Representative Tryouts for the 2019-2020 Season
Submitted By Susan Burnett on Friday, October 26, 2018
In preparation for the 2019-2020 season Orillia Minor Hockey would like to advise parents and players that tryouts for the 2019-20 season will be held in August. 

This advance notice is being given to parents for the purpose of scheduling vacations.


Historically the tryouts were held in August.  Five years ago, the tryouts were moved to the Spring as the ice became available from the City.  The extra cost of obtaining ice in the Spring was voted on in favour of the ability for teams to be rostered in a more effective manner – allowing for bench staff to obtain certification earlier and complete the mandatory VSC material required as per Ontario Minor Hockey and Hockey Canada.  This extra time and cost  have not proven of value as many bench staff are still not receiving certification until August.

With the fluctuating registration numbers over the past several years and looking at cost saving measures to avoid increases in registration the removal of Spring ice will see a decrease in ice costs with little to no impact on the program.

The dates for tryouts will be August 17 to 30, 2019.  Each team’s tryouts  will be scheduled consecutively which will alleviate for the most part no more than a week of tryouts per team.  The schedule will be posted in January 2019.

The change of tryouts to August will be for a one-year trial and will be looked at again by the Board for the 2020-21 season.
