Player Evaluation Jerseys:

A loaner jersey with a number will be provided to players for evaluations. Goalies are asked to bring their own jersey.

Under 10 to Under 18:

Any player hoping to play REP hockey (AA or A) for Stouffville is expected to attend the AA evaluation for their age group. However, for players who do not wish to participate in a league where body checking is permitted are not required to attend AA or A Player Evaluations i.e., they can wait and attend BB Evaluations only if offered.

U12 and up players who try for but fail to obtain a spot on the AA may request an “NRP Passport” if it is determined that there is no Stouffville A Player Evaluations at that level and may attend “A” Player Evaluations at a nearby “A” center. Such players are still eligible to return to Stouffville to try for BB if applicable. Please note: NRP passports to try out at an “A” center will not be issued to players who do not first attend AA Player Evaluations.

Under-age Players:


Players who wish to try out for a Stouffville AA rep team in the next older age group may do so if they obtain a permission-to-skate from the WSMHA Hockey Office prior to the tryout. This is only an option for AA levels.

Formation of Teams Note:

The formation of all teams is dependent on having enough players and goalies, and the availability of a coaching staff. The WSMHA cannot guarantee that all teams listed will be rostered. No tryout refunds will be given if a team cannot be formed.

NRP Info:

Non resident players (NRP) with a "passport" (for AA teams) are not required to register and pay the WSMHA Registration Fee before Player Evaluations but they must complete the WSMHA REP Player Evaluation Registration form and pay the evaluation fee.

AAA Tryouts:

Any Stouffville resident planning to attend a AAA try out must obtain a permission-to-skate form from the Hockey Office prior to the try evaluations. You will not be allowed on the ice without this form. Stouffville residents may try out for Markham Waxers at AAA; they may try out with another AAA team if they first obtain a permission-to-skate from the Waxers. AAA Permission to Skate information page link
