Post date: Aug 16, 2013 12:00:56 AM

Hello Everyone!

High School Hockey Tryouts will be held Wed September 18th and 25th 5-7PM. Players in Grades 8-12 are encouraged to tryout!

We will be holding a pre tryout practice Wed September 11th from 6-7PM. This is a great opportunity to get some skating in and meet coaches and players before the official tryouts.

We are looking for players who are committed to coming to every practice and giving there all to the team. We will be practicing Wed nights either at 5pm or 6pm depending on which team you are placed on.

Team Values:

Commitment: Players and their parents are committed to making sure that the players attend every game and practice possible.

Respect: Everyone associated with the team (players, parents and staff), acts respectfully to each other, to the players, staff, and supporters of the opposing team, and to the referees.

Competitiveness: Regardless of the time remaining or the score. Santa Barbara players give their very best effort.

Pride: Santa Barbara players take pride in their collective and individual, skills, determination and achievements, and act at all times in a manner that does credit to themselves and their team.

Sportsmanship: Santa Barbara players, coaches, and supporters act in a courteous and respectful manner at all times, regardless of game outcomes or calls made by league officials.
