Q: What is the schedule?
A: One week prior to tryouts we close registration, build our master schedule and email all families registered with a report time and planned end time for the day.
Q: Why do we have to wait until the week prior to know the TW schedule?
A: We typically have very large numbers attending our tryouts and many families wait until the last minute to register. If we send you a schedule and see a major change up or down in numbers at each age group, it means change which really aggravates families so closing registration the week prior allows us to build one schedule.
Q: What should families plan for until the schedule is sent?
A: We recommend that families plan for Friday evening 4-10PM, all day Sat(8AM-9PM) and then on Sun 8AM-3PM however our goal is to have each player only attend one day so a hotel stay is not needed.
Q: What should families really expect in the May 22nd-23rd tryout?
A: The goal is for TW to schedule a weekend that minimizes hotel cost for parents while still allowing the TW staff to properly evaluate players. Goal of our scheduling is to have each age group only on one day for the open camp. This is primarily scrimmages. This is just an example but are goal is something like 14's on Saturday only, 16/19’s on Sunday only. Goalies may have a tryout the night prior or the morning before based on numbers. If we have 60 skaters, then we build 4 teams at that age group and we need 8 goalies. Any more we really won’t give the goalies a fair evaluation, so we cut down to a manageable number.
Q: What should families expect in the final camp if invited in early June?
A: This is a true 3-day training camp. We have speakers and classroom with Junior and College coaches. On ice positional instruction and training. TW alumni counselors currently playing College hockey enabling players to talk with someone about their recent journey from TW to College. Yes we are picking teams but we are training and evaluating a players ability to learn and translate that to the scrimmages. Parents will be responsible for players at night and when not part of on ice or classroom with TW.
Q: Why do you run all this in Fond du Lac & Stevens Point….For those of us from the NW, this is a long weekend.
A: We run a professional weekend tryout with a very large staff of TW coaches, counselors and guest speakers. If we segregate this into different parts of the state, we take away from the overall experience and increase cost. We ask for a little from those in the NW part of the state and hope you understand that many of the TW teams play a majority of their weekends in MN making your fall travel very light.
