Major Novice Tryouts
Welcome to the Oakridge Major Novice competitive tryouts for the 2014- 2015 season. Our team will consist of thirteen skaters and two goaltenders. Players will be evaluated on their hockey skills & skating, game performance, teamwork and motivation. We are expecting approximately 32 players for evaluation. All players will have a fair and equal opportunity to be a part of this team. Non-partisan volunteers will assist me with player evaluation. Please let me know ASAP if your child is trying out for a specific position (other than goalie).
