Registration is now open for 2023/2024 Select Tryouts
Select Tryout dates and registration is now available for our (Roster) Select division. Select is a non-body-checking travel division that runs in addition to house/local league teams. Tryouts begin Sept 12, 2023. Cost is $60 for 4 tryout ice sessions. 

What is (Roster) Select?

Roster Select is a travel hockey that is a non-body-checking or "non-contact" division that runs in tandem with house league or local league game play; which means selected players play for both their house league team and their select level team. Game play comparable to MD/AE (and can play exhibition games in those categories) but it has a smaller, more dedicated travel loop. Select players also have access to higher-level development clinics.

Our travel area includes Niagara area teams such as Niagara Falls, Welland, Pelham, Jordan, and also can include Hamilton, Burlington, Brantford, and Kitchener (depending on their availability). 

U9, U13, and U15 players: The cost for tryouts is $60 for the 4 ice sessions, and must be paid in full prior to the first ice session.

Warmup Session 1 - Tuesday September 12, Merritton Arena
Warmup Session 2 - Friday September 15, Merritton Arena
Evaluation Session 1 - Monday September 18, Merritton Arena
Evaluation Session 2 - Tuesday September 19, Merritton Arena

All 3 divisions will have the same ice time across the 3 nights.

U9 @ 6pm
U12/U13 @ 7pm
U14/U15 @ 8pm

U18 players: Any U18s interested in forming a select tournament team, please register (it's FREE) so we know if we have the numbers.

U11 players: We did not have enough interest to run tryouts early, so we will review in October and see if there is enough demand.
