We have been conducting hockey evaluations for well over 15 years in different capacities, and we are excited to be partnering with many Minor Hockey Association again this year.
PHG is used by sports governing bodies (ie. Minor Hockey Associations) and evaluators (ie. coaches, managers, etc.) to assess, evaluate, aggregate, and analyze amateur athletes skill level and development over time. PHG is proud to have worked with Whitecourt, Beaumont, Edson, Onoway, Westlock, CR Knights and St. Albert Minor Hockey.
See video below of Fusion Sport Smart Speed Technology:
“To provide a fair, consistent, and comprehensive evaluation that will result in players participating at a level that is based upon their skill level when comparing them to athletes of the same age and category.”
Through clear and concise communication, well-planned ice sessions, and evaluator objectivity, every player will receive a fair and meaningful evaluation.
Throughout the evaluation process a 0 - 5 scale will be used to asses each player. 0 being low, and 5 being high. The scale will be relevant to the players age and ability as outlined by Hockey Canada.
