Please note that the tryouts this Spring are for those interested in playing on the Blues high school team and Bantam full travel and select teams.  For planning purposes, pre-registration at least a week in advance is greatly appreciated.

Travel hockey is a highly competitive, demanding activity. Players will be challenged, and supported, to constantly grow in all aspects of the game.  A high level of commitment, strong work ethic, resilient personal make-up, responsible sense of teamwork and loyalty to Ice Eagles hockey will be expected of all who choose to participate on these teams.

When tryouts are conducted, all skaters should be at the River’s Edge a half hour in advance to check-in and secure their tryout jersey.  All players should be fully dressed and ready to go at least five minutes before your tryout ice time.

All other travel team tryouts will take place in August 2017 (exact date TBD).
