Thank you for attending the Aurora Tigers Atom A tryouts. My name is David Kiratzis and i will be the Head Coach for the upcoming season. Dennis Miller will be my Assistant Coach.

Tryout dates are:
Saturday April 30th 12pm-1:30 pm ACC Lincoln(2)
Sunday May 1st 11am-12:30pm ACC Ford(1)
Tuesday May 3rd 6:15-7:45 ACC Lincoln(2)

All parents will refer to this website to find results from each tryout. After the first tryout the results will be posted by midnight that same day. After the second and third tryout the results will be posted the following day, after 4pm. Parents will look for their player's ID number on the list. If it is there, then they are invited to the following tryout. After the third tryout if your player's ID number is there they have been selected for the team.

My philosophy when coaching young hockey player's 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, team building and having FUN! The coaching staff's measure of success will be through the progression made by the kids in practices and games and their development of values noted above, not by wins and losses.

Players will be evaluated on all aspects of skill related to hockey:
  • Skating
  • Passing
  • Shooting
  • Team Play
  • Hard Work
  • Effort
  • Coachability
  • Attitude  

I, along with 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 to 4 tournaments during the season, plus an early bird tournament in September. Details to be determined at a later date.

Please note that if selected for the team there will be a mandatory jersey fitting on Tuesday May the 24th from 7:15-8:30. The location for this is LION'S SHARE MARKETING. 16610 Bayview Ave, Newmarket.

Best wishes for a fun and fulfilling 2016/17 hockey season. Contact me with any questions.

Dave Kiratzis
Head Coach
