2019-2020 Aurora Tigers Novice AA Tryouts
Submitted By Michael Marley on Monday, September 2, 2019
Dear Parents,

Hello, my name is Michael Marley and I am the head coach for the 2019-2020 Novice AA hockey team. I would like to welcome everyone to the tryouts, and thank you for taking the time to attend. I wish every skater the best of luck!

Tryout #1: Wednesday September 4, 2019 – ACC #2 – 6:000 pm to 7:15 pm
Tryout #2: Saturday September 7, 2019    – ACC #1 – 9:00 am to 10:30 am
Tryout #3: Sunday September 8, 2019      – ACC #1 – 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

1. On the day of the each tryout, AMHA representatives will be present to help with the tryout registration process. Registration will take place at ACC#2 prior to the tryout. The tryout cost is $15.00 per tryout payable at sign in. Please email me or the AMHA if you have any additional questions. ([email protected])

2. Please arrive at least 45 minutes before the tryout begins.

3. When you arrive at the lobby of ACC #2, please go to the AMHA table to sign-in and receive your child’s tryout jersey. THIS JERSEY MUST BE RETURNED AT THE END OF EACH TRYOUT! It does not go home.

4. Full protective gear is mandatory, including neck and mouth guards – players without, or missing such equipment, will NOT be allowed on the ice.

5. Players must attend the first tryout in order to be invited back to the second and third tryout.

6. There will be a team of independent evaluators who will be assisting me with assessing the players. The AMHA will also assign a team of independent evaluators.

7. During and after the tryout, please do NOT approach the evaluators, as they have a job to do. Communication of my decisions after each tryout will occur via the website and NOT in person at the arena. Your player’s passport submission ID number is your code that identifies you on the website (Look at NOVICE AA for the team and the tryout page).

• After the 1st tryout, results will be posted no later than 9:00 am the following day.
• After the 2nd tryout, results will be posted no later than 9:00 pm of the same day.
• After the 3rd tryout, results will be posted AFTER 9:00 pm the same day.

I am aware that some players (and/or their parents) may experience anxiety during this process. PLEASE kindly reinforce with your child that they perform at their best when feeling relaxed and confident. It is also important for parents to help manage their child’s expectations during this process. A roster position on this team should never be assumed. Let’s all make the tryout process an enjoyable one!

The following is a list of what I am looking for during the tryouts:
• Skating         · Coachability · Hockey sense

• Puck handling · Shooting     · Attentiveness

• Attitude        · Battling       · Team play

There will be a financial commitment from each family. The estimated financial commitment will be approximately $2,000 to $2,500.

• We will be looking for sponsors and fundraising to help reduce the cost per family.

• There will also be a time commitment required of each family. We will be on the ice 2 to 4 times per week with practices and games. It is expected that all players attend all practices and games.

• We will be attending approx. 3 tournaments (at least one being an away tournament). The number of tournaments we are able to attend is determined by Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development model.

• Our season extends all the way to March 31, 202. Please make your vacation plans accordingly.

I will be looking for the following parent positions: 2 assistant coaches, 1 practice coach, Team manager, Team trainer as well as other roles (fundraising, on-ice helpers during practices, etc.)

All decisions about player positions are at the discretion of the coach and will most likely change during the season based on the needs of the team.

If your child makes the team they MUST attend the Tigerware fitting date, which will take place the week of September 9-15, 2019.

If you have a question for me, then please email me. If you have a concern, then please respect the OMHA protocol of waiting 24 hours to contact the coach. Please contact me via email after this time. If I receive an email before this time, I will respond when the 24 hour wait period has expired.

, and I look forward to seeing you at the rink.
