EVALUATION SKATE INFORMATION

Hello Cleveland Barons /Strongsville 8U Parents,

It is hard to believe the summer is coming to an end and the kids will be starting school soon and we will be starting hockey soon.  The first two weeks of skates will be evaluation skates where we will be watching the players and working towards putting them together with players of similar skill set.  In order to see them in different scenarios the first skate will be divided alphabetically and then the next two skates will be divided by birth year.  

Please review the following schedule and make sure you attend on the proper day.  

Monday 8/27- 5:50 to 6:50 PM – Players with the last names “A to G”  

Tuesday 8/28- 5:50 to 6:50 PM---Players with the last names “H to P”

Wednesday 8/29- 5:50 to 6:50 PM—Players with the last names “Q to Z”

Thursday 8/30- 5:50 to 6:50 PM---Players born in the birth year 2010

Friday 8/31- 5:50 to 6:50 PM---Players born in the birth year 2011

Friday 8/31- 7:00 to 8:00 PM---Players born in the birth year 2012/2013/2014

Tuesday 9/4--  5:50 to 6:50 PM---Players born in the birth year 2010

Wednesday 9/5--  5:50 to 6:50 PM---Players born in the birth year 2011

Thursday 9/6--  5:50 to 6:50 PM---Players born in the birth year 2012/2013/2014

Please try and have your player dressed and ready to go on the ice 10 minutes before the start time.  We put them into stations and it gets difficult when players come on the ice late.  There will be a sign in table when entering the facility, please check your player in and make sure they get their name put on the front and back of their helmet.   

Any parents interested in coaching, please make sure to reach out via email rkrosky@amgen.com and get the coaching application and the list of requirements for USA Hockey and the program.  

September 7th- Players will be divided into specific divisions (Red, White, Blue).  The divisions are set up to have the kids play with players of similar skill sets.  This will help with their development long term - each division will have 2-3 teams that won’t finalized by this date.  We will need more time to watch the kids practice and play with the same level kids until we finalize teams.  This information will be communicated to each player from Lisa Sukenik on which group the player should show up for on Sunday, 9/9.  There will also be the practice time for that Sunday.

September 9th—PLEASE PLAN ON ATTENDING:  Divisional meetings for each level for parents explaining our philosophy, meeting the coaches, discussing the plan for the season, a copy of the schedule for the first two months, and question/answer sessions.

September 10th to 23rd—We will still be evaluating the players to make sure they were placed properly in the level (Red, White, Blue).  We will move players to make sure they are with kids of similar skills.  At the completion of 9/23- the Red, White, and Blue level will be further divided into teams.  They will then be notified who the coaches will be for their team. If you have any questions before the next email, please contact me at rkrosky@wowway.com
