WKMHA Rep AP Process

    • Tier 2 releases are added to roster as AP players
    • Tier 3 releases are added to roster as AP player
      • In some cases and age level Tier 3 can add rec program players names if the AP list is small. Each year’s rep registrations are different.
      • Overall, all rep tryout attendees get first added to the AP lists

*** Note ***

  • Due to the schedule and conflicts that occur yearly, all players/goalies responsibility to the WKMHA Rep program is to their initial team. 
  • All WKMHA Coaches agree to an agreement to be flexible and must ask permission to AP a player for a game from Coach to Coach and communicate with the Head Development Coach to resolve any schedule conflicts that can occur between any  teams.
  • No Player/Parent in the WKMHA Rep Program can choose what they are going to do. All coaches must agree and be in communication with the Head Development Coach. The coaches and the Head Development Coach will know every AP plan before any player/parent is communicated too.
    • This generates an understanding, objective and appropriate plan for each team and the players development
