5:20pm Update re: Tonight's 8:00p-9:30p U13 AAA Tryouts



UPDATE for U13 AAA at 5:20pm



After much thought and discussion, we have decided to reassign tonight's U13 AAA Tryout ice from Session #2 - SCRIMMAGE to Session #1 - TACTICS

The originally posted groups -- Group 1 and Group 2 -- will each take 40 minutes of tonight's scheduled time as follows.

Group 1 - 8:00p-8:40 @ Sackville Sports Stadium

Group 2 - 8:50p-9:30p @ Sackville Sports Stadium  


Again - thank you to families and players for the extreme flexibility in this very challenging weekend. It is our view that this last-minute change is what is best for the U13 AAA Tryout Process. 

There will be an ice time added on the evening of Sept 20th shortly, to ensure we still get all of the scrimmages accounted for, and that the tryout process aligns with the Competitive Tryout Document.


UPDATE for U13 AAA at 1:00pm


Unfortunately, the Sackville Arena is not ready for today.

  • U13 AAA Goalie Session this afternoon has been MOVED
    • Sun Sept 17, 5:15p-6:15p @ HRM 4-Pad
  • U13 AAA Session #1 - Tactics this afternoon has been CANCELLED.
    • The Tryout Committee is working on whether or not it will be simply rescheduled or permanently cancelled.
  • U13 AAA Session # 2 - Scrimmage is UNCHANGED and will be tonight at Sackville Sports Stadium from 8:00p-9:30p

If the U13 AAA Tactics is permanently cancelled, the weighting as per the Competitive Tryout Document would have to be modified. More to come.

We will update all of this on the U13 Tryouts & Evals Page ASAP. 


Attn: U13 AAA Tryout Families

The Sackville Arena has an issue with the ice quality this morning following yesterday's power outages. Sackville Arena staff are working hard to get the ice ready, and will be providing SMHA with an update by 1:30p relating to our 3:00p-6:00p ice times for U13 AAA Tryouts.

We recognize that this is extremely short notice, and thank everyone for their patience and flexibility through this entire weekend.  

Alternative last-minute options are being explored at this time should the Sackville Arena ice not be usable. We will be posting again by 1:30pm at the latest with more information.
