Welcome Back to Hockey!!

For all registered players in VDMHA, hockey starts next week September 7.  Starting with age groups U11 to U18, two shinny games/practices will take place to get the rust off the blades, and get back to having some fun on the ice with friends. 


On the weekend, September 11 and 12, a conditioning camp will be ran by the Vegreville Vipers coaching staff for the U11-U18 group.  This is open to all registered players.


Tryouts and Evaluations will commence on September 13 and will be ran until September 23.  This will ensure that all age groups  get 4 main evaluation sessions.  Evaluations will be conducted by the Head Coach, the Level Director and the Development Director.  There will be a combination of practice drill sessions and game play through this process.  A set of criteria has been established to evaluate each player consistently and fairly.
