SOME MORE DETAILS
2023-24 TEAM FORMATION
For the upcoming season, Calgary AA will be forming teams to meet the AA program goals and deliver a rich experience for our athletes. Team sizes are pending approval of Ringette Calgary but are also subject to change based on the number of registrants and tryouts:
SCHEDULING OF TRYOUT SESSIONS (ICE TIMES)
After tryout registrations are closed and just prior to the start of tryout sessions, ice times will be emailed to you by the Head Coaches from your division. Please refer to our 2023 Tryout Schedule (Revised Aug 21) for dates, times, and locations. NOTE: The schedule is subject to change, so please check back regularly.
During tryout sessions, players will participate in drills and scrimmages, and are given equal opportunity to demonstrate their skills in skating, ring control, ringette sense, knowledge of the game, competitive drive, and sportsmanship. All players will perform the same drills.
Following the initial round of ice times, prospective AA athletes will be selected to move forward to the next tryout round and their names will be posted on our website. Refer to the tryout schedule above for the number of ice times.
Final team selection will occur by draft and the team rosters will be posted on our website.
If a player misses tryouts because of illness, injury, or family emergency, but still wishes to be eligible for selection, please review and complete the Medical Exemption from Tryouts - Policy and Form prior to the start of tryout sessions.
There will be some opportunity to ask questions of Division Coordinators and Calgary AA Ringette personnel during tryouts. Division Coordinators will be available at the arenas. We respectfully request that questions be directed to the Division Coordinators and not the Coaches or Evaluators during this process.
Calgary AA Ringette will host a parent meeting on August 24, 2023 at 6:30 pm for U14 and at 7:45 pm for U16/U19 (to be confirmed closer to the date).
Enjoy the rest of summer and we look forward to seeing you at tryouts!
