Tryout times and locations will be available shortly on the "Tryout/Team Information" page.
Registration for all teams will stay open thru the FIRST tryout skate for each respective team.
Tryout Fee: $40.00 - If registered on or before April 18. Fee becomes $50.00 on April 19.
Which team should I tryout for?
Players MUST tryout for the team from area where they live, not necessarily where they play. The only exception to this would be for those playing in the Metro Girl's HS Hockey league, and we have assigned those playing in that league to specific teams by school.

What is needed to register?
The only outside documentation you will need at the time of registration is the player's 2013-2014 USA Hockey Registration Confirmation Number. This was emailed last summer/fall when the player was registered for the season. If you do not still have this, your team manager should have a copy, or you can get one by going this website:
This is a USA Hockey/MAHA sanctioned event and all players must be USA Hockey registered. If you are playing on a High School team, you are still eligible to play in this event, but you MUST be USA Hockey registered before you can register to tryout for this event. If you need to register for USA Hockey - please go to www.usahockeyregistration.com/login_input.action
Unlike the "normal" travel tryout process - where iterested skaters are able to walk up, register and pay for their tryout on the spot, the West Michigan Sports Commission is not permitting payment and/or registration on-site. All players MUST register online prior to the tryout, therefore it is critical that players register as soon as possible to ensure that their payment is accepted and they are able to participate in the tryout. There will NOT be registration options available at the tryout site and registration will close 4 hours prior to the tryout time.
Refunds for tryout fees will be granted ONLY outside 7 days prior to the tryout date, with proper communication with the tournament directors. There are several factors that make up the necessity for such a policy: 1) A tryout jersey is included as a part of the tryout fee which has to be ordered well in advance based on the number of registered participants. 2) We are still required to pay for the ice rental and we plan those expenses based on the number of registrants. Therefore - once the actual tryout date arrives, regardless of whether your player skates or not (but especially if they skated), there will be no refunds.
