Evaluation Process

It is mandatory that every player must check in at the tryout desk in the lobby prior to each ice time.  Everyone will have the opportunity to attend 2 ice times. 
Evaluations are done by impartial evaluators who have no affiliation to anyone trying out for the team. 
First releases happen after the 2
nd tryout.

Two exhibition games will be played versus other associations, with possible releases happening after each one.

Trying Out in Another Association 

All players must tryout for their home association if the level of play sought is offered. In addition to trying out in their home association a player may choose to also tryout in one additional association. If a level of play is not offered at a home association a player may choose to tryout at a maximum of two different associations. In the case of any schedule conflicts during tryouts, a player must give priority to their home association’s tryouts in preference to any others. Each association has its own tryout fees and can include an additional cost of tryout jerseys.


Out of association players

Out of Association players must place in the top 80% of the team to be selected. A maximum of 3 Out of Association skaters (not goalies) will be considered for the final rosters.


How to prepare for Tryouts 

CORA put together a great video for players and goalies on how to get ready for tryouts. WORA takes a very similar approach during tryouts, so we suggest that all players watch the video.

The video link can be found here for players and here for goalies.
