Welcome to the AMHA Minor Pee Wee AA team tryouts. 

Thank you for taking the time to attend. Please see important information about these tryouts below.



The players will be assigned a tryout jersey colour and number at the registration desk. This jersey must be handed in to the coach following completion of each tryout.   Kindly note that full protective gear is mandatory, including neck and mouth guards – players without, or missing such equipment, will not be allowed on the ice.

The tryouts will be an anxious time for all of us while the players are evaluated.  It will be an extremely difficult task choosing 17 players (15 players, 2 goalies) for each team from a large group of hardworking athletes.  Player selection will be based on their individual abilities such as:

 

· Skating

· Puck handling

· Shooting

· Team play

· Hockey sense

· Attentiveness

· Attitude

· Desire

· Coachability

 

 

To ensure the selection process is fair, there will be a team of evaluators that include my assistant coach (John Fanuzzi) the Pee Wee A coach (Glenn Dool) and the Pee Wee AE coach (Chris MacEachern) assisting me in assessing the players. Please do not approach evaluators, all questions should be directed towards me. 

Releases after all of the tryouts will be via the website.  You will notice a number at the bottom of the passport when you paid for the passport.  This is your child’s number.  Please check the website 3 to 4 hours after the tryout to see if your child’s number appears in the list.  If the number is on the webpage for the Minor Pee Wee AA team he/she is invited back to the next tryout.  If their number does not appear they have been released and they are invited to tryout at the A level.  24 hours following the 3rd tryout the list of players selected for the team will be posted.  PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK THE WEBSITE CAREFULLY! 

It is important to know that playing rep hockey requires a big commitment both time-wise and financially.  This year we will be playing approximately 30 league games plus additional play-off, tournament and exhibition games.  The regular ice times have not yet been determined.  Each week there will be, on average, two practices and one home and one away game.   There will also be 2-4 tournaments (one/two out of town). Budget outlines have not been completed but we expect it will cost approximately ($2000-$2,500) per player for the season.  Parents may be called upon to obtain sponsorships, organize fundraising activities to help offset these costs, and to support the team administratively.  There will also be a mandatory team dress code for games. 

Note:

Once the team has been selected there will be a mandatory fitting for the team jerseys on May 2nd in the lobby of ACC 2 from 12-4.  If you are selected for the team please make sure you attend the fitting on that day.

New 2015: All tigerware fittings will be held on Saturday June 20th between the hours of 11:30 - 4 pm during a Tiger Fun Day.  Details will follow.

Should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me away from the arena.

It should be clearly understood that if your child should make this team, it will be the coachs final decision as to the positions they will be playing.
