2017 Tryout Survival Guide

Tryout and evaluation time can be one of the most stressful times of the year for Illinois youth hockey families, even more so if you are new to our great game. AHAI partners, NorthShore University HealthSystem Orthopaedic Institute and Tier 1 Athletic Performance, along with a host of trusted sources, have written several great articles to help our families and their players put their best skate forward during the tryout and evaluation process.

Of particular note is the video below, “A Study on Praise and Mindsets.” Parents often tell their kids to work hard. This is sound advice to help them succeed in hockey and in life. Putting forth “effort” to learn and grow is an important prerequisite for future success. How we as parents, coaches and teachers praise that effort may be even more important than we realize. This short video illustrates the effect we can have on our kids with the proper reinforcement of their effort.
