Q:The evaluators must have made a mistake in scoring my child, how do I go about getting this error corrected.
A:The scores given to each player by the evaluators are not open for discussion or revision. The evaluators are watching and scoring all the players against each other in a fair and consistent manner, and once those scores are entered onto the score sheets, and the sheets are signed by the evaluator and turned into the Divisional Coordinator they will not be changed.
Q: Everyone who watched my child play including his last coach thinks that he/she deserves to be placed on a higher team will you consider the opinions of others during the review process.
A: Unfortunately the opinions of past coaches or other parents who witnessed your child play cannot be factored into final team placement. To maintain integrity and fairness to all who have been evaluated the only measurement tool we can use is the scores that have been given by the evaluators.
Q:I truly believe that my child has been placed on the wrong team. Can he/she be moved to a higher level team through an evaluation review?
A: Once teams have been set, player movement is not an option unless there has been a technology related issue with the spreadsheets involved or an error is found in the scoring input into the spreadsheets. In very rare occasions an error is made in the scoring input if this does occur the scores will be properly input and re-calculated. Once the re-calculation has occurred the review committee will review the numbers to determine if a change in team placement is required.
Q: There must be something wrong with the evaluation process to have my child placed on the team he/she ended up on. Why did my child not end up on a higher team?
A: All the players are evaluated against other players in their peer group and are scored accordingly. By the time we approach the last skate the players who fall on either side of a team line are being watched closely. There may be 5 to 10 players whose scores are close enough to each other to warrant this procedure. In many cases, there is a minute difference in the scores between these players (sometimes decimal point differences). At the end of the process, a line is drawn at the number of players that are required to be on each team and the teams are announced.
Q: I am very upset about where my child was placed can I call someone to discuss the matter in detail.
A: All complaints and concerns will not be addressed until after October 1st. Please do not send complaints or concerns until after this date and the VP of Operations will address them. CMH has a zero-tolerance for abuse or harassment to any of our volunteer board members.
