The preceding chart should be considered a guideline to help you place your player in the correct program.  It is the goal of Perinton Youth Hockey to place players on teams of similar skill levels.  Optimum player development occurs when similar players are practicing and playing together.

Each individual PYH program places players according to their skill level.  In the travel program teams are categorized as Tier I or AAA, Tier II or AA and Tier III or A.  These teams represent a progression of skills from highest to lowest respectively.

In the House program, teams are categorized as Red, White or Blue.  Players are evaluated through a series of drills and then selected by coaches of the appropriate team.  The Red teams generally represent the players with the best evaluations.
