Coach Looks & Try-Outs

The Junior Brahmas Coaches invite all players interested in trying out for the Junior Brahmas -ages 10U through 16U- to sign up for a free, hour-long skate before the coaching staff. The NYTEX Sports Centre has generously allotted multiple sessions for each age group to showcase their skills before the coaching staff – dates and times listed below. 

Coach Look skates like these are a great way to prepare for the formal tryouts (to be announced soon). Take advantage of the free hour of ice time and contact Hockey Director Knute Anderson and get your player RSVP’d for thisunique opportunity to be in the best preparedness possible for Jr Brahmas tryouts. Contact the appropriate coach for the age group using contact information published below.
