Tryout Registration Information August 2021 - UPDATE #6
Tryout registration is now CLOSED.
Please read this carefully before you register (UPDATED Sept 5 at 10:04 pm)
...Registration will be open until TUESDAY August 31 at 11:30pm
1. Background Information
The "Tryout" Process will look very different from past years, and not just because we are doing it in September. Hockey Canada, OHF, and OMHA are trying to create a process for tryouts that is less stressful (especially for younger players), and allow for more opportunity for players to show what they can do.
There will be 2 phases - the Prep Phase, and the actual Tryout Skates. During the Prep Phase, there will be 2 skates (U12 and above) and 4 skates (U11 and below). For the Prep Phase skates there is no evaluation of players, and no cuts are made. The Prep Phase skates are optional, meaning, players are not required to attend these skates. Also, due to Covid-19 rules and restrictions, and ice availability, numbers for the prep skates may have to be limited. We will make every effort to accomodate all interested players.
The Tryout Skates will be 2 or 3 skates guaranteed (depending on the age group), and then players may be offered a place on the team, a waiver, or be released. All registered players will be accomodated for the actual Tryout Skates.
The on-ice process will begin on Tuesday September 7. Schedules will be published some time after registration opens (as soon as it is possible...). This will allow us to optimize ice time, and have manageable numbers on the ice. The costs for the various age groups and type of skate are as follows:
U9, U10 and U11 - 4 skates at $120
U12, U13, U14, U15, U16 and U18 - 2 skates at $60
U9, U10, U11 - 3 skates guaranteed plus a QRD Tryout Jersey for $150
U12, U13, U14, U15, U16 and U18 - 2 skates guaranteed plus a QRD Tryout Jersey for $125
2. Registration Process
Registration for tryouts will be completed on-line on the QRD Website. There will be separate registration forms for each age group, as well as for each Phase of the process (Prep Skates and Tryout Skates). To attend the Prep Skates AND the Tryout Skates athletes will fill out BOTH forms. You will be required to e-transfer your payment to QRMHA in order to complete the registration process. It is a separate transaction from your bank's on-line banking app. Send e-transfers to [email protected]. Also, please indicate your child's name in the Message box. One e-transfer transaction is perfectly fine if you are attending the Prep AND Tryout Skates.
3. Permission to Skate Forms
Also, in order to attend tryouts, prospective players must have a permission to skate form (PTS), from their home centre. The PTS form verifies that the player is in good standing with their home centre, is a resident in their home centre, and is therefore eligible to attend tryouts with Quinte AAA. Since many PTS forms may be issued in electronic or digital form, players will be able to upload the PTS form during the on-line registration process, however this process is completely optional. Home centres may not issue the PTS forms until a few days before tryouts. You do not need it to register for tryouts, so just bring it to the first skate.
If you do not have the permission to skate form, you will not be eligible to attend the tryout. Please do not try to get around this step. If you are not sure what this means, please contact your home centre.
If you have questions please send an email to [email protected]
Thank you for your patience.
