DS Tryouts
Hi U11, U13 and U15 SMGHA families,

We wanted to share a few important updates regarding this year’s DS (Select) program. 

DS (Select) Tryouts

The SMGHA will be running tryouts for players interested in our DS (select) program in our U11, U13 and U15 house league divisions on November 4th and 6th. 



About DS Hockey

  • The tryouts are open to any house league player in U11, U13 and U15. You must try out for the DS team in the division in which you are registered (i.e. if you’re registered in our U13 house league, you would try out for the U13 DS team).
  • Development Stream (DS) hockey offers an enhanced, try-out-based opportunity for house league players who are looking for a development bridge to competitive hockey or do not wish to make the commitment, in time or cost, to rep hockey but are seeking more competition and skill development that is afforded by house league alone.
  • DS practices/games do not conflict with house league practices/games.
  • As per OWHA, U11 teams will be permitted to play up to 8 games during the season (there will also be additional practices).
  • U13 and U15 teams will be permitted to play up to 8 games and up to 3 tournaments during the season (there will also be additional practices)

Tryout Fees:
$20 on Friday. Sunday is $30 saying CASH ONLY
