Your unique PlayerId will be emailed to you one week to the first evaluation session. Select an evaluation sessionto view your next session or team selection. 

If you did not receive your PlayerId, please contact the Registrar.

If you encounter any problems please contact the VP of A Hockey for your age group.

Please note that the results/scores determined by the evaluators will not be available online. Players may contact the VP of A Hockey for your age group or a member of the Evaluation Committee for further information.

Tryout Information

The Royals A Hockey evaluations will be performed by independent evaluators hired by REMHA. Players will be evaluated by the same group of evaluators for A1, A2 and A3 team formation. What this means is that all players within REMHA will be evaluated together for each level. This will reduce the amount of ice used during tryouts and help us make better use of our resources. This will also result in additional practice ice for October.

REMHA has implemented the online Hockey Canada Registration (HCR) system.  Please visit our Registration section here for further information regarding the changes to the registration process this season.

It is VERY important that you attend the evaluation session that you have been assigned. If you can not make it to that session (or any session) please contact the VP of A Hockey for your age group.

If you do not wish to attend evaluations and be placed immediately on an A3 team, PLEASE contact the VP of A Hockey for your age group.
