The AYHL evaluation process is designed to reduce stress on both players and families. Evaluations are conducted by our evaluations team, eliminating any volunteer requirements. Our sort skates are designed to avoid â€œspotlightâ€ drills and discourage puck hogging to showcase skills.
During the registration process, parents and previous coaches may be asked to provide input on their child's skill level compared to their peer group.
Based on the AHYL's 8 point scoring matrix, the evaluation committee will evaluate and rank players during practice and game skates. There will be NO single "spotlight" drill evaluations.
Players will divvied up equally in order to create league parity. A mini tournament will then be held to "test league parity". Player movements will once again occur if necessary, with coaching and evaluator input.
