AAA Female Program for 2020-2021
We are ready to start the AAA Female program for this season. We will be offering programs in U13, U15, and U18 in each of our AAA zones.
The plan for the season will have two components:
1. Players will be selected in each zone via a tryout process. Each team may select up to 20 players and 4 goalies. This will allow the players to be divided into 2 groups and facilitate 2-line hockey games as well as skill-based sessions. Only players that are registered in female hockey will be eligible to try out pursuant to AAA Policy rule 1.4.
2. As the NL Sport Guidelines currently restrict competition between health regions, we cannot offer the traditional series of AAA league weekends. To supplement the intrazone play we are partnering with Hockey Development (High Performance Program) to offer weekend development camps. The camps are not mandatory as players can choose to register for all or some of the camps.
U13 will have camps in Jan and Feb. U15 and U18 will have camps in Dec, Jan, and Feb. Camps will be held in various zones depending on ice availability.
These camps are meant to provide a higher level of skill development for our high performance female players. Only players registered in the AAA program in their zone will be eligible to attend these camps.
Note : The March weekend format will depend on CMO guidelines around tournaments and regional competition. In the event we are allowed to participate in an Atlantic championship a final roster will be selected from the list of 24 players in each zone and a playdown event will be held.
