Roanoke Junior Dawgs 2018-2019 Travel Hockey Tryouts

The Roanoke Junior Dawgs is a Tier II Hockey Club in the Carolinas Hockey League (CHL) that fields competitive teams that focus on player development while providing a safe and fun environment to build a lifelong love of the game. 

Due to a lack of available ice during Summer 2018, VYHA finds it necessary to conduct travel tryouts earlier this year than in past years.  Commitments by the Berglund Center and timing of RYD/VYHA Summer School have created schedule challenges.  It is likely that ice will not be available at the Berglund Center until mid-October 2018 and – despite ambitious plans – we do not know the exact date that ice will be available at the Lancerlot Sports Complex.  In an effort to allow Roanoke Jr. Dawgs travel teams to be prepared for CHL team declarations in the summer, 2018-2019 travel tryouts will be conducted this month.  Tryouts will be held beginning Saturday, March 24 at the Berglund Center in Roanoke, VA.  The tryout schedule for those days is as follows:

***All skaters and goalies are required to attend all tryout sessions for their respective age groups.  Supplemental tryouts may be scheduled at a later date for players who have commitments that cannot be avoided on these dates.  The Age Group Coordinator will coordinate this opportunity with any players who may need to tryout at a later date. You still must register at this time, even if you have a conflict with the tryout sessions. 

*** The organization's goal is to field teams at 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U.  Where number of participants can support, we will field multiple teams at some levels.  The number of teams and level of play is ultimately subject to the number and quality of the selected players.
