2020 Boys and Girls Development Program


PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM OVERVIEW

In the New York District, the Boys' Player Development Program offers a process unlike most players are used to competing in.  This highly selective, pyramid style process attempts to identify those players who possess the individual skill to compete at an international level of play.  The NY District staff looks for those players showing the ability to perform at a consistently high level during short-term events such as international festivals, national festivals and development camps.

From the regional try-outs through the district selection camp, players are continually evaluated in this program. We do not look at the success or failure of the team(s) they play on during the season - this is totally inconsequential.  If a player does not advance beyond a regional or district tryout, it was because his performance at that try-out was not at a level of other players attending the same tryout.  This is not a team selection process, but an advancement of players based on individual performance.  The staff strives to establish a level ground on which to evaluate players, and common regional tryouts or sectional evaluations are two of the processes that are used to select players to participate in or advance from any tryout.   There are four age level classifications that are subsequently grouped into two age categories administratively.  Those age groups are 14's, 15's, 16's and 17's.

Deadline for application is Feb 8, 2019

Hello families! 
 
It's that time of year again.
Snow, icy roads and fluctuating weather conditions can make travel difficult.
 
EJYH will make every attempt to notify families of cancellations of practices or games 1 hour prior to the start. Make sure to check the website for changes. 
 
League games,  both home and away, are only canceled in severe circumstances. Cancellations are decided by the Snowbelt association or the home rink. Check with your manager if you have questions.
 
Please take extra precautions when traveling this season. Give yourself extra time and be safe.
 
Go Jackals!!
