All new players to the AHA are required to attend an Evaluation. At our Evaluation you will be run through a few on-ice drills and then have a scrimmage in the time remaining. During this time our team of evaluators will determine what level of play you are best suited for. Free agent players are entered into the draft where teams that need players have an opportunity to pick up new talent. If you are new to the AHA and looking for a team, you can register for the Winter Program individually and then be placed in our free agent draft which will be held in early October. At that point you will be selected by a team in need of players and will be notified once you are selected.
Evaluations are divided up into higher and lower level players. If you are trying out for a specific team, please sign up for the level at which the team currently participates in the Winter.
If you are joining the league individually and would like to be placed on a team, below are some guidelines to follow when determining which session to attend:
B Level: Players with quite a bit of experience growing up, up to and including High School.
C Level: Players may have some organized experience growing up (Pee Wees/Bantams) and have played some organized hockey as an adult.
D Level: Players with very little organized experience growing up (Mites/Squirts or pond/pickup hockey.)
If you are brand new to the sport of hockey with no organized experience previously, you should consider our Beginner School.
To be assigned a spot in an Evaluation you must register online. We do not accept walk-up registrations unless previously arranged by the Registration Coordinator.
When you attend an Evaluation we request that you bring full equipment for your own protection. Please arrive 45 minutes before the Evaluation to check in and get dressed. You will need to participate in the session for the full 90 minutes. More details will be emailed to you shortly before your scheduled evaluation session.
