General Information

The try-outs will be a full-day affair. We will divide everyone into smaller groups, and start the day with several hours of skills drills- both individual and group drills. After that, we will have a lunch break (you may want to pack a lunch), after which we will run a full-length scrimmage. Depending on the number of participants in each try out, we may choose to only select a sub-section of players (around 30) to participate in the full scrimmage, so that we can better observe the main candidates in a most competitive game situation possible. Everyone is welcome to stay and watch the game.

The venue is approximately an hour and six minute drive from Pearson International Airport (6135 Silver Dart Dr, Mississauga, ON L5P 1B2) in Toronto and an hour drive from London International Airport (1750 Crumlin Road, London, ON N5V 3B6)

Try-Ciy Roller Girls have provided us with a welcome package, which you can download here.

Hi there,

I have never had a passport, but I have started the process to get one, but I won’t have it in time for the tryout. Am I still eligible to tryout?



Didi November 15, 2013 at 1:28 pm

Id like to come watch- is the spectator pass only available at the venue, or can i reserve one online? Thx!


Flyin' Bryan Killman November 15, 2013 at 10:17 pm

Hi Didi.

No need to reserve a spot. Just show up and pay the spectator fee and you’re good.

Are there blocked rooms at a discount for hotels you recommend?


Flyin' Bryan Killman November 15, 2013 at 10:18 pm

Hi Kelli.

No, there are no blocked hotel spaces or discounts for the hotels we recommended. They are just the hotels with the best ratings in the cloest proximity to the try-out venue.

Who is on the selection committee? Is it just the coaching staff so it will be the same observers for all the try-outs?



Flyin' Bryan Killman November 19, 2013 at 8:43 pm

Hi Ericca.

The team will be selected by the coaching staff.
