Tryout and Team Information
In a few days, summer will be over and hockey season will be upon us. Please read the rest of this article as it will provide you with our tryout process, team costs and tournament information for this year.   Have a safe weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday Night.

Welcome to the Oakridge Minor Peewee competitive tryouts for the 2014- 2015 season.

Our team will consist of 15 skaters and 2 goaltenders. Players will be evaluated on their hockey skills & skating, game performance, teamwork and motivation.

We are expecting approximately 40 players to attend tryouts this year.  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.
