Reminder - Registration for Select Tryouts
Registration is still open for tryouts for the Select program. The tryout fee is $40. Players need to pre-register for the tryout by Friday September 22, no walk ups please. 

For the coming season, the AMHL plans to run Select teams in the following age groups:
u11, u13, u14, u16, u18 

Note that with the new u15 BB Bombers team being run this season, the current plan is to not run a u15 Select team.

Players born in 2009 are encouraged to try out for the u16 Select Team. 

Also, given the amount of interest, the AMHL is excited to announce a u14 Select team for this coming season! 

Registration is available through the same link that was used when registering for house league. 

When going through the registration process you will skip the first step, then the “Ancaster Avalanche Select Tryout Fee” will appear on the next step. 

The tryout times for the divisions are as follows (please check the AMHL Calendar prior to the tryouts for any changes in times). Players who register for the tryouts will be expected to attend both sessions for their age group.

For those not familiar with the Select program it’s an opportunity for players in house league to play at a more competitive level without the bigger commitment of a rep program. 

Here are some quick details:
● The team will have one or two hours of ice time per week that is used for practices or exhibition games. 
● Select teams can only play a maximum of 3 exhibition games per month.
● Select teams can play up to three tournaments per year. 
● The Select program is an addition to house league, not a replacement, so players who make the Select team continue to play with their house league team. 
● Select team schedules will not conflict with house league schedules.
● There is an additional fee for those who make the team, typically in the range of $500 to $700 per player.
