The first tryouts for Major Peewee are quickly approaching.  Please read this article for important information regarding the tryouts. All dates for each tryout are listed on the team’s website.  Click on the team calendar for all the details.  Please arrive at tryouts at least 30 minutes prior, to sign in and receive a jersey.  I would like the opportunity to meet each player prior to them hitting the ice.


1)        All players must be registered with St Thomas Minor Hockey prior to stepping on the ice.

2)     This year the Major Peewee team can select up to 3 NRP’s (Non-Resident Player).  All NRP’s need to ensure they have the proper paperwork completed.  If you have any questions please contact the STMHA office or your home centre for details.

3)      All players must ensure that at least one parent has completed the Respect in Sports online course. This must be done BEFORE tryouts start as this needs to be completed in order to be eligible to make the team.

4)      All players will attend two 1.5 hour tryouts.  After that, there are some INVITE ONLY exhibition games, all players eligible for these games will be posted on the website.



Players will be evaluated on the following aspects:

1)      Hockey Skills: skating, speed, passing, shooting, stick handling

2)      Personal Skills:  effort, focus, commitment, listening, drive and determination

3)      Hockey senses:  positional play, play without the puck, creativity, aggressiveness

This team is looking for players committed to hard work, focus and team play.  Behaviour in the dressing room during tryouts will be monitored as well.


Goaltenders will be evaluated on skating, agility, reflexes, rebound control, angles, puck handling.  As with other players, goalies will be also evaluated on compete levels, effort, focus and their drive and determination to stop every puck.

Evaluations will be completed by 5-7 independent individuals that will be present at each tryout.   

All players need to provide their own water bottle and mouth guards are mandatory.

Players advancing through each phase of the tryouts will be posted on the website.   If you have any questions prior, during or after the tryouts, please contact me at [email protected] .
