2022-2023 SEASON INFORMATION

FALL 2022-2023 TRAVEL TRYOUTS – APRIL 23 – MAY 1

Travel tryouts will be held at the Haymarket Iceplex starting April 23.  The tryout fee is $100 (if registered by 11:59pm, 4/15; $150 thereafter) and includes a tryout jersey to keep.  Walk-ins will not be accepted.  Registration for tryouts will require the NEW 2022-2023 USA Hockey Registration.

 

NEW TRYOUT PROCESS THIS SEASON.  READ BELOW TO KNOW THE PROCESS.

 

There is a mandatory parent meeting that at least one parent of each player should attend.  All goalies should attend the goalie tryout Saturday, 4/23, 5:30pm-6:50pm.  This tryout will be conducted and evaluated by Paddle Down Goaltending.  Goalies should also attend the other sessions for their age level.

WEEKLY PROFESSIONAL POWER SKATING INSTRUCTION

We include weekly professional power skating instruction for our 12U, and 10U teams.

 

GOALIE TRAINING

Piedmont offers the best goalie training program in the area! We will continue to use Nick Thompson and Paddle Down Goaltending. This season, we will use a combination of goalie mini-camps and goalie clinics. In addition, a goalie coach will attend a weekly practice to train our goalies at 10U, 12U, and 14U. Each goalie will be given an allowance of $500 from the club to secure private or semi-private goalie training sessions from Paddle Down Goaltending. Every full time goalie will also receive a $500 discount on season fees (8U goalies do not receive $500 discount).

 

Season fees include practices, regular season and exhibition games, practice jersey, head coach stipend.  Uniforms, tournament fees, off-ice training and miscellaneous team expenses are not included.

Practice schedule, subject to change based on number of teams fielded.
