• A maximum of 30 participants will be eligible to be on the ice at any assessment skate.
  • This may contain players who have played a similar number of years, or done alphabetically.
  •  It is advised to go with fewer participants on the ice at a time in order to possibly accommodate participants who need to change to a different time due to conflicts.
  • Everyone must be assessed prior to the start of the program.

Assessment day set-up and participant sign in:

  • An identifiable table will be set up 45 minutes prior to the Assessment skate.
  • This table will hold the pinnies (or Tim bit’s Jerseys), sign in sheets and information for the Instructors and Evaluators. Each association will be required to fill this table with volunteers for every Assessment skate.
  • All participants must sign in for their evaluation. At the time of sign in each participant will receive a pinnie number.

Post Assessment:

  • The completed Assessment sheets will be forwarded to Ringette Manitoba by the Head Evaluator and Ringette Manitoba will then create player reports for each association based on the results of the assessment.
  • Associations will then be allowed to form their squads for the year and submit their rosters to Ringette Manitoba for approval.
  • Once approved, squads will be scheduled by Ringette Manitoba for their lessons and games.

Association support during an Assessment:

1.) Provide 2 sheets of ice per 24 – 30 participants from the dates of October 1 and 18.

2.) Schedule and contact players to attend assessment skates. Please emphasis the importance of attending all of the skates.

3.) Schedule and contact coaches (at a ratio of 1 coach for every 5 players) to attend and assist on the ice during assessment skates. Please make sure they know that they need to wear a helmet, have gloves and a stick.

4.) Provide a list for each series of assessment skates that consists of:

Player’s First and Last Name
Current Email Address.

*series refers to each group. Ex. If your association has 60 kids and will be holding 2 separate assessment series, you will need 2 lists. 1 list for each group / series.

5.) Provide each player with a numbered pinnie or jersey (Preferably the same number for the duration of assessments so there is no confusion.)

6.) Provide a registration table at every assessment skate manned with someone from your association to:

Fill out the assessment sheets with correct pinnie numbers
Check in players
Distribute jerseys
Answer questions.

7.) Provide a list of Player’s First Name, Last Name and Jersey number to Ringette Manitoba immediately following each assessment skate so that the results may be tabulated in a timely manner. (Templates will be provided.)
