Players are highly encouraged to pre-register for tryouts online using the link found above.  Walk-in registrations will also be accepted on the night of tryouts.

Wild Teams
The Granite State Wild offers Minor and Major teams that are 'birth year specific' (ie, 2005, 2006, 2007), as well as Select teams that are combined birth year-- Squirts 2009 & 2020, Peewee 2007 & 2008, Bantam 2005 & 2006.  More details about these various team offerings and the leagues in which they play can be found in the Granite State Wild 2019-20 Program Guide.

All players interested in trying out for a Wild Major or Minor team are required to attend at least one tryout session and are strongly encouraged to attend both tryout days.  Players who are not chosen for a Major/Minor team are invited to attend the Wild Select tryout night for their age group.

Players interested in playing for a Wild Select team are required to attend the one Select tryout session for their age group. 

Wild Mite Development Evaluations will be done in one session (see schedule for details)

Tryout Process & Notification
Players should plan to arrive no less than 40 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of each session to allow time to check in and receive their tryout pinnie before getting dressed.  They must return the pinnie at the completion of each night's tryout.

All players will be evaluated by a group of independent evaluators and the team's head coach, if one has been named.  Following the completion of tryouts for each age group, players will be ranked against other players trying out for their position (forward, defense, goalie).  These rankings will be used as the primary basis for selection.

All players will first be notified of their selection status within 48 hours of the completion of the second tryout night for their group.  Please be sure to confirm that the email address and phone number connected to your SportEngine profile are updated when registering your player for tryouts.  The registration contains a link where your profile information can be updated.

2019-2020 DYHA Head Coaches

Head coaches for Granite State Wild Major & Minor teams will be announced prior to tryouts.  In most cases, head coaches for Wild Select teams will not be named until after the completion of Major/Minor tryouts.  This is due to the need to determine availability of coaches once Major/Minor player selections have been finalized.
