VERSION 13 - POSTED APRIL 30th, 2019
EXHIBITION GAMES ADDED FOR MAY 4th
The CYGHA is thrilled to have two highly experienced non-parent coaches to run the two Bantam A programs for the 2019-2020 season. Both programs will follow our High Performance model and will focus on player development to try and give every player on both teams the opportunity to succeed at the highest level in future years.
From a team selection perspective, 'Bantam A Red - John Stolys' will select the first team and 'Bantam A Blue - John Morning' will select the second team. The coaches will collaborate to determine the selections that best fit their overall team goals. Given the depth of our current Bantam A and Peewee AA programs, we expect both teams to be very competitive.
For the first time, the CYGHA will offer two Bantam BB teams for the 2019/2020 season. The Bantam BB teams will follow a Major/Minor split for team selection. Coach Hearty (Bantam BB Blue) will select from major players first (born in 2005) and Coach Green (Bantam BB Red) will select from minor players first (born in 2006).
The first tryout will be "combined" and will include all players looking to play Bantam BB next season. After this tryout is complete, players will either be invited back to the next Bantam BB Blue (Hearty) tryout, the next Bantam BB Red (Green) tryout, or be released.
The coaches will collaborate to determine the selections that best fit their overall team goals and as such, there may be some exceptions to the major/minor split.
Chris Buckley & JP Rosevear, are excited to be coaching Midget BB teams for the upcoming season and will work together closely to best support organizational and team goals. From a team selection process, during the upcoming 2019/2020 tryouts 'Midget BB Blue – Chris Buckley' will select first and 'Midget BB Red – JP Rosevear' will select second. Both coaches will collaborate with each other and the 5th Midget team (B/BB) to ensure that all 3 teams provide excellent development opportunities for all players.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the coaches if you have questions.
This impacts 2011 birth year (and younger):
The OWHA has not yet published the guidelines for how the rep programs for Novice will be allowed to function. These rules will be based on the Hockey Canada program that is being instituted for all boys and girls associations.
If there is a Novice Rep program, coach selection and tryouts will not occur until the fall. Stay tuned for further information.
Please take the time to review the CYGHA Rep Policy document (link below) for all tryout and residency rules before attending tryouts.
The following describes the minimum level a player needs to start tryouts at.
PLEASE NOTE: This policy does not apply to players entering Bantam or older.
