U13 AA Tryout Fee
U15/U16/U18 AAA/AA Tryout Fee
All fees must be paid in full prior to the first skate, no payments will be accepted at the arena. Contact Registrar for information. In U13 AA the tryout fee will cover a minimum of THREE ice sessions or until the player is released, whichever occurs first. In U15, U16, U18 AAA/AA, the tryout fee will cover a minimum of four ice sessions until the player is released or the end of September, whichever occurs first. Once tryouts begin, this fee is non-refundable.
There will be no additional fee for participation in SSAC Fall Tournament - U15 AA | U15 AAA | U16 AA | U16 AAA dates to be announced - or the U18 AAA Pre-Season Tournament. Exhibition games may be used to assist the coaching staff in reaching final selections and the players may be charged a small additional fee to defray costs of referees, ice rental, and other team expenses.
Tryout drills are the responsibility of the on-ice coaches in discussion with the off-ice coaches and Category Directors
It must be presumed by the player and the parent(s) that the Coaching staff will evaluate the player in a fair and equitable manner, keeping in mind that the criteria for selection is not only based on skill, but on team roles and player’s attitude and character. All players, parents, and coaches must conduct themselves within the expected standards outlined in the CAC Code of Conduct and Hockey Edmonton Respect the Game.
The Canadian Athletic Club leaves the evaluation of all players to the team coaching staff who are exposed to player skill and character and are prepared to evaluate the players according to their plans for the team they have been asked to manage for the hockey season. The CAC Board members do not provide input into this process beyond “underage player” guidelines.
From the first week of September to the conclusion of the pre-season, the team rosters will be pared down to a maximum of 15 skaters and 2 goalies for U13AA and 17 skaters and 2 goaltenders for U15/U16 /U18AA (18 skaters and 2 goaltenders at U18AAA). It should be noted, however, that player movement between CAC teams may continue until January 10 (with the approval of the CAC Hockey Operations Committee).
All U15 and U16/U18 players released after the first week of open tryouts will be conducted in a one-on-one interview with the coaches giving a brief explanation as to the reason(s) and providing the player with the options open to him/her along with applicable contact phone numbers. If a released player would like tryout for another club, please see Elite Player Movement for Waiver and Notification-of-Tryout forms at aacouncil.com.
When a player is released:
• there may be an invitation to try out by the coach of one of the other CAC teams at the same level, or
• continue to try out at the next lower level, or
• request entry to the AAA Elite Player Movement or AA Model Player Movement process, go to Elite Council for step-by-step instructions and information, or
• return to the Federation program.
Our first responsibility is to develop hockey players from within the CAC draw area of Edmonton.
Once a player is selected to a team (mid September to early October), registration fees are due. The fees may be paid in one, two, or three instalments as per Player Fees page. At this point, the team is responsible for all team expenses beyond what is included in the players fees presented at the team startup meeting.
All Canadian Athletic Club teams shall declare official team rosters as per Hockey Edmonton Rules of Registration and in accordance with the timelines set out by the CAC Board of Directors.
