Empire House Evaluations Completed! What Happens Now? for 2018-19 Season

Hello everyone,

First off thank you to all of the volunteers that helped make our house evaluations run so smoothly. Without our volunteers WYHA would not exist.

So now that house evals are complete what happens next?

  1. We can start to determine how many teams we may have in each division. (RWB, Squirt, Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget.)
  2. We will contact coaches to help place players on teams based on the evaluation and the coaches end of season evaluations (if on a WYHA team last year).
  3. Registration will open up in June and players must be registered and paid by July 31st to be placed on a team. Teams will be announced sometime in mid to late August. Our goal is to announce the teams as soon as possible so coaches and parents can plan for the season ahead.
  4. If you did not make evaluations that is ok. Make sure to register (& pay) for the upcoming 2018-2019 season and your player will be placed on a team. The VP of House will contact you to discuss your player and he/she will be properly placed on a team.
  5. Practices typically begin in September.  Some teams may have with August get-together off ice. Games start in mid to late October.
  6. Look for an email about Registration opening in June and other new, exciting announcements.
