Parents of a player in the Atom, Pee Wee, Bantam divisions who believe that their child’s hockey skills have surpassed the age level they are in, may apply to the Executive, in writing, to move the player to a higher division. The player will first be evaluated by the team’s coaches of the higher division. The Head Coach will make a recommendation to the Executive. If the coaches cannot reach a decision, the Executive will appoint an independent team of three evaluators to further evaluate the player. The evaluators will make a recommendation to the Executive. The Executive decision is final.
There are three significant criteria in factoring player movement: space limitations on the receiving team; the ability of the player to play in the higher division, and the effect the player movement will have on the lower division team.
If a player is judged by their coach as having skill below their age level the coach may make a recommendation to the Division Manager, after consultation with the parent, to place the player in a lower division as an ‘over-age’ player. The Division Manager decision is final. All over-age requests must be submitted to WKMHA for approval.
All players will start the season in their proper divisions.
