Information for these events are listed below:

New York District Evaluation Weekend
         This weekend provides an opportunity for all female players in New York to be evaluated by a qualified staff
of college and youth coaches to determine skill level appropriate for a USA Hockey National, or potential In-District
Player Development Camps. Evaluation Weekend details are listed below:

   Held in Cicero, New York from March 20 -22, 2009 for players with birth years 1995 - 1992. Only these birth
    years are eligible to participate.
   Tryout FEE - $70. Due to the financial obligations associated with holding this event, the fee is NON-
    REFUNDABLE. Players not registered with USA Hockey may tryout, but will be charged an additional
    Individual Membership Registration fee.
   Players will be grouped according to national camp birth years as follows:
            o 1992 for the USA Hockey National 17 Camp
            o 1993 for the USA Hockey National 16 Camp
            o 1994 for the USA Hockey National 15 Camp
            o 1995 for the USA Hockey National 14 Camp

 Players will be notified of team assignments and schedules VIA E-MAIL on or BEFORE FEBRUARY 28,
2009.
 A jersey will be issued at the time of check-in. Players will be allowed to keep the jerseys at the completion of
the evaluations.
 All players will be notified by E-MAIL ONLY as to the evaluation results. National camp placements will also be
published on the NYS Web site.
 Players selected to certain USA Hockey National Camps may conflict with the NYS Regents exam schedule!
Please check with your school prior to the evaluation weekend.
 Player selection is based on the evaluation done at this WEEKEND! Players need to attend all scheduled
sessions in order to be ranked fairly.
 Players MAY ONLY TRYOUT FOR ONE POSITION!

Evaluation Process
The evaluators rate all players that attend and rank them by position within the appropriate birth year
classifications. In addition, players are given a letter score that reflects the evaluator’s perception of the skill level
demonstrated during the weekend. Letter scores are provided to all players, along with a recommendation for
future player development. Development opportunities include USA Hockey National Camps, USA Hockey At-
Large Candidate, or In-District Camps. NO OTHER SKILL ANALYSIS OR EVALUATION INFORMATION WILL
BE PROVIDED! Please understand that these scores are based only on your PERFORMANCE THIS
WEEKEND and may not be an entirely accurate reflection of your ability as a player.

IN-DISTRICT CAMP INFORMATION
 Zone Development Camps
For the past two summers zone development camps have been held in each section of the state. These were met
with great enthusiasm and will continue this year. General Camp information is listed below.
 Zone dates, locations, and times are being finalized and will be announced at the Evaluation Weekend or
    sooner via e-mail and on the NYSAHA web site.

    availability of staff – No Overnight Campers
