Our AA Rep tryouts begin this week! I know that this can be a very stressful time of year for players, their families and the coaches. Northumberland is a AA centre and our goal is to ice the most competitive team at that level, followed by the AE team which are both supported by a strong foundation in out Select and House League programs.
That being said, each team has a limited number of spots, and that is where the tryout process begins. Remember that coaches are trying to assemble a team of the strongest, most skilled, and coachable kids.
Be sure that your players takes the tryout as an opportunity to showcase themselves! Give 110% every shift, during each drill and lap around the ice. Be respectful, show up on time and be a team player.
Best of luck to everyone!
A few reminders:
*Tonight is the deadline to purchase your AA Passport online for the discounted rate.
*You must ensure that your player is also registered before attending tryouts
*All players wanting to play rep hockey, who played AA or AE last season, MUST attend AA tryouts.
*Players are not permitted to request releases from coaches to circumvent the AA tryout
*Any Northumberland House League player that would like to play rep this year, can either attend AA tryouts OR they can go straight to AE tryouts (if numbers support a team)
*All player releases will be made online. Your unique and confidential ID number can be found at the bottom of your Tryout Passport Email (submission ID)
