Senior B & C Open Draft

20/03/2017

Senior B & C will be holding an open draft in preparation for the 2017 Season. IHACT draft days are designed to provide teams in each grade with a chance to evaluate the skill level of players (male and female) wanting to enter their relevant grade. This is done so teams can then select and put forward a mandatory full roster for the current calendar season. If a team has a full roster from a previous season, then that team is not required to attend a Draft day. All other teams are required to be in attendance.

Senior B Draft

When: Monday 20th March 2017

Time: 8:00pm to 9:00pm

Where: Phillip Ice Skating Rink

Cost: $20 per person

Senior C Draft

When: Monday 20th March 2017

Time: 9:00pm to 10:00pm

Where: Phillip Ice Skating Rink

Cost: $20 per person

Players need to have all their own gear and bring a numbered jersey to the draft. All players should arrive no later than 30 minutes before the draft start time to confirm their presence with IHACT officials.

All players new and existing who have expressed an interest in playing B or C are welcome to attend. Players that played up regularly in 2016 but were not on a Senior B or C team list must attend the draft session.

Player Eligibility

Players wanting to enter a league must have demonstrated the minimum skills outlined in the relevant criteria to the satisfaction of the League Coordinator and the Head Coach. It is therefore a requirement that all players wanting to advance a grade (or who have not played in the association during the previous season and are now wanting to return) *MUST* attend the relevant Draft session.

The anticipated the minimum entry level skills for grades are as follows:

It is anticipated that players commencing in C Grade will be able to:

  • Hockey stop on at least one side
  • Skate backwards
  • Power turn
  • Alternate dropping one knee to the ice and standing back up between blue lines (demonstrating balance)
  • Puck handle during most drills

It is anticipated that players commencing in B Grade will be able to:

  • Hockey stop on both sides
  • Skate backwards steadily and at a reasonable speed
  • Cross over both sides, going both forward and backwards
  • Alternate dropping one knee to the ice and standing back up between blue lines (demonstrating balance)
  • Puck handle during all drills
