Registration for the 2019-2020 McKinney High School Hockey tryouts are open. Important information on how you will sign up, player requirements, and financial payments are outlined below. The tryout location, date and times are listed below. Our goal is to roster 3 teams this season – Varsity Gold, Varsity Bronze and Junior Varsity.
Tryouts are scheduled on the following day and times
Tryouts are free and held at the Children’s Health StarCenters – 6993 Stars Ave, McKinney, Texas 75070
Players who are going into 8-12 grades and believe they should be considered for a varsity team should participate in the Varsity tryout. If there are still open varsity spots after tryouts the varsity coaches may ask players to return to the second tryout for another look at those players. The second JV tryout is open to all 7-10th grade players not previously selected for a varsity team. It is very important that every player try to make the tryouts (although players who are out of town will be considered). Please contact me if you are out of town on this date.
Please arrive 45 minutes prior to the tryout the time to check in. Players should bring dark and light-colored jerseys, preferably with their last name on it. All players will also receive a number plate to pin on.
Contract commitments and uniform fittings will occur immediately following the tryouts for all players selected for a team. You must commit to a contract to lock in your player’s spot on the team. Please bring your player’s USA Hockey Number for the 2019-2020 season because that number will be required for contract signing. If your player has never played travel or high school hockey, please also bring a copy of the player’s birth certificate that we may submit to USA Hockey.
Our estimated fees for skaters this year are $2,150 for Varsity Gold and $1,850 for Varsity 2 or JV, if paid by cash or check (the cash/check discounted price). If paying by credit card, you will pay $50 more. The club fee pays for the practices for the teams, the league fee for all games, and coaches’ pay. For Varsity Gold, the fee also covers the State Tournament Fee. As with past years, goalies may play for free. Additional items that you may have to purchase: USA Hockey registration, player equipment (please remember that black or navy helmets and gloves are required for skaters and that they will not be allowed to play with other colors), and uniforms (although returning players may continue to wear their existing uniforms).
The uniform and spirit wear costs need to be paid up front. Plans are three payments - October 15, November 15, and December 15, and extend plan with six payments on the 15th of the month from September through February. We would certainly appreciate it if you can pay in full, but we want to make it is as easy as possible to afford to play high school hockey. If you plan to pay by check, we ask that you bring a sufficient number of checks for all required payments, i.e., if you want to pay via the plan with six payments, you need to bring six checks so that you can provide post-dated checks for each payment.
Thank you, and we hope to see you in August at tryouts.
