Evha mission

EVHA Mission

  • Eastview Hockey Association (EVHA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a fun and educational experience for the children residing in the Eastview High School Attendance area or who are eligible to play in the EVHA who wish to play ice hockey. Our curriculum stresses basic skills, encourages team play and sportsmanship, and strives for fair playing time for all players. The individuals who teach this curriculum, in all cases, have completed one or more courses in the USA Hockey Coaches’ Education Program (CEP). EVHA’s coaches and Board of Directors, through such things as our Code of Conduct, also are committed to teaching players to respect their opponents and the officials.

Skill development clinic

Skill Development Clinic

  • Clinics this year were led by our Varsity Hockey Coach (Drey Bradley)

    • Saturdays and Sundays are skill sessions and during the week will be scrimmages. Coach Bradley will lead all weekend sessions along with current HS players.

    • We held solo sessions focused on goalie skills on September 14 and 15 for goalies at all levels.

    • The website has all dates and times, sessions are divided up by alphabet.

    • The Clinics run from 9/14 – 9/25, all sessions are at HAYES Arena.

Tryouts 2013 2014

Tryouts: 2013-2014

  • Tryouts for this year will begin on Sat 9/28 - all sessions will be at Hayes Arena

    • Tryouts this year will again be closed to parents. Once the tryouts begin, parents will not be allowed in the arena. Board members will also not be allowed in the arena during the time that their son is trying out.

    • We have independent evaluators from outside the association doing all of our scoring. Additionally at the Peewee and the Bantam level the A coach will also score, at the Squirt level we will be utilizing only the independent evaluators.

    • Goalies will be evaluated at The Pond and during the scrimmage sessions at Hayes. Goalies will be evaluated by an independent evaluator.

    • Our tryout skill drills are currently on the website, we will run through the four drills during the squirt and peewee first tryout session. Each drill will run approximately 12 minutes and each player will have multiple times to do each skill drill, we will be utilizing the full hour for skills.

    • The skill drills are slightly different for Squirts and Peewees, the expectations are higher for the Peewees. All drills were recommended by USA Hockey

    • Skills will be 20% of the total score for Squirts and 15% for Peewees. Bantams will be 100% based on scrimmages. Goalies at all levels are evaluated based on 20% skills & 80% scrimmages.

    • The final scrimmage for the Top 20 Peewees and Bantams will be a “game” against an outside association. This is where the coaches will make their non-lock picks.

Tryouts 2013 2014 squirts

Tryouts: 2013-2014Squirts

  • The number of players on the A/B and C teams will depend on the total number of kids trying out. Typically each team has approximately 13 – 15 players. The independent evaluators scores will determine the teams.

  • The skill portion of the tryouts will account for 20% of the tryouts and the scrimmages will be 80%. The skill drills are on the website and consist of forward crossovers, backward crossovers, transitional skating, stick-handling and shooting.

  • Evaluators are grading on the total hockey player: overall hockey sense, playmaking ability, speed, etc. It is not who scores the most goals gets the highest score.

  • Goalie evaluations will be based on all scrimmage sessions scored plus the skill session at The Pond. The goalie skill session is 20% of the total score and the scrimmages are 80%.


Tryouts 2013 2014 peewees

Tryouts: 2013-2014Peewees

  • Peewees first session will be a skill session and account for 15% of their total score. Tryout drills are on the website, the drills are from USA hockey and recommended for a Peewee player.

  • The following sessions will be scrimmage sessions of either 4 on 4 or 5 on 5 depending on the number of players trying out. We will then have approximately 20 skaters and 2 goalies participate in a scrimmage with Roseville. This session will be run by the Peewee A Head Coach. He will be utilizing this session to make his coaches picks.

  • Goalies will have scrimmage sessions scored as well as the skill session at The Pond. At Peewees the skill session at The Pond accounts for 20% and the scrimmage sessions account for 80%.

  • The top 2/3rd of the total team size determined by the Board will be locks. The “A” head coach will select the remaining players from a pool consisting of the players ranked through 20. Ex. if there are 14 players on the “A” team 9 players will be locks and 5 players will be coaches picks.

Tryouts 2013 2014 bantams

Tryouts: 2013-2014Bantams

Bantams will begin with a 4 on 4 session followed by two 5 on 5 sessions. After the final 5 on 5 session approximately 20 skaters and 2 goalies will participate in a scrimmage with Roseville. This session will be run by the Bantam A Head Coach, he will be utilizing this session to make his coaches picks.

Similar to Peewees, the top 2/3rd of the total team size determined by the Board will be locks. The “A” head coach will select the remaining players from a pool consisting of the players ranked through 20.

Just like the Peewee level, the Bantam goalie skill session will be held at The Pond in Rosemount. 80% of the evaluation will be based on the scrimmage sessions and 20% will be on the skills’ component.
