We begin the house pre-season with a series of conditioning and skills skates to prepare for the House Evaluations skates leading up to the formation teams at the end of August. The conditioning skates are provided by the association for your child’s benefit and are included in the cost of your yearly registration fees. They are for players to shake off rust, realize that they have outgrown equipment, or just be more comfortable going into the evaluation skates. The drills in these skates are similar to those in the evaluation skates.
Registered players may come to as many of these skates as they are able to attend!
Our player evaluation skates are where we assess player skill level to create a fair and impartial draft of teams resulting in an even playing field across our program. Mini Mite players are given one overall rating primarily considering the following attributes or skills:
Registered Players are encouraged to attend as many of these skates as possible. Those players who miss evaluations skates will not be included in the draft. These players will be assigned to teams at the end of the draft based on their registration date, continuing in line with the team order used in the draft. If there is a rating from a prior season, this will also be reviewed to determine the best fit.
