Welcome to the 2015-16 Tryouts
Submitted By Sheri Hudson on Friday, May 1, 2015
Thank you for attending the Aurora Tigers MINOR ATOM A tryouts.
My name is David Kiratzis I will be the head coach for the upcoming season.  

Please refer to the website for tryout dates and times.  

This year there will be a new tryout process. All parents will refer to this website to find results from each tryout. After the first and second tryout the results will be posted within an hour or so after the tryout is completed. Parents will look for there players ID number on the list. If it is there then they are invited to the following tryout. Please note that after the third tryout the selection process will be most difficult. Therefore the results of the selected players for the team will be posted the following day.


My philosophy, when coaching young hockey players, is to establish  a positive environment encouraging the development of not only their hockey skills, but also important values such as teamwork, commitment, sportsmanship, dedication, respect, perseverance and fair play.  Practices will be structured focusing on skill development, teambuilding and FUN!  The coaching staff’s measure of success will be through the progression made by the kids from practice to practice and game to game and their development of the values noted above, not by wins and losses

Myself, Dennis Miller the Minor Atom A assistant coach and some other associates will be evaluating each tryout. 

During the season, players selected for this team will be skating 3-4 times per week, beginning the first week of September.  There may be weeks with more or less ice time depending upon our game schedule. 


All positions will be finalized by myself and coaching staff if selected for the team!


I am still finalizing a team budget that I will present at our first parent meeting.  Team fundraising initiatives and corporate sponsorships will be undertaken in order to reduce these costs.  My plan is to participate in  3 tournaments during the season. Plus an early bird tournament in September, details to be determined at a later date.


Please note that if selected to the team there will be a mandatory jersey fitting. The date is Saturday May 9th from 12pm-5pm in the lobby at ACC2.

Also there will be a AMHA tiger fun day at Machell park on June 20th from 11:30-4:00 pm. The kids will be fitted for all their off ice tigerware at this event.


Best wishes for a fun and fulfilling 2015/16 hockey season.   Contact me with any questions.
