Welcome to the home of Hockey Nova Scotia!

Hockey Nova Scotia’s High Performance Program specifies two situations in which a player can apply for special consideration for participation in the next step of the process. These situations are: 

1) Injury / Illness - a player is physically unable to participate in a particular step in the program due to either an injury or illness. Players are deemed to have qualified for this criteria when they provide a written medical excuse signed by a doctor; or 

2) Compassion - this includes any and all special situations that may arise where compassion is necessary. The responsibility of determining whether or not a player qualifies for consideration through compassion rests with Hockey Nova Scotia. 



When a player is unable to attend a High Performance Program camp or event, that player is able to apply for an exemption to possibly move onto the next stage of the High Performance Process. While a player is able to apply for this exemption, they are not guaranteed to advance to the next stage of the process, it simply means that they will be considered.

At the end of each camp or event, players are ranked by position to determine their status in the High Performance Program. A player who has applied for Special Consideration will have their hockey ability evaluated and taken into consideration by the coaches and staff to determine if that player would rank among the top players at their position, had they been in attendance at a particular event.
