Never too early to think hockey

The 'Roos are on the lookout for players, and it could be you.

It’s shorts weather outside, so, this being Canada, we’re gearing up for our national winter past time: the ‘Roos are hosting tryouts next week.

Beginning Monday, Aug. 20 the ‘Roos are running practices at the twin arenas.

Practices run 8-9:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The schedule for week two will be posted at the end of the first week.

For new players, try-outs will cost $50. Players from last year will not be required to pay.

Payments and forms are required to be filled out before the first practice, so it is recommended players show up no later than 7:30 for the first practice, to allow time to fill out forms and smooth out any wrinkles that may pop up.

For more information, early forms and early payment, contact Brooke L’Heureux at 250-747-1000.
