      • Ice scheduling. Knowing teams will allow us to appropriately schedule practice and game ice for 2019‐2020 season.

      Tryout & Evaluation Overview:

      Objectives of IHWC Spring Tryout Evaluations:

      • Provide a fair and impartial assessment of a player's total hockey skills during skating, small area games and scrimmage sessions
      • Place players on the most appropriate team based on their level of skill, measured against their peer group, during on‐ice evaluations, while also factoring in feedback from previous coaches and certain hockey “intangibles” (e.g. work ethic, coachability, attitude, )
      • Provide uniformity, consistency and transparency in the tryout process such that player and parent expectations are consistent from year to year as players move through the various levels of the IHWC's age groups (8U/Mites, 10U/Squirts, 12U/PeeWee, 14U/Bantam, & High School)
      • Form teams that are competitive at each level and provide the best opportunity for all players to further develop their skills and to HAVE FUN playing hockey
      • Provide feedback in order to enhance the development of each hockey player within

Every player in the 14U and High School program will be required to complete a Baseline test (done every two years) through a complimentary service.  This test is for all players who are of checking age.  The Baseline test is also available complimentary for any IHWC player under the age of 14U upon request to Rangers@IHWinterClub.com.

      Player Tryout Evaluation FAQ’s

      The following are Frequently Asked Questions that hopefully will help build greater understanding and transparency of how the process works:

      1.       When should we arrive for the tryouts?

      Your player should arrive 1 hour before their scheduled tryout. This allows time to go through registration and be ready 10 minutes before the ice time begins for a meeting with the Evaluation Instructor/Club Management. At that time the format for that evening’s tryout session will be explained.

      2.         How many tryout sessions will there be?

      There will be 2 total sessions. The first session will be an overall evaluation of all players. Session 2 will consist of either a call-back or scrimmage amongst all players. 10U/Squirt, 12U/PW and 14U/Bantam tryouts will be 1 hour and 20 minutes with High School being up to 1 hour and 20 minutes.

      3.         Why do we have tryouts?

      IHWC conducts tryout sessions to provide player assessments each season and to place players on teams of parity of skill. The players at each age level are divided according to ability to maximize the potential for each player and each team to improve and have a successful season. The goal of IHWC is to provide the best opportunity for all players to further develop their hockey skills and have FUN!

      4.         Should my son/daughter try out for an “A” level team?

      This question can be answered by referring to your player’s success and growth over the past season in parallel with the feedback provided by your current head coach. Any player of the appropriate age is eligible to try out for the “A” level teams however; it is important parents are realistic in your expectations.

      5.         Are tryouts mandatory for all youth hockey players at IHWC?

      No. The tryout evaluation is only required if your player wants to tryout to play on an “A” level team. The tryouts provide your player to be evaluated against his/her peer group and placed on the appropriate level team. Players who wish to continue with playing on an IHWC’s Rec/B team ARE NOT required to attend any tryout sessions, but ARE required to register for the 2019-20 season by May 16, 5pm.

       

      6.         If my son/daughter was on a team on an A1/A2 team last season, will that mean they automatically make one of the A level teams in the coming season?

      No one is guaranteed placement on any team except the Recreational teams. The tryout format is to compare and assess all players and their abilities to be competitive at the “A” level.  It also takes into account the number of players registered for the 2019-20 season and their skill sets for team placement.

      7.         What if my player cannot make it to the evaluations/tryouts?

      Each player desiring to make an A level team must participate in the evaluation process, absent an injury. If your skater is unable to attend because of injury, you must contact both contacts in advance:

      • Kevin Lord, Director of Ice Operations Klord@IHWinterClub.com                                                                                                          
      • Youth Hockey Committee Rangers@IHWinterclub.com

      No player is guaranteed a spot. If a player has a documented injury and is unable to participate in the tryout process, their team placement will follow a makeup tryout the first week in September 2019.

      8.         Who will do the evaluations?

      There are 3 key groups involved in the evaluations:

      • On‐ice coaches to take players through the
      • Off‐ice independent evaluators who will be responsible to evaluate every player on the ice during the time allotted. There may be on‐ice evaluators depending on the particular situation. Our goal is to have independent evaluators that are members of the IHWC and Cincinnati area hockey community who do not have children in the youth hockey program. The evaluators are the best available most experienced coaches and hockey players that will give us the best evaluations These evaluators will be located around the rink evaluating the players.
      • Off‐ice administrators who will be responsible for collecting

      9.         What should my son/daughter wear to the tryout?

      Full equipment is always mandatory. This includes a protective cup, shin pads, hockey pants, shoulder pads, elbow pads, skates, hockey gloves, hockey stick and a USA Hockey approved helmet and full shield and a mouthguard. Players will be provided from IHWC a white or dark jersey they will wear to each tryout session and return at the end of tryouts. 

      10.      Will the player be evaluated in a skill and game environment?

      In order to give each and every player a fair opportunity to exhibit the range of skills that they possess they will be evaluated within skill stations, small area games, and full ice environments. At the younger age levels a greater emphasis will be placed on the evaluation of skills; as the players get older the small area game and scrimmage sessions will have a greater overall impact on the player’s placement.

      11.      Will the prior season evaluation information be used?

      The tryout process will include prior season assessments and feedback from their prior year coaches. Players will be selected not only on individual skills but also several intangible traits. These traits are as follows:

      • Attendance & Commitment
      • Player’s commitment, as specified by his or her previous seasons’ coaches, will be used as a critical factor in final player A player’s commitment to the program and more specifically, their team, will not be over‐looked or taken for granted
      • Attitude & Behavior
      • Determination, drive, intensity, work ethic
      • Discipline
      • Positive team attitude & player
      • Coachability
      • Hockey is a team sport and individuals with stronger skills but who are selfish can often be counterproductive to achieving team goals and upset team Hockey is a long season and the right team chemistry (on and off the ice) is crucial to a successful program. IHWC will keep this in mind when making team selections.

      12.      What happens after the evaluation sessions? How are the players notified of their team placement?

      Parents/players will be notified of their team placement by viewing on the IHWC website.

      IHWC Website Hockey Youth Hockey 2019‐20 Tryout Rosters Announcement

      Rosters will be posted within 48 hours of each final age division tryout session (see chart below). Parents will login and identify the player’s “unique tryout number”. The unique tryout number will not be the player jersey number.

      If an age division offers two A level teams, the rosters will be identified as such. 
      Example:              Bantam A1 Roster or Bantam A2 Roster

      13.      When does the player have to accept the spot on the team?

      Players will have one week from posted results to accept a roster spot on the team (acceptance dates referenced in table above). All players will pay a $250 deposit upon registration and acceptance of roster spot.  If player is a non-member, an IHWC membership application has to be submitted to reserve the roster spot as well as the $250 deposit.

      14.      What if my player is offered a roster spot on a team, but wishes to play on the next team? Example: Player is offered a spot on Squirt A1 and wants to play on Squirt A2?

      A request in writing from the parent/guardian can be submitted to YHC Committee for review. Teams are selected for parity of skill and competition and the request will be reviewed and consider all parties involved.

       

      Teams & Team Composition

      10U/Squirt, 12U/Peewee & 14U/Bantam


      Thank you to our Rangers Youth Hockey and High School families who successfully registered for the 2018-19 season and purchased the new Rangers uniform package by our May 18 deadline.  This is the first time in IHWC history our youth team formation process (for all ages and compete level) was complete in the Spring before the club closes for the summer break.  
      THANK YOU for your help in meeting our club’s youth hockey goal!   


      2018-19 Rangers Jersey Number Assignment:

      CLICK HERE FOR ASSIGNMENT BY PLAYER 
      85% of players 10U Squirt to High School received their jersey # 1st or 2nd request.
      At registration for the 2018-19 season each 10U/Squirt to High School player provided their top five (5) jersey number requests. All jersey number requests were taken into consideration to not have a duplication of player jersey numbers within years players may be rostered together.  If you have a question on your player's jersey #, please click here
      Guidelines:
      Players with the longest IHWC playing tenure with current numbers and earlier '18-'19 season registrations will be given preference.
      2000-2005 (HS to Bantam):
      Manage minimal duplication of jersey numbers understanding High School is a four year roster of birth years. If duplicate jersey # is given for Bantam/HS crossover, starting in '19-20 season, the lesser tenured player is required to purchase new jersey with new number and relinquish jersey # to tenured HS player.
      2004-2009 (Bantam to Squirt):
      Manage minimal duplication of jersey numbers for birth year +/- one birth year.  Example:  2006 birth year player will not have the same jersey number as a 2005 and/or 2007 player.


      2018-19 Committed Rosters:

      The following are the committed IHWC Rangers 10U, 12U and 14U youth hockey teams following Spring & Fall 2018 team formation.  A team may include open skater/goalie positions on the roster.
