3). On the Ice – Waves tryout flyers distributed to the schools tomorrow. Jon gave an update on which coaches/volunteers will be available for ranking during tryouts. We need to be sure the link going out on the tryouts flyer works on the backend.

Tryouts – 134 kids tried out for the Dolphins, plus with the Waves teams we will have an increase of 30 kids.

Mites 1 & 2 – 11 players, in SSC Mites 3 – 10 players, in Falmouth , and Mites 4 – 10 players in either Falmouth or House. Option for Mite 1 to play full ice.
