Max EA report cards

Max EA offers report cards based on player performance in evaluations. Report cards are not included in registration fees and can be purchased after evaluations if parents wish.

Tryout Convenors

SJAMHA hockey directors volunteer as tryout convenors to assist and help oversee evaluations so they run smoothly. Tryout convenors do not influence the evaluation process.

U7 (Timbits)

Evaluations do not typically take place at the U7 level as players are usually grouped with others from their local community club.

U9 (Novice)

Players at the U9 level can try out for the U9A team if they wish, but this is not mandatory. Players who do not opt to try out for U9A will be placed on a U9 House League team.


Evaluations are mandatory at these levels. Players who opt to not attend evaluations will be placed directly at the A3 level.


Players can choose to try out for the AA Canadians at the U13, U15 and U18 levels


Players can choose to try out for AAA hockey at the U15 and U18 level.
