Skaters will check in at the table in the lobby of the Graf Rink and will be assigned a pinnie with a number on it. The Jr. Maples work with outside evaluators to ensure a fair and impartial process. Coaches will be on the ice to assist with player management and drill coordination.
The first night of tryouts will be focused on skills. Each group of skaters will work through a series of drills over the 50 minute time block.
Skaters should remember to stay in the right order in line, watch the coach before the drill begins, and execute to the best of their ability.
The second night of tryouts will be focused on game play. Skaters will, again, wear pinnies and be broken into teams to play fast-paced scrimmages.
- If your player intends to be a full-time goalie for the season, they should dress for goalie both nights of the tryout.
- If your player intends to be a skater AND a goalie during the season, they should skate out on Night 1 and dress for goalie on Night 2.
After both tryout dates conclude, the scores for each player will be complied and the team selection process will begin. Roster announcements are made at the end of April.
