Try Outs (Paris Ringette)

PrintTry Outs

Southern would like to kick-start the process for AA and A Provincial tryouts with the collection of the Player Intents as Associations need to plan ahead for ice for tryouts and ice allocations for next season. We are dealing with a unique and fluid situation this spring and we'll need to adjust as the process continues; however, the data collection about our players' intents for tryouts can begin today and help us be prepared to respond to any changes. Please notice that the deadline for the Player Intents is April 5, 2020 and we plan on keeping it as intents are done individually from home. Kindly remind your players that if they don't fill out the Player Intent Form, they won't be allowed to tryout for any association; if they are not sure, it's better to fill out the form than not.

For now, we will keep the rest of the deadlines as established on the attached "SRRA Tryout Process"; however, we will revise the document in two weeks and adjust the deadlines as needed. We are aware that the situation this spring is unique and Associations might not be able to secure ice for tryouts within the established deadlines. We might be forced to postpone tryouts to June or even fall. We will update everyone if any deadlines have to be moved as the process moves forward.separately as well.


More information on the process is below.

SRRA AA/A Team Declaration and Tryout Process 2020-2021

The following document sets out important timelines that must be met in proceeding through the player declaration, team tryout and team selection process. This process should facilitate informed communication between the Southern Region and its member Associations. It should help to identify potential conflicts so that they can be dealt with in a timely and mutually respectful manner, allowing the process to move along to completion.


If there is one thing parents want, it is to see their child enjoying themselves and getting better at playing the great sport of Ringette. This is what makes Provincial Ringette a worthwhile investment. Let us be reminded of this value, remembering it is the players who make this great sport what it is.


This document is designed to assist parents and players better understand the tryout process.


Goal: The primary goal of the Southern Region is to work cooperatively to create as many competitive teams at each competition and age level within the Region as possible, and thereby ensuring that qualified players have a place to play.



1] To improve communication among Southern Region member associations and teams through documentation and preliminary meetings.

2] To increase the transparency of the process by ensuring that everyone knows what the steps are and how decisions are to be made.

3] To continue to enhance the player-tracking process.

4] To form an Evaluation Committee to monitor the process. The Committee will include a diverse representation of individuals from across our Region and would be empowered to enforce all steps and associated actions as identified in the process.

5] To implement a timeline for the completion of the AA and A tryout process.

6] To help facilitate the number of teams, the distribution of teams throughout the Region, as well as to help provide the most beneficial selection of teams to qualified players within the Southern Region.


All Southern Region players intending to try out for any A or AA Provincial level team are required to complete the online Intent-to-Tryout Form no later than April 5, 2020. The summary version of the form will be shared with every Association’s President by Tuesday, April 7, 2020.


Players will not be allowed to participate in any tryout session without having completed the online form. Any player intents submitted after April 5, 2020 will only be accepted via an email to Fernanda Serroul [[email protected]] from the respective Association President


Players from outside of Southern Region who move into our region due to relocation for post- secondary education or other legitimate reasons should register their intent as soon as they make the commitment to move, rather than waiting to physically arrive in the Region. For instance, a player moving into the Region to attend university (i.e. Brock, Toronto) should indicate their intent to play at the A or AA level as soon as they accept their offer of admission, allowing our member associations to include these players in their planning process.




● A player may attend as many tryouts as they wish.


● Tryouts are conducted by each Association in keeping with their established Operating Procedures. However, the timelines contained in this document should be incorporated into these various procedures.


Final Roster Requirements


▪ A ‘full’ roster meets the requirements of RO for number of players needed to play in Sanctioned Events. Clearly roster size within those constraints is the decision of the Coach/Association. Teams can leave space to add a player or two after this date – especially at the U19 level where post-secondary player movement occurs. This roster should include a full complement of players for the team, including at least one goalie.


Evaluation Committee


▪ An Evaluation Committee will be formed to coordinate the AA/A process.


▪ The mandate for this committee will be to review and/or meet with each Association that is willing to host an AA/A team, review their submitted forms and ensure that the minimum criteria are met. The committee will then recommend for approval the number of AA/A teams at the respective levels covered by this process (U12, U14, U16 and U19). The recommendations of this committee will be binding.


▪ The committee will include the SRRA Chair, Southern Region Membership Services Representative along with 3 nominated SRRA Representatives.


▪ The committee will have the authority to ensure that proper tryout procedures are being followed by associations and to recommend the levy of up to a $500 fine and loss of team for Associations not following the rules and processes in place. 9 SRRA AA/A Team Declaration and Tryout Process 2020-2021


Recruitment & Solicitation of Players


▪ Any recruitment or solicitation of players by associations, Coaches/Bench Staff is completely prohibited and the consequence of this action may result in a fine and loss of team


▪ No Offers to Play may be made until the Home and/or Current Associations have made “Roster Spot Not Offered” releases or no team is being hosted by the Home or Current Associations. This process must follow the Closest Association Matrix.
