Re: U14 2023-24

Help
with tryouts happening after nationals, when are U14 boys teams put together and when should i reach out to coaches/programs?
Official tryouts are in April. Actual tryouts go on all year and you should be reaching out and trying to get your kid on the ice at practice.

Re: U14 2023-24

It is not too late. Now is perfect time to reach out. Spread wide net. Look at teams around your current team in MHR to get a rough idea and go from there. Use any contacts you have

Re: U14 2023-24

Reach out in a hurry. Be realistic and be prepared. If he is a F, be ready to discuss stats, strengths and status on current team. Lots of dusters can forecheck/backcheck and look pretty skating but do they consistantly find the net? If D, being quick, strong on skates and skilled offensively will start the conversation. Everyone wants a D who can tally A's and G's but they are rarer than a midnight sun.

Better start now. Many coaches have targeted the kids they want and have agreements in place. If no one has contacted you yet get to work now. Many elite teams doing full season next year.
