AA EVALUATION INFORMATION

1) AA Evaluations will be a hybrid of CMHA’s regular process and Coaches pick.

 

2) The regular process will be followed with Third Party Evaluators scoring the 5x5 skates and Intersquad.

 

3) COACHES REVIEWS - will be held after every skate to compare what the evaluators are seeing to what the coaches are seeing. These reviews will be held with at least one CMHA VP and the Evaluation Director.

 

4) PARENT AUDITORS REVIEW - designated parents will be evaluating all skates as well. Their scores DO NOT count towards the evaluations. They are there as an audit to what is going on. Sometimes technology error, Third Party error, Data Entry error, etc. This check and balance have helped to identify unforeseen errors.

 

5) CUT DOWN TIMES - will be based on the data. History has shown us that players end up in clusters with “like skilled players.” Cutting down to smaller groups for Intersquad and then for the Pre-Season tournament will be based on clear breaks in the scoring data.

 

6) COACHES PICK - Coaches will have the opportunity to pull some kids through to the next stage that fall outside of the scoring clusters identified. This will be discretionary, and reasons must be given to CMHA Board representatives for review. Players that are pulled through in this manner must have scores that are within range of the pack moving through to the next stage.

 

7) PRESEASON TOURNAMENT - Teams will carry a reasonable number of players that MUST have a valid opportunity to make the team, to the Preseason Tournament.  This will be decided based on the evaluation scoring data. This is where the coaches have an opportunity to be on the bench and in the room with the players to assess things like - attitude, compete, coachability, etc.  It is MANDATORY THAT PLAYERS FIGHTING FOR THE FINAL ROSTER POSITIONS (BUBBLE PLAYERS) PLAY ALL PRESEASON GAMES.  The preseason tournament is not about winning, it is about giving 'Bubble Players' players every opportunity possible to show themselves in their effort to make the team.  This is not negotiable.

 

8) FINAL SELECTION PROCESS - final team selections will be based on scoring data for the top 4 Defenseman and the top 6 Forwards.  The coaches will be given the opportunity to have input on the final 2 Defensemen and final 3-4 Forward selections (in U13 and below teams generally carry 9 Forwards, in U15 and above teams generally carry 10 or 11 forwards). Coaches picks that bring players whose scores fell outside of the top 6 Defenseman and the top 9-11 Forwards (depending on the roster size for the age group) will be reviewed by the CMHA Evaluation Committee and Executive.  The scores of the player/s who Coaches wish to pull from outside the top 6D and the top 9-11 F must be within a reasonable range of those players.  There must also be an explanation given for wanting to bring in a player/s from outside the scoring ranges.  If these are deemed reasonable the Coaches picks will be placed on the Final Roster. 

 

9) U16AA participants with HAVOC - U16AA players registered for both U16AA Havoc and U18AA Timberwolves tryouts. These tryouts are happening at the same time. HAVOC - Sept 16th - 23rd & U18AA- September 16 - 27th. It is important that you let us know if you are released from U16AA tryouts as you will be given the opportunity to still be evaluated for the U18AA team.

 

     There are programs in the elite stream that do guarantee/offer spots on hockey teams, AAA and Academy programs are two examples of this. Bow Valley Timberwolves roster spots are determined by the athletes during the evaluation process. Statements made to the contrary of this sentiment are false, if you have concerns, please forward them to the CMHA board for clarification.
