7. All-Star Program

High Park's All Star program is for players who want to play in a more competitive environment. We have a long and storied past playing at the provincial level. Every year, the League sends all-star teams to the Ontario Ball Hockey Federation’s provincial tournaments, which are held over one weekend in July. We have also had teams compete nationally and internationally, and had representatives play at the Ontario Summer Games. Tryouts typically take place beginning in late April/early May, followed by team selection and dedicated all-star practices.

9. Equalization

Why rebalance the teams?

While every effort is made to ensure that the teams selected are of relatively equal strength, the League appreciates that this is a difficult process and all games will always have a team that wins and a team that does not win. The goal is to promote close competition, which is proven to encourage great effort and even better fun. Ideally, we would like all games in every division to be close. We would like every team to have a realistic chance of beating the other teams in its division.

When does equalization take place?

As noted above, equalization typically takes place after the second weekend of the season (i.e., after each team in the division in question has played 4 games).

What are we doing to minimize equalization?

We continue to take steps to try to minimize equalization.Convenors put together the teams before the start of the season based on information of thier skills of so that we have a sense of what we’re dealing with.

The league appreciates that moving children between teams can be uncomfortable and we will rely on parents, care givers and coaches to help ensure this process highlights the value of creating a competitive league.

By registering with the High Park Ball Hockey League all players are agreeing 100% to the team balancing process.
