Recreation Evaluations


2021-22 Season

Evaluations for our U11 to U18 recreational teams will be held from October 8th to October 13th, 2021 at the HRM 4-Pad (formerly BMO Centre) in Bedford. 

As part of the evaluation process, all players who registered for recreational play for the 2021/2022 season will receive at least two sessions.  The first session will be a skills-based set of station drills much like our core skills program.  Our second session will be an intra-squad game of balanced teams based on the outcomes of the skills-based session.  At the end of these session each play will have a final evaluation score that is used to assist us in drafting balanced teams across the organization

Players who participated in the competitive try-out process will have the scores they received during those evaluations used for the recreational draft process. 



Player groupings will be posted on this site Monday October 4th, 2021.  At this time, we cannot accommodate requests to changes groups.  If a player is unable to attend their evaluation session(s) they will be ranked into the draft based on their last years evaluations and coach’s feedback.

For the intra-squad games team will be posted at least 24-hours prior to the scheduled game, please check back here for an update.

Friends and Family Requests

Parents of BDMHA players may request that their player be placed on the same team as another player.  These requests are to be submitted via email to the Divisional Coordinator and VP of Recreation (, prior to the player selection meeting. BDMHA will do its best during the draft process to fulfill these requests; however, it should be noted that the balancing of teams will take precedence over any friends and family requests.
