Timed-Drill Sessions – Novice, Atom and PeeWee
This year all players in Novice, Atom and PeeWee will participate in a timed-drills skills session for their first evaluation session.
The purpose of the timed-drills is that a player’s performance on the timed-drills will determine those players’ “starting grid” position for Evaluations session #2. For all groups not using timed-drills, (Bantam and Midget) Evaluations starting grid positions for players will be determined by where they played the previous season, as has previously been the practice. For the timed-skills sessions players will be placed in groups of approximately 30 players, however to ensure approximately equal-sized groups for the timed-drills sessions, players may or may not be with players from the team they played with the previous season.
All timed-drills skills sessions will be run by a third party supplier, Fuel Performance Testing. Player performance in the drills will be measured by an electronic timing system using timing gates and all results will be recorded and reported electronically. Glenlake volunteers will assist to ensure the correct players are on the ice for the session, and that those players are equipped with electronic timing device wristbands, but will not be involved in the performance timing or results recording for any player. The electronic timing system being used is the same system used by various Calgary and area hockey associations, by the WHL for its skills testing combines and by various NHL teams to test their prospects. To better understand how the system and equipment will be set up and operates, please see the video found at the following link:
Timed-Drill Guidelines (pdf) Updated Sept. 5, 2019
The drills used are quite basic in design and have been posted below under “Evaluation Skills”. The skills timed during these sessions will include age category appropriate drills for forward skating, backward skating, agility and basic puck handling, and, for Atom and PeeWee players transition skating. Each player will be given two opportunities to complete each drill with their best time for each drill being recorded. At Glenlake’s discretion, where deemed necessary in the interests of fairness, extra opportunities may be provided for a player to complete a drill.
As mentioned above, the results from the skills testing (for all players) will be used to place the players in the appropriate initial group level for the remaining portion of the Evaluations process, starting with Evaluations Session #2. Starting grid positions will be determined by the “average rank” of players for all drills used. In the event of a “ranking” tie between players, the best aggregate (total) recorded time for the drills will be used to break the tie. No scoring from the skills sessions will carry over to the remainder of the Evaluations process.
Subsequent Evaluations sessions will follow the same format as in previous years, with player evaluation, ranking and movement being unchanged and in adherence to the Glenlake Evaluation Guidelines.

Evaluators Information/Training Session
We will be hosting an evaluator training session on Wednesday, September 4th at FCA in the Stu Fairbanks
meeting room starting at 6:30 pm. All new evaluators are encouraged to attend this session to fully understand
the process and requirements. If you miss the meeting, we will post the document online after the meeting under
the Evaluations tab on our website.
Volunteer Evaluator Online Sign-Up
If you are able to help as an evaluator, links to each of the age divisions are posted below:
One change to this year’s process – Parents can NOT evaluate their own child’s session group - meaning - you are able to still evaluate your age group, just not the session your child is participating (this includes Forward and Defense). We have limited the number of sign up online, to help get evaluators evaluating in all sessions.
If you have questions for Glenlake's evaluation team that are not answered in one of the presentations linked above, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
