The 2023 Evaluation Dates will be posted under the appropriate tab by December 31, 2022. Evaluations and team formations will take place with the intention of starting game play the week of April 19, 2023.
Please note that the age division names have changed for the 2023 season.
6U is now U7 for those born in 2017,2018,2019
8U is now U9 for those born in 2015, 2016
10U is now U11 for those born in 2013, 2014
12U is now U13 for those born in 2011, 2012
14U is now U15 for those born in 2009, 2010
16U is now U17 for those born in 2007, 2008
Tiering for 2023 has also changed. For the age groups U13, U15, U17 there will be no C divisions - only A and B. As a result, this has changed our evaluation process a little for the coming 2023 season. The biggest change has been at the U13 age group.
At the U13 age group, we will not be hosting separate A Team tryouts for 2023.
How many teams we host each season, at each age level, is entirely based on registration numbers. In the past (pre-Covid), we have been able to predict, with some degree of accuracy, the number of teams we will field each season. For the coming 2023 season, we are predicting that we will have either 5 or 6 teams at U13. This age group has seen some of the most difficult registration numbers to predict post-Covid. If we have 5 teams the tiering document states we enter 1 A team and 4 parity B teams. If we have 6 teams the tiering document states we enter 2 A teams and 4 parity B teams. Registration closes on March 15, 2023 - we will not know how many teams we will be hosting until that date.
Simply stated, we will not know if we are hosting 2 A teams before we are set to begin A tryouts. As a result, we will be running all U13 evaluations at the same time. This will allow us the ability to establish 1 or 2 A teams as required depending on our registration numbers.
