Evaluations

I am 13 and getting my first out of 2 evalutions this friday. There is going to be a shooting, passing, and skating stations for me to be evaluated on. Does anyone have any tips for me to prepare a little bit and to help me not be nervous? Thanks

Just step up and play your heart out. my grandfather told me never give them a reason to cut you or not pick you. dont panic when you have the puck make smart moves out there and do every drill your hardest. and follow through on your passes and shots and if you go to hit someone make it stand out but dont go out of your way to do it.

Actually what I was going to say.

But good luck. I just came back from my tryouts, just work your hardest. I'm assuming that this evaluation is for your league play to even out the teams. Is so, thats what we do also, sometimes they're not so even..

Just don't look at it too seriously. It can cause you to get nervous and overthink simple things. Its a game, play it.

Hard work and pay attention. Don't be the one who screws up a drill because you were not paying attention.

Look up John Shoreys Hockey made easy site. He has some outstanding advice for try outs and evals. A majority of it is mental. Remember why your there...to have fun. First and foremost. With that mental state of mind, you will perform at your best. Be aware...if you dont fall during a drill, to a point, your not pushing out of your comfort zone. Do not worry about falling atc etc. negatives out of the mind, positive and FUN! you cant go wrong....

Do not be a drama queen. Mess up, pick yourself up and move on. No drama, slamming hte stick, looking up at the ceiling etc etc.

Just do the best you can on each and every drill, and make sure you do them all at full speed unless otherwise instructed. Pay atention to the instructions - don't be a "Drill Breaker". If you son't understnd it at first, jump into third or fourth place in line so you can observe.

You're be evaluated for rec so you are not at risk of being cut from a team. Just keep that in mind as you're out there. Don't sandbag in the hopes they evaluate you lower than you are so you can "stack" your team. Just give it your best effort, get your skating legs back and have fun.

Enjoy the season.

Umm if it's just for balancing teams its not really tryouts you can do whatever. In fact to be fun you can skate like you've never been on ice before to mess up the teams equality so you have the better team. yay.

Those stations are stupid they tell very little about how good a player is. It takes a real game to do good evaluations. Also just go hard try and make a big play if you fail they really won't remember that if you go big they'll see that. You can't make it if you just blend in.
