Evaluation Policy and Explanation

SVMHA Testing Stations

A New Evaluation Focus

SVMHA has adopted the use of the Hockey Canada  National Skills Standards and Testing Program (NSST) as the method by which we use objective testing to benchmark all our players in comparison to their peers.  

This is a series of individual skill tests have been designed to measure the skill level of players. The tests will be administered by independent testers.

Once tested, players will be placed with their skill peers and participate in a series of evaluation scrimmages where independent evaluators will use additional drills and game play to identify those players who should be advanced to a higher skill group.

At no point in the evaluation Process will a parent be evaluating their child.
