Due to the fact that CARHA Hockey's programs promote participation, fitness, and sportsmanship, points of excellence and past hockey experience are of minimal use in the criteria for selection to the Player Category. The most important points for consideration are the individual's commitment to the association's success and a true appreciation for the enjoyment of the game. Highlights of continuance in the dedication to the team, individual team players, and their community are critical consideration factors.
The player nominated must be a member in good standing with CARHA Hockey. The submission should clearly highlight the reasons why the Board of Management should consider the nomination, preferably in point form. Understandably, the nomination carries more weight when accompanied by additional support documents. Suggestions for support letters include those from other teams, community associations, teammates, and friends.
