2015 - 2016 Peewee Program

Player Registration




Updated August 25, 2015



The current registration numbers in Peewee are as follows:

Goalies - 15 plus 9 cuts from the AA tryouts = 24 (2 goalies also want to play out)
Defence - 45 plus 30 cuts from the AA tryouts = 75
Forwards - 101 plus 36 cuts from the AA tryouts = 137

Based on these number I would estimate drafting 15 teams as follows:

Goalies - 6 teams with 1 goalie and 9 teams with 2 goalies (accounting for the 2 goalies that want to play out)
Defence - 15 teams with 5 defence
Forwards - 13 teams with 9 forwards and 2 teams with 10 forwards


I currently have 11 applications for the estimated 15 coaches for the Peewee interlock co-ed program.

I estimate the 15 Peewee Co-Ed Teams will be placed into Federation as follows:

Tier 2 - 2 teams
Tier 3 - 3 teams
Tier 4 - 3 teams
Tier 6 - 3 teams
Tier 7 - 2 teams
Tier 8 - 2 teams


COACH SELECTION


I would like to share some of the factors that go into coach selection:

1) Most important, if the coach has a player in the process, is where the player evaluates - I believe the players tell me where the coaches will coach.
2) I will not move a player down for a coach but will not hesitate to move a player up for a coach.  Explanation:

In the player selection process the coaches in the room will see players beyond the numbers they are permitted to take.
For example - the two Tier 2 teams may see 1.5 times the players they are selecting - so if each team is taking 5 defence, then they will be permitted to look at the top 15 defence.
So if the child of a prospective coach ranks as the #15 defence, he is on the Tier 2 selection sheet, he could be selected at Tier 2, so if I do not have a coach at the Tier 2 range, I can move that player and coach up to Tier 2.

3) On the opposite end, I will not move a player down for a coach.  Explanation:

In the example noted above, that 15th ranked defence has the possibility of playing:
 
        1) At the Tier 2 range, if he is picked early
        2) At the Tier 3 range, if he is picked in his range
        3) At the Tier 4 range, he becomes as "must pick" for these coaches.

I don't believe it is fair to the player if I need a coach at Tier 4, to move that player down, just to get a coach.  The player worked hard to evaluates where he does, so I can't move him down just to have a coach.

4) History with SAMHA - this is a wide range of information from discussions with the Atom, Novice and Initiation Directors, discussions with parents and players and reviewing parent surveys conducted at the end of last season.

5) Dedication - the amount of time present during evaluations watching the players to ensure if they are successful in getting a team, that they are able to select the best and most appropriate team for that level.

Please contact me if you have any enquiries regarding coaching at Peewee this season.

COACHING APPLICATIONS for the 2015-2016 season - anyone interested in coaching for next
season can submit their application to me at
peeweedirector@samha.ca or drop it off to the SAMHA office.

Please include:

- Coaching Application - 2015-2016 form

- FOIP form (if SAMHA does not have one on file - for new coaches only)

- Valid Criminal Record Check (if SAMHA does not have one on file - lasts three years)

Forms and details of each can be found above under the TABS (click on "FORMS" then click "COACH FORMS")

I would appreciate applications as early as possible so we can talk about coaching and I can use you to assist in evaluations which also enables you to get more familiar with the players. Further, this helps me know where the levels I have to look for coaches as I won't move a player down just to have a coach.

Early submission of applications ensures time to complete the Criminal Record Check which can be a lengthy process.

Any coach, assistant coach and/or manager planning on going on the team roster needs to register online.


Please note: For the 2015/2016 season, Hockey Alberta had the following Coach Education Requirements that had to be completed prior to November 15, 2015:

The Coach Education Requirements for Head Coaches for the Peewee division are as follows:

1) Coach 2 - Coach Level

2) Checking Skills


Further, two coaches on the Official Team Roster must have:

3) Safety


Finally, all coaches on the Official Team Roster must have:


4) Respect in Sport - Coach Level

5) Valid Criminal Record Check.
