TRYOUT POLICY for 2017-2018

Any player wanting to try out for a rep team must:
1. Pay a fee of $40 for a tryout at each division (Novice, Atom, Peewee, Bantam, or Midget boys or girls).
2. Be registered with SMMHA for the current year and have the tryout fee paid in full before stepping on the
ice.
3. Attend at least one of the first two tryouts for the rep team and be released before trying out for the additional
entry (AE) team at his/her age level.

NOTE: Although this policy outlines the procedure for releasing players, the number of players attending tryouts may need to be changed accordingly due to safety concerns. Players trying out will be informed in advance if it will be necessary to adjust the policy for this reason.

BB Tryouts:
All BB tryouts will consist of 4 home ice times. Any exhibition games must be completed before the final home ice time. After the first tryout, the coach will have a parent/player meeting to discuss his/her objectives for the year and outline his/her coaching philosophy. A letter (see Exemptions below - line 2 ) must be submitted for possible release before the second tryout or the player is committed to the full 4 tryouts. After the second tryout, players can be released and cuts may happen after each subsequent try out until the fourth tryout when the team will be finalized.

AE Tryouts:
AE tryouts will consist of 3 home ice times. Any exhibition games must be completed before the final home ice time. After the first tryout, the coach will have a parent/player meeting to discuss his/her objectives for the year and outline his/her coaching philosophy. The coach may start to release after the first tryout. The team will be finalized by the end of the third tryout.

Higher Division:
Any player wishing to try out at a higher age division must submit a letter of request, signed by a parent/guardian, to the Coaches Committee at least 3 days prior to the beginning of tryouts . The player must still attend tryouts at his/her age division and, if given permission, tryouts for the higher age division. The Committee will assign three people to assess this player throughout tryouts. The player must be in the top 5 of the rep (BB) talent pool to be allowed to make the higher division team. If the decision deems that the player is not in the top 5, then he/she shall return to his/her own age division.

Girls Division:
Girls may try out for the same-age boys BB team. If the female player makes the BB team, she may accept and play on that team. However, if the decision deems the female player does not make the BB team, then she shall return to the girls divisions, with the option to AP to a boys team (BB, AE, or LL), if she is asked by the coach, respecting all OMHA/OWHA regulations.

Midget Division:
1. 15-year old players are required to try out for the Minor Midget team. These players are not eligible to try out for the BB (major rep) team.

2. 16 and 17-year old players are required to try out for the BB (major rep) team. These players are not eligible to try out for the Minor Midget team.

EXCEPTIONS:

1. If a player has a medical issue and cannot make the tryouts, then he/she must contact the Coaches Committee immediately. A meeting between the coach, the Coaches Committee, and the previous year’s coach will take place to determine if a spot on the BB or AE team will be saved for the player.

2. Any player wishing to be released from a BB or AE team when he/she cannot fulfill the team’s commitments must write a letter stating the reasons why he/she cannot fulfill those commitments. The letter must be signed by a parent/guardian and the player. The Coaches Committee will hold a meeting immediately to decide the outcome. If the request is not granted, then the player will return to the level which he/she is to play at or, if he/she chooses, then go directly to Local League.

3. The Coaches Committee has the right at its discretion to grant player movement or non-movement for the betterment of SMMHA and its players, respecting OMHA/OWHA regulations.
