What If I Can't Attend or Miss Tryouts?

Should we still register?
YES - Players who are not able to attend tryouts for any reason should still register for tryouts using the online registration process. Only players who are registered will be considered for a roster spot.

Can you hold a spot for my player?
NO - We do not hold spots on teams for players who are unable to attend tryouts. Arrangements may be made in advance, pending coach availability, for coaches to evaluate a player prior to tryouts if you are not able to attend any of the tryout sessions so that the coach may take that player into consideration. But no decision will be made on any player not in attendance until the completion of tryouts.

What if we can't get on the ice before or during tryouts?
If you are unable to get on the ice prior to tryouts or make tryouts, your player registration entitles the player to three skates with the team (given there is still space at the conclusion of tryouts) to be considered. Once the player has completed a minimum of one skate or a maximum of three skates, the coach may offer the player a spot on the team, at which time the standard financial deposit is due.

What if we can only attend one skate, or will miss one or more of the tryout sessions?
One is better than none! All players are encouraged to attend as many tryout sessions as they can. Players should make coaches aware if they will not be present at any future tryout. If the coach has made a decision on the player at that time they may choose to offer the player a spot, or defer to the completion of tryouts. If the player is offered a spot, a standard financial deposit and signed contract is required at the time of acceptance.
