Tryouts (Ayr Rockets Girls Hockey)


There is a $40.00 fee for tryouts, payable at the first session.  This covers a minimum of 2 sessions. 

Please Note: A Permission to Skate form is required for non-Rockets players, where applicable.



All players will be given equal consideration during the tryout process. 

All players will have to opportunity to participate in 2 ice times during the try-out process.   The first round of releases will be made after the 2nd home ice time.

All players are evaluated by a team of independent, third party evaluators and by the head coach of the team.
During the tryouts, players are evaluated on the following: 

1.       hockey skills and knowledge 

2.       work ethic

3.       attitude and behaviour (on and off the ice)

4.       ability to follow instructions

The head coach and the third party evaluators perform individual player assessments during each ice time. Results of these evaluations will not be discussed with anyone outside of the evaluation team. No releases will be made until the completion of the 2nd home ice time. At this time, a roster of those chosen to continue will be posted on the Ayr Rockets website under the team tab. Releases will be made following each subsequent try-out until the final roster is completed. 

Players should be reminded that evaluations begin the moment the process begins. The girls will be observed on their behaviour, both on and off the ice. All of our coaches ask each player to give her full effort on the ice and listen when instructions are given. If a player is not sure of any instruction, please ask any of the instructors on the ice. Lastly, HAVE FUN!!! 

We wish all players GOOD LUCK and look forward to seeing all players show their skills and give it their best effort. 

If you have any questions regarding the try-out process, please feel free to contact our Director – Coaches and Player Development: Colleen Graham at [email protected] or our Director – Abuse and Harassment: [email protected]
