Good Afternoon,
We have a few additions to our schedule and a change as well. Our practice on November 11 has been changed from 6am to 2:50pm at the APM Centre due to a later opening of the rink that day. Also, we were able to secure some ice and gym time at the Cari complex for a few dates. November 9th, November 23rd, December 7th, December 23rd and January 11th have been booked for us. We will be on the ice from 4:45pm-5:30pm then in the gym from 5:45pm-6:45pm. Please make sure kids have shorts and sneakers with them. 
There will be an email coming shortly to verify the gym time on Saturday mornings as well.

October 12, 2015 5:10 PM 6:10 PM Novice AA Tryout

Novice AA Conditioning and Tryouts

Thank You all for choosing to participate in the Novice AA Tryouts.


First thing we need to clarify to everyone trying out is that it is extremely hard to narrow the players down to 15 skaters as everyone has their own strength's and weaknesses. The coaching staff will be leaving all “politics and friendships” out of the selection process and we will be searching for the top players that we feel will make our team competitive throughout the entire minor hockey season.


I want everyone to understand going into this, that there are extra costs (above and beyond minor hockey), associated with playing on a AA team.

  • Extra Ice times (we have to pay for an extra 1/2 hour of ice time every week)

  • This also includes some extra practice time in November/December (we may look at renting ice from other associations, ie North Rustico and Kensington).

  • Gym time

  • Island wide travel; we have Novice AA teams from tip to tip and we will be required to travel around PEI to play at these arenas

  • We we will be participating in 3-4 tournaments on PEI (we are not allowed to travel off PEI yet), extra costs are associated with these as well.

  • Each player will be asked to purchase a “weighted puck” for practice. ($3-$4)

  • There will also be some team bonding outside of the rink that will cost extra as well.



If you are comfortable with the extra costs associated with playing AA hockey, please try out. If your child wants to try out and you are not comfortable with the extra costs, please let us know before we make the final cuts and we will be “The Bad Guys”.


This years team we will be searching for Hard Workers, Team Players and Respect for both the game as well as the other members of the team.


We have a few basic rules to start out the season:

  1. All Players RESPECT their teammates, coaches, parents, referees, opposing players and the game.

  2. 24 Hour Rule... If you as a parent have an issue with a coach/management. You are asked to wait 24 hours before addressing the issues with the coaching staff.

  3. 45 Minutes arrival before the game so we can do a proper off ice warm up/pre game speech.

  4. 10 minute injury rule... If your child is hurt on the ice during a game and a member of the coaching staff needs to attend to them, they must spend 10 minutes of playing time in the dressing room to be assessed to determine if they are fit to resume play.

  5. Spring Hockey comes second.

    Yes people play spring hockey and we understand that, but you are making a commitment to this team for the year and we ask that this hockey comes first. We will do our best to accommodate the spring hockey practices when they happen, as long as we don't have ice time booked too.

  6. All players are on a TEAM... Selfish plays will not be tolerated. There is no I in team!

  7. If a player doesn't understand something they are encouraged to ASK a coach for an explanation.

  8. Players are EXPECTED to come to the rink ready to:

    1) Work as hard as they can.

    2) Have FUN!



All Tryouts at APM Center, Cornwall.
