Knock Off The Rust Clinics & Evaluation Schedules

Knock Off The Rust Clinics & Evaluation Schedules




  • Knock off the Rust Clinics - These one hour clinics are designed to get each level together, get back on the ice, stretch the legs and shake the rust off. Each level has two clinics available. These clinics are not mandatory, but are a great idea to attend. You will see that the Squirt level has a few more clinics available, since we have so many Squirts registered this year. If you are a Squirt, please pick two that work best for your schedule and attend those two. If you are a goalie, please attend as many as you are able. As always, plan on bringing full gear, including mouth and neck guards.


  • Level Evaluations - Each level has been assigned two evaluations. You should attend your level evaluations based on your last name. These evaluations are led by Chiefs coaches, who will run the players through various drills to evaluate each skater's specific and overall skill level. Since the Chiefs are an NWHL affiliated Club, all teams are eventually drafted to be well-rounded and competitive with other NWHL teams. Evaluations are mandatory, as the coaches need to see each player in order to follow the eventual draft process. If you are a prospective goalie, please attend. Our Spiritwear team will also be on-hand at each evaluation to address any Jersey and Sock questions you may have. They will have samples handy should you desire to test sizes. Please note that all Jersey and Sock orders must be made on-line by September 8 to have the items ready for the Pre-Tier season start. As always, plan on bringing full gear, including mouth and neck guards.  Please note that your registration fee included a $250 Evaluation fee, which is non-refundable once your player attends an evaluation. Please keep this in mind should your player be trying out for multiple Clubs. 


In addition to the Clinics and Evaluations, please note the following upcoming, important dates:

  • August 15 - September 8 - Jersey and Sock Sizing @ Sin Bin Hockey Shop @ The Edge and @ Evaluations
