Player Evaluations

All registered players in Grade 1 through 12 (Mites through Bantam) are required to attend the RCFHA Player Evaluations on Saturday, September 23rd at Burnett Secondary.

Please note the following important information:

  • Players that are not yet registered are still allowed to attend evaluations (please let the registration desk know if you are not yet registered)
  • If teams need re-balancing after the season has started, it may be necessary to swap players between teams. Players to be moved will be chosen in this order:
    1. Players that did not attend evaluations and were not registered by September 23rd will be the first to be moved
    2. Players that did not attend evaluations but were registered by September 23rd will be second in line to be moved
    3. Players that did evaluate but were not registered by September 23rd will be the last to be moved

These are not tryouts but just a simple assessment of each player’s skill and experience level which will help us to form more balanced and fair teams. Players simply need to come out and play like they would at any regular season game.

The evaluation will involve playing in a 20 min. scrimmage with players in the same age bracket, followed by some simple skills drills in the small gym. New players are encouraged to review the rules on our website however, penalties and running fouls will not be called, but may be pointed out to the player as necessary. Players should wear their knee and shin pads (new players unsure of equipment, please see our FAQ on our website).

There will be a 1.5 hour time block for each division. Players will be taken in on a first come first serve basis so please arrive 1/2 an hour before your division’s time slot. All players must register upon arrival between the registration window for their division as listed below in order to participate:

Saturday, September 23rd:

Mites (2009/2010) – 9:00am (registration from 8:30am – 9:45am)

Junior Squirts (2007/2008) – 10:30am (registration from 10:00am – 11:15am)

Protective Eye Wear

Not long ago, athletes rarely wore eyewear specifically designed to protect their eyes during sports, and sports-related eye injuries were widespread. Today, sports eyewear can be spotted on almost anyone who picks up a ball, bat, racquet or stick — whether they play in the major leagues or the Little League.
