2020-21 Prospect Showcases

In preparation for the 2020-21 Houston Wild tryouts, we will be hosting a number of Prospect Showcases, each consisting of an on-ice session and an informational meeting.
 
These Prospect Showcases are a great opportunity for prospective Houston Wild travel players to compete and showcase their abilities among their peers and before our age division coaches.
 
INFORMATIONAL MEETINGS: - Parents and players are welcome to join the informational meetings scheduled in conjunction with our Prospect Showcases to learn more about each coach's season plans for his team, the Houston Wild organization, and travel hockey in Texas. DUE TO PARENT NUMBERS, THESE MEETINGS WILL BE HELD OUTSIDE THE FACILITY (WEATHER PERMITTING) OR AS INDICATED IN THE SCHEDULE BELOW.
 
AGE-DIVISIONS - Players are invited to participate in their age-appropriate age division Prospect Showcases only.
 
RSVP - No RSVP is necessary. No charge.
 
GEAR - Full gear required.
 
8U MITE PLAYES ('12 or younger) - Based on the anticipated on-ice format of the 10U Prospect Showcases, any 8U Mite players ('12 or younger) are NOT eligible to participate in the Prospect Showcases.  In accordance with the USAH/TAHA Mite ADM Policy, '12 birth year players will be eligible to participate in 10U tryouts.  For more information, see page 30  of the TAHA Guidebook/Rulebook.

*ALPHA ASSIGNMENTS AT 12U AND 14U - Due to the large number of players in the 2020-21 14U and 12U age divisions note the following "alpha" assignments:
Mon/Aug 3 we will hold two (2) Prospect Showcase times for 14U age division.  Players are permitted to attend ONLY the time that corresponds with their last name.  In efforts to secure equal goalie attendance, goalies will receive an email invite specifying which session to attend.
 
Wed/Aug 5 we will hold two (2)  Prospect Showcase times for 12U age division.  Players are permitted to attend ONLY the time that corresponds with their last name. In efforts to secure equal goalie attendance, goalies will receive an email invite specifying which session to attend.
 
Wed/Aug 12 Prospect Showcase for 14U and 12U age divisions will be for all players within that age division.
CHECK IN - Your player should arrive at the rink for check-in forty-five (45) minutes prior to the assigned Prospect Showcase time.  
 
PINNIES - Upon check-in, your player will be assigned a clean/fresh numbered/colored pinnie.  
 
WATER BOTTLES - All players must bring their OWN, CLEARLY LABELED, PRE-FILLED WATER BOTTLE.
 
TEMPERATURE SCREENING - All Prospect Showcase participants will be subject to temperature screening before entering the rink and will be required to apply hand sanitizer.  
 
RINK ACCESS (PLAYERS) - Aside from checking in to receive their assigned pinnies – and with the exception of goalies who will be permitted to enter the rink 20 minutes prior to their scheduled ice time – players will not be permitted to enter the rink until 10 minutes prior to their scheduled Prospect Showcase session.  Skaters and goalies must exit the rink within 10 minutes following their session. 
 
RINK ACCESS (PARENTS) - Due to COVID-19, and in accordance with the rules and guidelines that applied to the 2020 development clinics, all locker rooms and spectator areas will remain closed throughout the Prospect Showcases.  Only board members, coaches, and designated volunteers necessary to administer the Prospect Showcase process will be allowed inside the rink.
 
Parents will NOT be allowed into the facility for any reason during the Prospect Showcases, except as specifically permitted to assist 12U and 10U goalies prior to their sessions or to use the restroom.  Parents are instead encouraged to watch the Prospect Showcases on LiveBarn.  
 
We understand that other programs/facilities may have different rules, but the Wild is committed to doing whatever it can to maintain healthy social distancing, limit group sizes as much as possible, ease the burden on volunteers and rink staff for maintaining clean facilities, and help prevent the further spread of COVID-19.  We regret that we cannot permit parent spectators, and we greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this regard.
