What happens during week 1? Many divisions undertake a player assessment. YMHC hires professionals to run an assessment - a series of drills which enable your convenor and coaches to assess player skill levels and create balanced teams.

What team will my child be on? For divisions which conduct a player assessment during week 1 the convenor then creates the teams. You will be advised by your convenor after week 1 assessments are conducted and at least 2 days before your 1st game during week 2 which team you are on. This information will be communicated by teamSNAP. For those divisions which do not conduct an assessment regular season play will commence during week 1. Your convenor will contact you at least 2 days prior to your 1st game via teamSNAP.

teamSNAP: teamSNAP is a very important divisional communication tool used by YMHC. For more information on teamSNAP, please click here. It is very important than you use teamSNAP.
