2019 Evaluation Start Dates
SEMI Hockey has made some modifications to the start dates for the Rep player evaluations.
In Atom, SEMI Hockey is taking a leadership position and adopting one of the recommendations of the Hockey Canada Atom Pathway and moving the player evaluations to a later start to reduce a conflict with school start dates. For more information on the Hockey Canada Atom Pathway please see http://www.bchockey.net/Content.aspx?id=319
SEMI Hockey will offer optional pre-evaluation development skates for Atom Rep registrants prior to the commencement of the evaluations, more info and exact dates and times to follow.
Midget Rep start dates have also been pushed back slightly to accommodate the numerous players that are attending conflicting tryouts with Junior and/or Major midget programs.

Shared Rep Teams
SEMI Hockey introduced a motion at the PCAHA AGM to allow for neighbouring associations to be able to work together at the Bantam and Midget level to create additional Rep teams. This means that SEMI has the flexibility to combine with, for example Cloverdale, and create a joint A3 team using players from both associations in the event that a single association does not have enough registrations on their own.
For the 19-20 season SEMI Hockey is planning to declare the following Rep teams in each category.
- Atom A1, A2, A3, A4
- Pee Wee A1, A2, A3, A4
- Bantam A1, A2 – Possible joint A3 opportunity
- Midget A1, A2
Possible 5th Pee Wee Rep Team
Registration numbers for Pee Wee Rep tryouts allow for the potential of adding a 5th Rep team. One consideration for adding this team is an opportunity to test a new programming option. SEMI Hockey is considering adding a 5th team that would be a hybrid between the C Hockey experience and the traditional rep hockey experience. This program would be less intense than a normal rep hockey team, less formal team development sessions, less team practices and a lower commitment and cost threshold. The program would offer more ice times and scheduled games than a C Hockey program and would involve a player selection process and a competitive tryout process.
The selection process for this team is still TO BE DETERMINED
