General try out details

The try out fee ($100) includes a guaranteed three skates (two skates for U14 and U18) and a try out jersey.  Any try out after this date is by invite only. It is also important to note that the three skates do not have to be in sequence.

QWMH is planning a second team at the U14 age group. There will be an additional fee for ice time only once determined how many players will be participating in these tryouts.

Fees must be paid in full before the start of tryouts and can be sent by etransfer to [email protected]  Please include the participants name in the notes and the team they are trying out for.

No new player may attend a try out after the first two scheduled ice times. 

Players must be residentially qualified or provide an approved Non Residential Player passport.  Passports are available from your home centre for players in U12(2012) and older and must be presented at the first tryout.  If you are unsure of your residential qualification please ask.

Players must be in good standing with their association and previous team to be eligible to participate in try outs.

Players interested in exercising the reverse NRP option to try out for a base category below A  must fulfill all try out commitments at their home centre.

Players that wish to try out in an older age group must follow the below as published in the QWMHA constitution.
