Pertinent Information Regarding Evaluations

The BVHS website will be updated each night by 12:00am. It is your responsibility to check the website to confirm your child's ice times for their next session. We will be posting the Evaluation Groupings on the website.

The body checking and non-body Checking players will all take part in the evaluation process together. Depending on the number of body checking and non-body checking teams we have will pre determine the number of groups in the evaluation process that will be designated as non-body checking ice times.

Players who are registered in the non-body checking groups will not be able to move up from the highest non-body checking group.

Ex.  If BVHS is to have 5 teams in the U15 age group, 2 of these teams will be body checking and 3 of these teams will be non-body checking teams. During evaluations, for Sessions # 4 and # 5 if we have 5 groups in the U15 evaluations process, then group 1, and 2 would play body checking while groups 3, 4, and 5 would play non-body checking.

Please note this would vary for Sessions # 2 and # 3 Cascades and the info above is used for example purposes only. For players who signed up to play U15 non-body checking, they would not be permitted to move any higher than group 3, as this would be the highest non-body checking team using the example outlined above.

Checking Clinic - The U15 checking clinic provides U15 players with an introductory clinic into checking. The players will learn the basis for giving and receiving checks.  Click Here to see the practice plans for the checking clinics.  Please note due to the current COVID situation checking clinics are TBD at this time.  Based on the current phase in September the clinic may or may not be run for the 2020 Evaluations.

Skills Session # 1, # 2, # 3- Players will participate in timed drills to evaluate skills such as skating and puck handling.

Session # 4- Cascade Skates-These skates provide players with the opportunity to move up or down based on their on-ice performance. Players are permitted to be on the ice for up to two hours and parents should plan accordingly.

Sessions 5- This session will consist of two teams playing one another during a one-hour game. Players will be evaluated during the session where they are the lower-ranked grouping.  Ex.  In the group 1 vs group 2 session- group 2 will be ranked. Players will be moved up or down based on their overall rankings from all 5 sessions. Session # 5 is an evaluated ice time.


Parent's will receive an email prior to September 10, 2021 with your respective player's grouping for both Pathways and Skills Session #1.
