Bantam AA

Im trying out this year for my hometown team and I have never tried out yet any advice for the try-out process and the expectation of me as a player if I make it.

Everyone who tries hard/has good character makes it.


Agree with everything your coach says in your 1on1 after practices and always smile.


seriously, a positive attitude goes a long way in rep minor hockey, especially with so many douchey kids running around.

Only accept criticism from those who know what they're talking about. Make sure the coaches are competent.

Don't mess around in tryouts. Go as hard as you can. Try to show skill without being too flashy.

Never give up on the puck in the corner, battle for the puck as if it's your life and that you don't want to lose it. Go hard on backcheck, always move your feet. Don't be afraid to ask question if you haven't understood at 100% the drill. Keep it simple, it's not time to try things that your not shure to handle completely. And like the others had said take all the advice that the coach tell you..

...make it clear to them that they are the ones trying out to coach you?

Make sure that they teach skills and not tactics. And make sure they dont play favorites.

This is important, but a kid trying out for a Bantam team would have no control over this. Hopefully his hockey association is a good one and the kids can trust that they are trying out for a good coach with competence and integrity.

I don't know how things work in BC, but I would call the coach introduce yourself and try to get a feel what kind of coach he is and what he's looking for.

Team practices and to teach tactics, plays, strategies etc especially at Bantam or older.
To work on skills get some additional sessions with professional skills/skating instructors. Best would be private or semi private, but that can become costly.

Good luck.

My advice would be to do whatever you can to get noticed. Once you're on the team you can play whatever type of game you want.

I just made my bantam AA team for the first time since I started when I was 9 when most kids started at or 3 or 4. Hard work and respect. Dont screw around with the jokesters and when the coach is giving a speech try to look him in the eyes and pick up on what he likes quick and try to do it as much as possible.

I agree about how many dicks there are playing minor rep hockey now. Make sure to not back down to them when they are on a power trip in the dressing room.

You gotta show that you'll be able to keep up with the speed, and that you aren't afraid of contact. You will also have a better chance if you show that you can be a leader, on and off the ice. And you need to be naturally a good size, as my friend was cut because he's not exactly the biggest player out there.

I made my Midget 16 U A team and I think one of the reasons I made it is because I'm dedicated to getting better. Another reason is that there aren't any cuts I only started last season though and I'm a 95 birth year. Anyway, just try as hard as you can and make sure you have your head up at all times. The douchey kids pick out the weakest players to hit and make them look better. Nothing better than making a guy look bad when HE tries to hit YOU. Another thing, pay very close attention to what the coach(es) are saying. That is really important because if you don't do the drill right, you might as well not try at all. If you're confused, ask questions.

I agree with what you guys have added in about the douchey kids,DONT TAKE THEIR CRAP, I shouldn't be telling you this but if you have to shut someone's mouth on the team do it early.
