Updated list and tryout details
Hello Aeros parents, below you will find an updated list for our tryouts starting on September 7th, 5:30pm, at Nichols arena on pad B. If anyone notices their child missing from the list below please contact Lee Ross-Hayton at [email protected]



As mentioned previously please have your child registered and dressed by "Aeros time", which is a minimum of 10 minutes before going on the ice. This will give me an opportunity to speak with the kids and let them know what to expect. All players will be given a minimum of two tryouts before I start making any releases. The final team will be posted on the website following our second exhibition game, which will be on September 14th. As posted on a previous news article, players will be measured on their speed, skating transition (backwards to forwards), giving/receiving passes, shooting, and hockey sense. Goalies will be measured on their balance, mobility, quickness, and positioning. I will also be observing all players for those intangibles like leadership, coachability, focus, hustle, and listening skills.

Below are a couple of good articles I read recently about how to prepare for the stresses of tryouts. Hopefully this will help minimize the stress level for everyone.

I would like to also take this opportunity to wish all the players good luck. Remember to work very hard and have lots of fun.
