Tryouts will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 5, at 8:30 p.m. and will run through Saturday, Sept. 8. Skaters will mimic the Prospects Camp schedule with one hour of ice daily and two skates on Saturday.

Cost of tryouts is $200 before July 15. All player dues will be collected prior to anyone hitting the ice with no exceptions.

After July 15, the tryouts fee increases to $250.
