2019 Boston Lady Whalers Tryouts


Spring/summer tournament team tryouts

Monday - November 12, 2018

RINK: Canton Sportsplex


The Boston Lady Whalers will be holding our annual tryouts for our 2019 Spring/Summer Tournament Teams on Monday November 12, 2018 (Veteran's Day observed) at the Canton Sportsplex.  In 2019, we will again be compiling elite-level youth teams at each birth year from 2004's down through 2008's, and will be adding a 2009 Elite Team for this year.

Tryouts will be offered for players at the 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, and 2004 birth years.  We will not be holding tryouts for U19 & U17 age groups, for players born in 1999-2003, as those teams are selected strictly through our internal identification and NCAA coach recommendations.

Each tryout group will have one on-ice session in the late morning or early afternoon on Monday, November 12th.  Please find the times for each age group listed below:

Group 1 (Duggan):  10:00 AM

Group 2 (Knight):  11:00 AM

Group 3 (Bellamy):  12:00 PM

Group 4 (Kessel):  1:00 PM

Group 5 (Coyne):  2:00 PM

* Pre-registration will be closed online by 5:00 PM on Friday, November 9th.  At that time, the groups will be determined and registrants will receive an email with their group number and ice time.  The groups will be broken up by age with the youngest birth years starting at 10:00 AM, and the oldest groups at the 2:00 PM slot.  You will receive an email by Saturday November 10th in the afternoon letting you know which group you are in.

All tryouts will be held on Monday - November 12, 2018 at the Canton Sportsplex. The address for the rink is: 5 Carver Circle in Canton, MA 02021.
