10U Evaluation Process

By Admin 09/17/2020, 8:15pm EDT

2020-2021 

10U Evaluation Process 

$45 registration ($15 per hour of ice time) 

Evaluation location: Lysander Ice Arena (2725 W Entry Rd, Baldwinsville NY, 13027) 

3 separate teams consisting of 11-20 players based upon assessments made by independent evaluators: Independent travel 

Snow-belt White 

Snow-belt Blue 

Ideally, we will have 3 separate teams consisting of 11 players each. Our goal is to place “like-skilled  players on like-skilled teams.” 

Adjustments will need to be made to the evaluation process if a significant number of more or less players  register for the evaluation. We anticipate 30+ players. 

Snow-belt Blue evaluation 

Players are not required to attend the evaluation process if they choose to play on this team. 

Evaluation dates: 

Saturday, September 26th (9:30 am – 10:30 am) 

Sunday, September 27th (11 am – 12 pm) 

Sunday, October 4th (11 am – 12 pm) 

Snow-belt White evaluation 

Evaluation dates: 

Saturday, September 26th (9:30 am – 10:30 am) 

Sunday, September 27th (11 am – 12 pm) 

Sunday, October 4th (11 am – 12 pm) 

Team selection based on assessments made by independent evaluators 

Minimum 11 player roster  

Maximum 18 player roster and 2 goalies 

We anticipate 15-20 players taking part in the evaluation process for this level. Must attend evaluations for consideration of placement on the team. Attending all days of  evaluations is recommended to give evaluators more time to observe your player and give them  the best opportunity to make this team. 

Failure to attend evaluations due to situations out of your control will be evaluated by the board  on an individual basis. (We recommend prior written notice describing your unique situation so  we can plan accordingly) 

Players with the highest evaluation results from September 26th will have the option to try out for  Independent travel if they so desire. (The number of players advancing to the Independent travel 

tryout will be dependent upon placing “like-skilled players on like-skilled teams.” We anticipate  a minimum of 5 players advancing.) 

You will be notified by September 27th if your player has been selected to advance to the  Independent travel team evaluations 

Players who advance to the Independent travel evaluation will automatically earn a spot on the  Snow-belt white team if they are not selected for the travel team. 

Independent travel evaluation 

Evaluation dates: 

Sunday, September 27th (9:30 am – 10:30 am) 

Saturday, October 3rd (6:30 pm – 7:30 pm) 

Sunday, October 4th (9:30 am – 10:30 am) 

Team selection based on assessments made by independent evaluators 

Minimum 11 player roster  

Maximum 14 player roster 

We anticipate 15-20 players taking part in evaluations 

To be eligible for the Independent travel evaluation, your player must have played on a 10U  travel or Red Snow-belt program in 2019-2020 OR they must take part in the Snow-belt white  tryout and advance to this tryout based on the evaluation. 

If you are not selected to the Independent travel team you will automatically receive a spot on the  White Snow-Belt team 

Failure to attend evaluations due to situations out of your control will be evaluated by the board  on an individual basis. (We recommend prior written notice describing your unique situation so  we can plan accordingly)

Hi everyone...  we are aware of the messaging SUNY Morrisville and MAC/the IcePlex put out moments ago.  Please know that we were only told about it 10 minutes before they shared it publicly.  We are working on potential alternative solutions as we speak but need some time to do that.  We urge you to stay positive and patient while you wait to hear from us.  We will have more information for you in the coming weeks.  #centerstatestrongertogether.

Please direct questions or concerns to Christopher Lott, President 315-368-7288) or Heather Howard (communications@centerstatehockey.com or 315-436-3341 - texting is preferred
