be allowed to particiapte in the evaluation or tryouts.
Please refer to the Hockey Equipment Checklist on our website for further information.
