Q: Which Age Groups and Divisions are having a Pre-Tryout Goalie Evaluation?
A:
There will be a Pre-Tryout Goalie Evaluation for all Novice, Minor Atom, Atom, Minor Peewee, Peewee, Minor Bantam, and Bantam teams, except for AAA.

 


Q: What happens if I am not able to attend the Pre-Tryout Goalie Evaluation?
A:
It is strongly recommended that you try and avoid this scenario. The Pre-Tryout Goalie Evaluations are being conducted by professional, independent Goalie Instructors. These instructors will be evaluating each goalie to provide the coaches with a detailed and in-depth review of each goalie. If you miss the Pre-Tryout Goalie Evaluation you will still be allowed to try out.

 


Q: I played for the team last year. Do I still have to attend the Pre-Tryout Goalie Evaluation?
A:
Yes, it is recommended that all goalies trying out for Novice to Bantam, AE to AA, attend the Pre-Tryout Goalie Evaluation.

 


Before the Tryouts Begin

Q: How do I register for a Tryout?
A:
Registration is completed online at https://tryouts.oakvillerangers.ca. You will first need to create an account and login. Once in, on the left hand side, click on Apply for 2018-2019 Tryouts and fill out the form.

 


Q: How much does it cost to try out for a team?
A:
The Tryout Registration Fee is $50 per Division. There is no additional charge when trying out for a Blue team after being released from a Red team.

 


Q: What payment methods are accepted?
A:
Payment is collected via PayPal. You do not have to create an account with PayPal to check out – it does provide you an option to check out as a guest as well. PayPal accepts payment using: American Express, Discover Card, MasterCard, Visa, and Visa Debit.

 


Q: Do I have to register and pay separately for each Division I try out for?
A:
Yes, but that does not apply to Red and Blue teams. The Tryout Registration Fee is $50/Division – Red and Blue teams are part of the same Division. For example, if you try out for both AA and A you will pay a Tryout Registration Fee twice – once for A and once for AA. But if you try out for AA Red and AA Blue you will only pay the Tryout Registration Fee once – both teams are in the same Division.

 


Q: Do I have to register online? Can I register at the arena prior to the Tryout or at the office instead?
A:
Registration is only accepted online. This is done because the online tool is more than just registration – it provides you with additional information pertaining to the Tryouts, the status of your Tryout, and it provides the coaches with a number of tools to help them manage the Tryouts.

 


Q: Can I try out for a Blue team without trying out for the Red team first?
A:
For Minor Atom to Peewee you must try out for the Red team first, but this does not apply to Minor Bantam and above.

 


Q: Am I required to attend a Body Contact Clinic prior to attending the Tryout?
A:
All players entering Minor Bantam (born in 2005) and all players in Bantam and above that played House League last season are required to attend a Body Contact Clinic prior to attending Tryouts. You will not be allowed to try out if you fail to do so. This does not apply to goalies.

 


Q: Is there any cost for the Body Contact Clinic?
A:
No, the Body Contact Clinics are free of charge.

 


Q: Will I require any paperwork, such as a Release or a Permission To Skate, before I can try out?
A:
If you are trying out for a team anywhere other than the city where you live, it is quite likely that you will require a PTS (Permission To Skate) or AAA Waiver before you can try out. Click here for more information.

 


Durning and After the Tryouts

Q: What is a “Split Session” Tryout?
A:
Certain Teams are known to have a very high turn-out for Tryouts. More that can be accommodated on the ice at one time. In these scenarios we must split up the players in to multiple session for all players to receive a fair evaluation. A “Split Session” Tryout is a single tryout split in to two individual sessions. You are not required to attend both sessions. You will be emailed prior to the Tryout, advising you which of the sessions you are set to attend.

 


Q: How do I know which session of a Split Session I should attend?
A:
Prior to the tryout the Coach will advise you of which session you are to attend, via email. If you must attend a particular session due to a schedule conflict you will need to contact the Coach directly. The list of Coaches and their contact information can be found here.

 


Q: How and when will I be informed if I have been released from a Tryout or if I am invited to return for the next session?
A:
The coach will advise you if you have been released from the team. The expectation is that you will attend all of the Tryout Sessions unless otherwise advised. Meaning, no news is good news. If you do not hear otherwise from the coach, attend the next Session.

 


Q: If I am released from a Red team, do I have to register and pay again to try out for the Blue Team?
A:
No. When a player is released from a Red team they are automatically enrolled and registered for the Blue Tryouts. There is no additional cost to try out for a Blue team after being released from a Red team. The Tryout Registration Fee covers both the Red and Blue team in the same Division.

 


Q: If I am released from a team, do I have to register and pay again to try out for the next level down?
A:
Yes, you will need to register again for the next Division. That does not apply to Red and Blue teams, however – Red and Blue teams are part of the same Division. For example, if you try out for both AA and A you will register twice – once for A and once for AA. But if you try out for AA Red and AA Blue you will only register once as both teams are in the same Division.

 


Q: I am not going to be able to attend the Tryout – who should I notify?
A:
You will need to notify the Coach. The list of Coaches and their contact information can be found here.

 


Q: How and when will I be informed if I have been selected for the team?
A:
You will be notified by the coach at the end of the last Session.
