Want to play for the Jr. Greyhounds?

March 11, 2016

Players who aspire to play within the Soo Jr. Greyhounds rep program for the 2016-2017 season — this message is directed towards you and your parents.

Sault Minor Hockey, a division of the Sault Major Hockey Association, continues to take try-out registration for all players interested in being part of the various Jr. Greyhounds atom and pee wee teams for the 2016-2017 campaign.

Sault Minor Hockey president Denis Paradis has confirmed to HockeyNewsNorth.com that it intends to operate Jr. Greyhounds rep teams at the pee wee major AAA, pee wee major AA, pee wee minor AAA, pee wee minor AA, atom major AA and atom minor AA levels for the 2016-2017 campaign.

Registration forms are available via the saultminorhockey.ca website.

For starters, atom AA and pee wee AAA tryouts will be held on Saturday, April 16 and Sunday, April 17 at Community First Soo Pee Wee Arena. A schedule will be posted on the Sault Minor Hockey website prior to tryouts.

Of note, players wishing to play pee wee AA must first try out for their respective AAA team.

Some players may require completed and signed NOHA tryout permission and release forms, which will be on the website. Instructions for those who needs a release form signed are available on the 2016-2017 registration form via saultminorhockey.ca.

Interested players from teams and leagues that are not sanctioned by Hockey Canada are eligible to try-out, provided that at the end of this season, the player is not participating in the non-sanctioned program.

Tryout registration deadline for the Jr. Greyhound programs is Sunday, April 3.

Tryout costs will remain the same — $45 for atom $70 for pee wee. No additional fees apply to players trying out for pee wee AA after the AAA sessions.

For the record, atom and pee wee Jr. Greyhounds teams are currently the only AAA and AA Hockey Canada-sanctioned teams in Sault Ste Marie.
