Hi - Planning for the 2019/2020 hockey season is well underway. In this communication we are providing information regarding the schedules for tryouts for Select teams as well as start dates for the beginning of practices and evaluations for Recreation teams so that you can plan your schedules accordingly.  

The term “tryout” refers to a competitive process of selection for a particular Select team where the player roster is limited.  These teams are sometimes referred to as “Rep” teams and are designated as A1, A2 or A3 with the A1 team competing at the highest level of competition, A2 at the next and A3 the next.   

The term “evaluation” refers to a process of reviewing players skills and ensuring fair and balanced teams. They are utilized when Sno-King will have more than one team in a certain level of play. All players must attend the evaluation dates. 

Returning Sno-King Players have priority registration and will be able to register for the season beginning on July 1st at noon (this includes our graduating Hockey 2 players). During the registration process you will be given the option to sign up for Select Team Tryouts.  Please note that once a player registers to play for Sno-King in the 2019/2020 season, the registration fee will be non-refundable. 

Select Teams 

Players will be selected to play on these teams through a tryout process. Please note that the actual number of teams may vary depending on the results of the registration process.  For the 2019/2020 season we will have the following Select teams. Unless otherwise noted, there is one team for each level listed. 

18U A1; 16U A1; 16U A2; 16 U A3; 14U A2; 14U A3;  12U A1; 12U A2;  12U A3 (two teams); and 10U A (four teams).
