Tryouts Update from Doug Hauser, SYHC Director

Parents & Players of the Strongsville Youth Hockey,

This week we start the evaluation and try-out process for the 2017-2018 season. As we enter this process I wanted the players and parents to have an understanding of my plans for this process. 

First, it is my intention to make this process as transparent as possible. I want every player to have an equal chance. A few of my ideas follow:

  • I have invited Russ Sinckewich from Ohio Hockey Project to aid in developing and helping to keep the process as transparent as possible. I highly respect Russ’s knowledge of the game, and we also share the belief that skating is the cornerstone of any good hockey player. I look forward to working with Russ through this process and during the 2017-2018 season.
  • I have put together a group of people that I respect to aid in the evaluation of players. There will be NO parents evaluating players at the level their son or daughter will be playing at. 
  • The evaluation/try-out process will include skating evaluation, skill evaluation, and scrimmage evaluation. This will allow every player to shine.

Second, It is my intention to create flexibility in the way that teams are formed.  It is a long time between the end of April and the beginning of September. Players sometimes grow or improve during that time period. Last year our organization had no flexibility in moving those types of players up. 

Third, it is my intention to make sure that goaltenders have the same opportunity to shine during this process as skaters do. During the skating session they will have goaltender instruction which gives evaluators the opportunity to watch them. This will also happen during the skill sessions.

I hope that this helps explain a little bit about the process. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Parents, please let your trustees know if your player cannot make a tryout session.

Doug Hauser
Strongsville Youth Hockey Director

2017-18 Strongsville Youth Hockey Club Squirt, Peewee and Bantam Tryouts

The format for tryouts is changing a bit from past years, particularly at the PeeWee and Bantam levels.  SYHC Hockey Director Doug Hauser arranged this tryout schedule to provide the best opportunity to fairly evaluate the players, taking into consideration the number of potential players at that level.  If your son or daughter cannot make any of the scheduled tryouts, please let John Geffert and the appropriate level trustee (Squirt – Mindy Wahl, PeeWee – Giovanna O’Toole, Bantam – Andy Danylchak) know as soon in advance as possible.  Due to the anticipated number of players trying out at the PeeWee level, the players may be split into two groups.

If you have any questions, never hesitate to contact John Geffert or John Grasha.  Click here to view contact info for the board.
