Based on how well the Team EAH (Elite Advantage Hockey) coaching staff knows the players on our invitation list, as well as the trusted relationships we have with our referring coaches, invited players do not need to go through a tryout process to participate. Rather, by committing to participate, invited players are guaranteed a spot on one of the two EAH 16U teams or be eligible to train and play with our EAH 18U team. Our target number of players will be 30 skaters and 4 goalies at the 16U age level with final roster size subject to change and left to the discretion of the TI staff. Roster size and number of players at the 18U level is left to determination by our coaching staff, however our target number is no more than 25 skaters and 3 goalies at this age level. Team assignments for tournaments will be based on EAH coaches’ assessments of player performance during the practice sessions. Our decisions will be based on a desire to field the most competitive, skill-appropriate teams for the tournaments.
