Metro East Inferno Female Hockey Association is pleased to offer Preseason Development Sessions for divisions U9 – U18 during the month of September.  These sessions will provide our players with the opportunity to get on the ice prior to the start of the regular season. Please note: All Preseason Development Sessions are OPTIONAL.


Options for Preseason Development Sessions and U13/U15 Evaluations:

Introducing a new initiative to provide alternatives for those who wish greater flexibility, and control of their hockey preseason. We hope these changes will provide a positive environment for players at both preseason development sessions and evaluations, as well as provide families with options during the busy fall season.  

  • Choose your Preseason Development Sessions
  • Players at U13 may now choose to join Evaluations at the AAA or AA/A level. 
  • Players at U15 may now choose to join Evaluations at the AAA or AA level. 

Check out more details and the potential scheduling template below to see what works best for your player! 

Players released from any evaluation process are intended to join the preseason development sessions block in progress
  • No additional cost to join these sessions
  • Less downtime before the next evaluation process begins 
NOTE: This will be subject to numbers and safety concerns. Please be patient as this is all new.  Announced by email July 2023, this process will NOT be possible due to numbers participating in the evaluation process.
Yours in hockey,
Metro East Inferno FHA Executive.
