All-Star Tryout Dates Announced

Tryouts for Provincial Teams


Withrow Park Ball Hockey League has a proud tradition of sending All-Star teams to the Provincial Championships every summer in every eligible division. In 2023, the WPBHL was very successful winning many medals across co-ed and girls divisions.


Every player at Withrow has the opportunity to earn a spot on a provincials team and everyone interested is encouraged to attend the tryouts.


The 2024 championships are scheduled as follows:


July 5-7 Girls – U10/U12/U14/U18 Provincials – Mississauga

The league has named most of the coaches for our provincials teams. Confirmed head coaches are listed below. The remaining head coaches will be named in the weeks ahead. Head coaches will also have the discretion to name their bench staff.  Those interested in being a head coach in 2025 can apply in the fall.













***GU20 National Team

2004s and 2005s looking to earn a spot on the GU20 nationals team are encouraged to participate in the May 4 GU18 tryout by head coach David Valenta as there will be a significant overlap between the GU18 Gold provincials team and the GU20 nationals team.


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


U15/U16 Girls

While there is no U15 or U16 age group at provincials this year, the 2008s and 2009s are encouraged to try out for a U18 spot. The OBHF has committed to allowing WPBHL to enter three teams in GU18 if there is enough interest.



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.



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, insurance and other costs.  This will be communicated once team budgets have been determined.



Uniforms will include a jersey, shorts and socks along with other team wear. These uniforms will be kept by the players.


Frequently Asked Questions


What’s the difference between A & B or Gold & White teams?


In Co-Ed, there are A & B divisions. The A team is usually the older half of the age cohort and the most skilled minors.  B teams are most often minors.


In some girls divisions there is enough interest to field two teams. The Gold team is usually the highest-skilled team. The White team is often a development squad. These teams play in the same division in girls.


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 a Provincial All-Star team.  Exceptions may be made for goaltenders with the approval of the WPBHL president.


If I play on a team that is successful at the provincials, does that mean I get named to the team going to the national championships next year?


Teams that finish in the top 3 of U14, U16 and U18 championships, earn the WPBHL the right to send a team to compete in the National Championships the following year.  However, players on successful provincial championship teams are not guaranteed roster spots by virtue of finishing in the top 3 at the provincial championships.  Teams attending the national championships will be selected the following Spring.


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.
