WORA Competitive Tryout Update for the 2018-2019 season

As in the past, tryouts for U14, U16, and U19 Provincial teams will take place in the spring. (Dates to be announced)

This year we will also be holding U12P evaluations in April with the completion of the tryouts in the fall. These evaluations will provide information to help us with the decision making process at fall tryouts.

WORA is currently planning for two U12P teams.

Tryouts for U14AA, A, U16AA, A and U19A teams will completed this spring.

WORA plans to host three U14, two U16 and one U19 competitive team for the 2018-2019 season.

As is true every year, the intended number and makeup of teams is dependent upon various factors including skill level and number of players trying out and these factors can change our intentions.

Players intending to tryout for U14, U16 or U19 A or AA next season must complete the ERRA intention to tryout out form, which is available at the following link:


Note that the form must be submitted by February 25th.
