Co-Ed & Girls Teams: Girls playing in the Co-Ed or Girls divisions can try out for both Co-Ed and Girls teams if they wish.
U8 Girls: While there is no provincial championship tournament for U8 Girls, players who are interested are encouraged to attend the GU10 tryouts
Should a player be selected for an All-Star team, the expected commitment will be one practice per week, regular attendance at house league games and the ability to compete at every game over the provincial championship weekend. Coaches will have the discretion to make exceptions on an as-required basis for their teams.
A practice schedule will be determined and communicated by the head coach once the All-Star teams are selected and will begin in May. It is likely the practices will be on a weeknight between 6:30 and 9:30 at Withrow, Riverdale or Greenwood.
There will be no fees for attending the tryouts. There will be a fee to play on an All-Star team that will cover practice rink rental, uniform, tournament fee and insurance. This will be communicated once uniform costs have been determined.
New uniforms are being designed and will include a jersey, shorts and socks. These uniforms will be kept by the players.
Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between A & B teams?
In some divisions there is enough interest to field two teams. Often, the A team is made up of primarily the older age in the cohort and the B team is primarily the younger age. Some teams have put the highest skilled players on A regardless of age. The final roster construction is always left up to the coaches.
I can’t attend either tryout. Can I still get selected for an All-Star team?
If it is impossible for a player to attend a tryout, the coach may agree to evaluate the player during house league play. This will be at the head coach’s discretion
I have a friend who is really good, but doesn’t play at Withrow. Can they play on the All-Star team?
WPBHL requires players to be registered and active in the house league program to be named to an All-Start team. Exceptions may be made for goaltenders with the approval of the WPBHL president.
My player wasn’t named to a team this year. Who do I talk to about this?
The decision of the head coaches on All-Star team rosters are final.
