Team Description

The 12U Minor team will be chosen from 2005 & 2006 birth year tryout participants; it is expected that the roster will be comprised primarily of 2006 birth year players.

The team anticipates participating in the following tournaments:

Regional Tournaments (within driving distance):

  • Dallas Stars Texas Shootout (September 2-4th, 2017) (12U A bracket) (Dallas)
  • 1-2 other Regional Tournament may be considered (locations/dates TBD)

Non-Regional Tournaments (within the continental U.S.):

  • 2 Non-Regional Tournaments (dates/locations TBD)

Other Travel Commitments:
The team expects 4-5 DSTHL ‘away’ game weekends (within Texas), the details of which will be determined at the DSTHL scheduling meeting in mid-September.  Should the team advance to the DSTHL playoffs, 1-2 additional weekends in Dallas would be necessary.

Games & Scrimmages:
In total, the team expects to play approximately 45 games and scrimmages over the course of the season.

Practice Schedule: 
The team plans on practicing once during the week before non-travel weekends and twice during the week before travel weekends.  The team will also practice twice on the weekends when not travelling.  All practices will be a minimum of 1 hour in duration.

Ice practices will include full ice, half ice, and buckle practices. 

Off-ice Training: 
Off-ice training will be held as is reasonably practicable in conjunction with and in locations adjacent to on-ice practices.  Players may also be expected to complete off-ice training on their own throughout the season.

Association Practice Schedule: 
The association’s initial practice schedule in regards to times/rinks will be made available late July with a supplemental practice schedule being released upon finalizing league play.  In efforts to support a majority of the Houston-area rinks and the Houston Wild teams’ respective widespread demographics, the Houston Wild’s weeknight and weekend practices (as well as weekend host league games) will be held at the Bellerive Ice Center, the Willowbrook Aerodrome, and Ice Skate USA (Memorial City).  Wild players may expect to practice out of each facility throughout the season.

Hours of Practice Ice:  75 hours

Player Registration Fees:  $3,115 (for details on what is included in Player Registration fees and for payment options, including our payment plan, please see the 2017-18 Tryouts page).

Team Fees:
Upon formation of the team, Coach Fraser will work with the Team Manager and Team Treasurer to prepare a Team Budget for the season.

Such budget shall include: tournament entry fees (except the entry fee for the 2017 Texas Shootout, which is included in Player Registration Fees); additional ice purchases; off-ice training costs (if any); team events/meals; miscellaneous team expenses.

A ‘cash call’ will be made to all team families to fund these expenditures and we expect the amount of that cash call to be approximately $300 but shall not exceed $600.  It should be noted that the above costs may be significantly reduced by team fundraising efforts.  It should also be noted that any ‘cash call’ amounts collected but not spent by the team will be refunded to the families at the end of the season.

Apparel Requirements:
