** ALL Ontario Based Athletes
As most parents and players are probably not aware of unless you were at this past years OWHA 2005 Annual General Meeting they adopted a change as to when the 2006-2007 Ontario Tryouts may commence for female hockey. It was based on the large number of female hockey players who will attend The Worlds Largest Female Hockey Tournament in Brampton. In order to give all associations a fair and equitable start date they adopted ALL ONTARIO Based Female Hockey Tryouts May Only Begin the Week of April 17, 2006 You will see this on the OWHA website link provided below for Player Releases and Permission to Skate forms www.owha.on.ca/forms.asp.
We want you to be careful to NOT put yourself in a compromised situation whereby, you may inadvertently disrupt your teams personal association tryout schedule which normally see's this type of information released around March 2006. 

NCAA Quiet Period:
Each year the NCAA defines dates that NCAA Schools are NOT allowed to participate in the scouting of players.
This spring those dates are from April 24 - May 31, 2006 as shown below in the table as well simply clicking on the link we have provided you below:

Well we have been asked and requested to supply a showcase setting for top level female hockey athletes to be educated as well provide the environment and opportunity to be evaluated by the schools.
We have been working with National Level athletes and members of Canada's National Program for many years. They too focus their importance on education as well as their competitions.
Sportacular Event has been in business many years and deals ongoing with today's high performance female athlete in numerous sports.
We always provide educational elements for both parents and athletes at every event we host as the benefits far out weigh not doing so.
Let's face it being educated allows us all to make better more qualified decisions and creates some self-confidence that we are well versed when needed.
There is nothing worse in life then that awkward feeling when the time comes to make a decision and we have absolutely no idea what we are entering into.
That's where we have become the experts in educating parents and athletes who may have the opportunity to achieve their academic and athletic dreams and goals. 

So how does TOP 5 Work?
Well based on what we have just said previously and knowing what the schools are looking for we have developed the opportunity to allow you to create that TOP 5 players as a unit to participate. You gather the linemates that want to participate and will be able to compliment each others abilities for the weekend thus; Wow the scouts!
Your TOP 5 line will consist of registering 1 Center 2 Wingers and 2 Defence.
We will keep you together and create a full team of 3 complete lines. 

What if I just want to register by myself?
Well we can do that too.
There is a separate section for individuals to enter.
Like the TOP 5 you still need to provide us all the necessary information to allow us to review your application as well your background.
If we feel you are competent to play we will seed you into a team of others who have registered individually. 

I am a Goalie where do I fit in?
First of all we completely understand that, "Goalies are Unique and not different".
So Goalies have their own section to register similar to skaters.
You too must be able to supply all other information requested because of the uniqueness of the position. 

What if I am not playing AA hockey this year mostly because my center does not offer it?
We fully understand and expect to see those numerous "Diamonds in the Rough" that never seem to get that much-needed exposure they desire especially in a setting such as this. Your selection will be mainly based on a few factors:
Athletic credibility and verification as well your current geographical location and finally your hockey associations contacts. 

Say I am from another Province or Country do you offer any other special services?
Yes, we are actually looking into a Shuttle Bus from Pearson International Airport for both our athletes and our guests from the numerous Universities and schools abroad.
This is not confirmed at this time but we are working towards this to best accommodate your travel needs. 

HOW are the teams formed?
Well our team alone will create the team rosters based on all registrants received.
