Why a scam? Ive looked into a few "tryout" camps and i know some seem to have a fee. Do they not select players who turn out to the camps?
$275 for a tryout, 70 guys show up, nobody makes the team.
(and off the record they have no plans to sign anyone)
it's an easy way to pay for the ice, get some media attn and make 10grand
(jerseys are dug up from last tryouts, guys wear their own socks, equip, etc)
The Mountain West Hockey League, a Senior Elite hockey league with clubs in Aspen, Las Vegas, Park City, Salt Lake City, Sun Valley, and Ventura, is hosting an open tryout on Saturday September 8, 2012 at Sobe Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
Players with professional, college, or Junior experience are welcome to attend.
