Hot Topics Cont.
I am planning on changing tryouts a bit this year. Here’s how the U10 and
U12 tryouts will be run (U14 may follow this as well depending on numbers)
Tryouts Day 1
 2-3 independent evaluators will pick the top 20 skaters
    The “A” head coach, Girls Director (w/ exception of U12) will also grade
     BUT the independent evaluators top 20 will be what we work off of unless
     there are major discrepancies.
    A team “locks” will be identified on day 1. Must have consensus by tryout
    Top 2-3 goalies will be identified (numbers dependent)
Hot Topics Cont.
Tryouts Day 2
 Re-evaluate ALL players that are not locks for the A team.
 By the end of Day 2 the “A” Camp Team will be picked.
    Must be a minimum of 18 skaters but no more than 20 skaters.
    2-3 Goalies will be selected for the A Camp Team
Tryouts Day 3
 “A” Camp Team will scrimmage against another association
 “A” team will be picked after the scrimmage
 Players that don’t make the respective “A” teams will be moved to the
  “B” pool.
Hot Topics Cont.
“B” Pool Grading

This year after the “A” teams are picked we will have a “B” grading
session. The intent of this grading session will be to grade out the B
players to ensure we are creating 2 equally skilled teams as possible. As
always, this is dependent on the total number of kids we have in the
program. If there are only enough for 1 B team, this grading session will
not be needed.
Hot Topics Cont.
Team Format
This year I will be limiting the numbers for the “A” teams at each level.
Here’s the breakdown: (everything is dependent on total numbers)

 The “A” teams will be limited to 13 skaters and 1 or 2 goalies. Unless
  skaters 14 and 15 are true “A” players, this must be approved by the
  tryout committee.
 The plan at the “B” levels are to have leaner teams. Plan as of today is
  to have 2 “B” teams per level consisting of 11 skaters and a goalie for a
  total of 12 players. (everything is dependent on total numbers)
