Hockey Manitoba would like to invite all females (18 years of age and older) to participant in a tryout weekend to select Team Manitoba to attend the Esso Women’s National Championship March 9 – 13, 2005 in Sarnia, ON. This year the selected coaching staff and evaluators will be selecting a Senior Women’s team to represent Manitoba. The staff of Jill Mathez (head coach), Terry Arksey (Assistant Coach), and Tony D’Angelo (Assistant Coach) are very excited about this opportunity to lead an elite group of athletes in the Championship.
The tryout dates have been set for December 18th and 19th, 2004 at the Max Bell Arena. The tentative times are: 10:30am-12:00pm, 12:15pm-1:45pm, and 5:00pm-7:00pm Saturday and Sunday. After participant numbers are confirmed for the tryout camp, players will be placed in a group and participate in practice and game situations. You will be notified of your specific ice times before that weekend. Please note that to be eligible to participate you must be 18 years of age or older as of December 31st, 2004 and be a registered member with Hockey Manitoba.
Beyond the tryout camp, your commitment to the team will include four – five ice sessions between January and March, and the National Championship March 9 – 13th.
Please be aware that this program is USER PAY. Therefore, the funding from Hockey Manitoba and Hockey Canada is very limited. Once the team is selected, the team will have the option to entertain some fundraising opportunities. The costs for your commitment to the team are approximate at this time as funding, flight costs, hotel rates etc, have not all been confirmed.
The cost for the tryout camp will be $65 plus GST ($69.55 total). Please include this payment (cheque payable to Hockey Manitoba) with your camp registration. Registrations will not be accepted without payment. The registration fee will be used to cover ice and facility costs, and a Hockey Manitoba jersey (which you will keep). If you are successful in being selected to Team Manitoba, the costs (which include all travel, meals, accommodations etc.) will be approximately $850.00 per player.
Please carefully consider the commitment required for this team, and if interested complete the enclosed profile form (along with registration fee) by Friday December 3rd, 2004.
