Boys Tryout Information

Bantam/Pee-Wee Tryout Info

IMPORTANT NOTE: THERE IS A NEW TRYOUT PROCEDURE FOR PEEWEES AND BANTAMS.  IN ORDER TO COMPETE FOR THE AA OR A LEVEL TEAMS YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THE AA TRYOUT.  PLAYERS WHO WISH TO OPT OUT OF THE AA/A TRYOUT SHOULD REGISTER FOR THE B1 LEVEL TRYOUT OPTION.

THE CHANGES WERE MADE BASED ON FEEDBACK FROM THE MEMBERSHIP.

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION DESCRIBES THE NEW TRYOUT PROCESS.

  • Players are segregated in to 4 groups.  Each group will participate in two 75- minute sessions. We attempt to create 4 balanced teams for the initial tryout sessions. (Groups will alternate pairings for each session)

  • First cut’s will be made after the second session. Cut players will report to the B1 tryouts.

  • Remaining players will participate in an inter-squad scrimmage on the third day of the AA tryout.

  • Second cut’s will be made after the third session. Cut players will report to the B1 tryouts.

  • Remaining players will report to the Lumberyard for 3 on 3 and small area drills

  • Third cut’s will be made after the fourth session, cut players will be placed on A level team.

  • The fifth day of tryouts will be an outside scrimmage.  Final rosters for the AA team will be determined after the outside scrimmage. All players who do not make the AA team will be placed on the A team.

The number of players at each stage of the evaluation process will be determined by the players collective scores and feedback from the evaluators.  Roster sizes will be determined by registration numbers at each level and the outcome of the evaluation process.

PLEASE CHECK THIS AGAIN BEFORE TRYOUTS!  AS YOUR SON MAY END UP MOVED TO A DIFFERENT GROUP AS NUMBERS ARE BALANCED.  SORRY NO REQUEST FOR CHANGES WILL BE MADE!

Goalie Tryout Ice is 9/18 and 9/20 and noted below.  From there the goalies will then be assigned into regular tryout level pools.  IT IS CRITICAL THAT GOALIES DO NOT MISS GOALIE TRYOUTS! 

We wish all the players the best for the tryout process! It is our goal to provide the best opportunity for the players to show case their talents as a hockey player and ensure they are placed at the correct level for the upcoming season and for their long-term development.
