We are well into phase one of the development
for the season and cannot express how impressed I am with everyone’s improvement.
Our first look at the game portion went
well and was grasped quickly for the most part. With the middle for the month
already upon us we will be starting the game play portion of our evaluation. We
will be selecting the team as well as notifying players that we would like to
have on our AP list on the website after the October 20th skate.
If your player is selected there will be a tryout fee, MD bump up fee (all to the organization) as well as team fees to cover tournaments, practice ice once a week etc. Estimated additional cost will be between $500 - $600. We will be looking to offset this cost with fundraisers and sponsors (parents will be required to assist in searching for sponsors). The first tournament is in Burlington on Nov 17 – 18. The hotel is holding a block of rooms that will need to be finalized and paid for by Oct 30th.
I would like to thank everyone for there interest in the MD program as well Thank those who have been involved in the Development Phase. Without your time, effort and compassion, this program would not be the success it has.
