The cost of the training camp is $150. Players must pay the fee prior to the first session with cash or a cheque payable to the Welland Jr. Canadians. Players will also be required to bring the appropriate signed Permission to Skate (PTS) forms. Should the player bring incorrect payment methods or paperwork, they WILL NOT be allowed on the ice.

Minor hockey players require a PTS from their previous registered minor team if he has eligibility remaining. The form can be picked up from your minor hockey association.

Junior Players from an A or B category team, who were signed and protected from the previous season will require a PTS should they wish to attend a tryout. The Junior PTS form can only be picked up from the team that has your junior rights.

No PTS is required if the player is trying out for a Junior team at a higher level of competition than they played in the previous season.

Players from the United States must complete the USA Hockey/Hockey Canada Try-out Notice which can be found at: http://www.ohahockey.ca/files/uploaded_documents/175/USAH-HC_Tryout_Notice_2014-2015.pdf

Any interested players should register through our registration tab on the website as we will not be accepting walk-ons. For any questions, please email wellandjrcanadians@gmail.com or reach out via social media.

Training camp sessions will be open to Jr. Canadians staff members only.
