During the early parts of the hockey season, September and October, I get to reconnect with our players from previous years and I start to map out which spots we have to fill on our rosters. We manage 30+ teams so reconnecting with our returning players sparks a lot of conversations about what is in store for their upcoming seasons. Next, we scan all tournaments that are suitable for our scouts to attend and start recruiting players to join our program. From November to March, we attend games, practices, and tournaments watching and recruiting players to join our Prospects teams. We are not recruiting for a big commitment with many tournaments and practices. We are recruiting to invite players to participate in a fun environment, where you meet new friends, experience new coaches, and enjoy the City of Kingston for one tournament held May 31- June 2, 2019.
What Does It Mean To Be A “Prospects Player”?
When players join our Prospects Team for the first time, there is a feeling of curiosity. After all, our Prospects Team plays in only one tournament (sometimes two) and many of the players meet each other for the first time just before their first game. How can they possibly compete with these other teams? During this short-term competition, our coaches lead their teams throughout the weekend, often developing to new friendships and an experience like no-other.
We look for players who are great teammates. Becoming a Prospects Player is more than just power and size. It is more than being able to skate and control the play. You must believe in yourself, you must play with confidence and with character. Check out more information here about our Prospects profiles www.relmsports.com/what-is-a-prospects-player
Who Coaches Our Prospects Players?
We hire experienced, non-parent coaches who are fantastic hockey minds. The range of experience includes high school principals with 25 years coaching experience, OHL & QMJHL, NCAA, NHL, AHL, ECHL, USports (CIS), Olympics, CWHL, SPHL, AIHL, CJHL, and various other leagues. Our coaches believe in development and encouraging fun. Our coaches know what it takes to prepare for optimal performance. More importantly, our coaches are here for the kids. Our coaches have helped countless players with connections to various opportunities to play at their desired school or team.
What’s Planned for 2019?
As usual, we are recruiting for each age group for our Girls Ontario Prospects Hockey Challenge held in Kingston May 31 – June 2, 2019. We are also rejuvenating our uniforms – stay tuned for the release of the new design in January!
