Practices will be held on Thursdays (July 9, 16, and 23) at Appleton Family Ice Center.
Squirt (10/11): 5:00 - 5:50
Peewee (08/09): 6:00 - 6:50
Bantam (06/07): 7:00 - 7:50
One tournament team will be selected from each age level (i.e. Squirt, Peewee, and Bantam).
The Fox River Force Summer program will consist of three 50 minute practices (July 9, 16, and 23) for $45 at the Appleton Family Ice Center. The first practice will be used as a tryout to select tournament teams to travel to Chicago for participation in the Windy City Summer Cup hosted by TCS Hockey. Due to the format of this tournament and limited last minute coaching availability, only one team will be selected at each age level (Squirt-10/11, Peewee-08/09, Bantam-06/07) for this season (the multiple team format will return next Spring). This is a Stay to Play tournament and all participants will be required to book hotel rooms through the tournament reservation system (~$200/night). Upon selection to a tournament team, parents will be required to promptly complete an additional registration with payment estimated between $125-$150 for tournament participation. You will be asked during registration if you would like your player to be considered for selection to a tournament team at their appropriate age level or if you are interested in practicing only.
The intent is to register teams at the A level in the tournament. However, there is a fairly good chance that they will not receive enough team entries at that level, meaning Force teams would get moved up to the AA division. Please understand going into this that the goal is to give some kids an opportunity to get back on the ice into actual game situations and to have a fun travel experience regardless of the level of competitiveness.
After selection of tournament teams, all registered Force participants will continue to practice together whether or not selected to a tournament team.
