KVHA PLAY UP REQUEST PROGRAM
We recognize that in rare and specific cases, it is appropriate and beneficial to a player’s development for them to play-up to the next age classification. A balance needs to be struck to avoid placing the desire of a player above the legitimate opportunity for that individual to be successful in an older age classification.
While KVHA does support Play-Up Requests, KVHA will not take an opportunity away from an age appropriate player to allow a younger player to take an available slot within a division. When spots are available, the player must demonstrate that their current abilities would undermine the balance of competitiveness within their current age appropriate division.
Any player wishing to play up must attend at least one draft/rate skate at their current division and for the division in which they are requesting to be moved. This is the only way to determine is a Play-Up request is appropriate. In all cases, player priority is based on their registration date. A player playing up will not supersede any other player who registered earlier in either division. A player will only be permitted to Play-Up one division.
Play-Up requests must be received prior to the house evaluations skates so that the player's skill level can be evaluated.
