Player Evaluation Process--Condensed Version
by CYH Board of Directors posted 03/22/2019

Crusaders Youth Hockey holds evaluations each year for players entering U8 and above. These evaluations are conducted in order to create the teams for the next hockey season. The number of teams for each level may vary from year to year depending on the number of registered players. Players are placed on teams based on three main factors:

  • live evaluation scores
  • coaches' rating of the player over the whole season
  • intangibles (coachability, attitude, etc.).

For the full description, click on https://leagueathletics.com/Page.asp?n=43308&org=WWQW.GJHA.NET, which is on the CYH website under Program Information.


Players will obviously have a range of strengths and weaknesses; their scores will help to create teams of players that will complement each other’s skills. Many players are often in the same range of evaluation scores.  If skill level is greater, that is the determining factor in placement.  When the 3 evaluation items are equal, 2nd-year players may have preference.  


There is also value in keeping teammates together to encourage the comradery and teamwork that has been formed in past years. Youth sports are so much more than just growing hockey skills. It teaches kids how to work together, rely on others, be part of a group effort, experience winning and losing, and develop as a person and an athlete.


The initial rosters are released prior to the start of the season and changes may be made due to new registrations, players withdrawing, or if a player has been placed above or below their skill set. All members who take part in the evaluation and team forming process are volunteers and strive to give each player the very best opportunity within the Crusaders Youth Hockey organization.  


For any further evaluation/placement matters, contact Mike Eagleston mikeeagleston@gmail.com.  Brendan Mcnabb E: nellmcnabb@hotmail.com is available as the Player Rep also.
