Tryout Tips

I'm looking for tips on running a high school hockey tryout (14-18year olds). This is my third year but always looking to improve and figured I may get some decent responses here.

If you coach, what are one or two drills/things you do that really separates the talent? What is the first thing you look for?

Also, tips on keeping it efficient and valueable- expect to have around 50 kids and keep 15+2 for varsity and 18+2 for Junior varsity.

Players, what would you want to do if you could design a tryout? What do you think best gives you the opportunity to show off for a coach?

Parents, what do you remember from your kids' tryouts that gave you a sense that the program knew what they were doing and conducted a fair and thorough tryout process?
