Tryouts

SCHEDULES FOR TRYOUTS AND EVALUATIONS!

Registrations for the upcoming Season and for Open Tryouts have closed. If you would like to participate in the 2018/2019 hockey season at Sno-King you can contact Andrew Birnbrich at andrew.birnbrich@snokinghockey.com.  

Scheduled dates and times for tryouts for Select teams as well as start dates for the beginning of practices and evaluations for Recreation teams are provided below. 

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 system of review and player placement of all players not on a Select team. They are utilized when Sno-King will have more than one team in a certain level of play. The evaluation process seeks to create teams that are equally balanced for competition during the season.

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 2018/2019 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;  14U A2;  14U A3;  12U A1; 12U A2;  12U A3 (two teams);  10U A (two teams); and 10U B (four teams).
