ASSESSMENTS:

Assessments are used to place players in an appropriate division for their age and skill level and are MANDATORY.

The assessment process has three primary goals:

(1) to place players in the appropriate division based on skill, emotional level and safety considerations

(2) to faciliate the drafting of teams in Minors, Majors B and Majors A

(3) to assist in the formation of evenly skilled teams in Mini Minor A.

Please note that registering in one division does not guarantee placement in that division.  Players seeking to register in a division that requires assessments that do not attend assessments may not be played in the division that they are registered for.  We cannot guarantee that non-attendees will be placed in the division they are registered for. Thank you for your understanding.

The Parent's Pledge

  • I will remember that my child plays sport for his or her enjoyment, not for mine.
  • I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

  • I will never question the official’s judgement or honesty in public.
