Skate up requests
by posted 02/24/2018


Skate-up Policy:

This year is all being completed electronically and can be found on the left hand side of our website  Questions should be directed to Vice President of CTA. 

All requests must be made electronically and presented to the Kent Cyclones Board of Trustees no later than the before the board meeting prior to April tryouts (March 12). Requests after this meeting will not be considered. The written request must include a statement (from the parents) of understanding and acceptance of the increased risk that can result while skating at a higher age level.

The KYHA Policy on skating up is that a player cannot be moved up more than one year in age. For example, a first year squirt cannot be moved to the peewee level.   A second year squirt may advance to peewee (or other like skate-ups) provided the following criteria are met: The board must approve all requests for a skate-up try-out and for the final determination to participate at the requested skate-up level.


Players must demonstrate the skill and the mental maturity required to move up and play for the team at the highest skill level.  For example, a Squirt player requesting a skate-up must be able play for the highest skill level Peewee team (most often this is an ‘AA’ team)   the player’s ability will be reviewed by the Coaching and Team Affairs committee. The previous seasons coach will be asked if the player will benefit more from skating up than staying at the current level.

Because the previous year’s coach is contacted; it is assumed the player would make the highest team at their current level; they will only be required to skate for level they are trying out, not both levels.

The player’s ability to participate at the highest skilled team within the requested skate up level will be reviewed by the Coaching and Team Affairs committee. Upon the review of the player’s ability, the Coaching and Team Affairs committee will make a recommendation to the board. The board will then vote for final determination of the skate-up request. If team space becomes an issue, no age appropriate player will be bumped from their level to make room for the skate-up player.
 

The Board reserves the right to reverse its decision in the event that the player has trouble with the move. In this event, the player will then be placed on a team at his correct age level based upon the player’s ability and team availability. NO player will be bumped from a team to make space for a returning skate-up player.
