September 2007 Newsletter Addendum – Boys Program News
Attached in this email you will find an updated warmup and tryout schedule. The schedule has been adjusted to accommodate players who will be going on the school trips to Laurentian Environmental Center in early October. This means that squirts and peewees will have two- 2 hour blocks for their respective tryouts instead of 6 – 1 hour sessions. Bantam tryouts are unchanged. They are having tryouts later in the month this season, but will be skating with the team coaches after warmups until tryouts begin. Bantams will receive a new schedule for October in the next week or so at warmups and by email.
Also attached in this email is a document providing an overview of our tryout process. It will answer many of your questions regarding Irondale’s tryout process. A seminar for parents on the tryout process is in the final planning stages and the date, time and place will be announced soon. This seminar will likely be held the week of September 23. Stay tuned for more details.
Even though we have one more registration session, our number of teams look like they are shaping out to this:
Squirts: A, B and C
Peewees: A, B and C
Bantams: A and C
A group of coaches and a few board members met in August to decide on the level of play for this season. We believe that hosting teams at these levels of play will put Irondale at competitive level providing the greatest chance for skill development of all players in our association.
