Evaluators and On Ice Support

All perspective head and assistant coaches must complete at least 15 hours (4-5 shifts) during evaluations as part of their coaching application. These shifts should be 'one ice' or 'evaluator' shifts.

Head coaches will be selected and appointed by BVHS in accordance with the coach selection guideline. Assistant coaches (3 assistants and 1 goalie coach) are appointed by BVHS Coach Selection Committee and the manager will be by appointment of the head Coach in consultation with BVHS Manager of Hockey Operations and respective Age Group Directors.

The Bow Valley Hockey Society has a very structured evaluation process and bases its evaluation process on the time and dedication of the volunteers who help to make the evaluation process fair, and transparent with its membership.  Each year, BVHS evaluates over 1,000 kids and we do our best to ensure kids are placed fairly in accordance to their skills sets.

Please Note -  You cannot evaluate the same age group that your son or daughter plays in.

If your child is in Timbits you are welcome to be on ice for the Learn to Play Ice Times.
