Peewee Sort-out Process

This note is aimed at providing some general information regarding the upcoming peewee house sort-out process.
  • Peewee house consists of three levels, A, B and C. Peewee A is contact. Peewee B and C are non-contact.
  • There are currently players sufficient for thirteen teams in peewee house. Sort-outs are used to balance the players into the thirteen teams.
  • Players will each receive four one-hour sort-out times and will be assessed over the course of two weeks.
  • Players will be assessed on their demonstrated skating abilities (technique as well as speed), general hockey skills (passing, shooting, puck handling), and overall hockey sense (hunger for the puck, attitude, team play, instinct, etc.).
  • Goalies will have a separate "goalies only" assessment.
  • You will receive an email from me indicating your sons's first two assigned times.
  • After the first two assigned times, there will be an initial sorting and the second two assigned times will determine the final sorting.
  • Players assessed as peewee A after the first two times will be further assessed on their willingness to engage in the physical part of the game. This body checking clinic is mandatory for those players who wish to play at the peewee A level.
  • Evaluators will have over 200 players to assess. To help us do the best job possible, it is critical that every player attends all four assigned sessions.
  • Sort-outs will likely be the over the nine days between Sat Sept 12 and Sun Sept 19, including some weeknights scheduled. I do not have a schedule or ice times yet to be sure though.
