Registration for tryouts will be disabled at 2:00 pm on the day of tryouts and will not be re-enabled until after tryouts occur that day. 

If you plan to register, do not wait until just before your tryout.

Schedule 2021-2022

All tryouts are at St. Lawrence College (Kingston) campus. Please use the South entrance to the gym.  Notice for parking: Please drop your player off at South entrance to the gym, however,  SLC has asked us to direct parents to park their cars on the north side of the college.  After drop off and pick up, please exit area immediately.

Tryout Procedure

  • All players must register online prior to attending tryouts.
    We will not register players at the door. 
  • There is a $30 non-refundable registration fee to attend.
  • Players should arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the scheduled tryout time and line up outside wearing a mask and wait to enter the facility.
  • Athletes MUST bring their own ball and a filled water bottle to tryouts.
  • Covid vaccination status:
    • Players born in 2009 and older will need to attest they have been fully vaccinated and bring a paper copy of their proof of vaccination to the first tryout. If they do not have proof with them at the tryout, they will not be permitted to try out.
    • For those born in 2009, who have just recently become eligible for vaccination, they must have at least 1 dose in order to attend tryouts. Participation on any team will require full vaccination.
    • Players born after 2009 do not need proof of vaccination at this time.
  • Parents wishing to attend and observe:

    • For all U12 tryouts, 1 parent will be permitted to attend the tryout. 

      • All U12 parents attending must show proof of vaccination to be allowed entry. 

      • All parents MUST wear a mask the entire time and stay physically distanced in the designated viewing area.  They are not permitted on the court.

    • For U13/14 and older, parents will NOT be permitted to attend tryouts. 

  • Attendance

    • Attending both tryouts is recommended but not necessary.

    • Players can be evaluated by attending only one tryout, however, a player MUST inform our Competitive Director at comp@kingstonimpact.ca if they will only be attending one in order to be considered for a team.

Selection Process

After the second tryout, successful players will be notified of their selection by phone and team lists will be posted online within 2 to 3 days.  Unsuccessful players will not be called

When you confirm your participation on a team after tryouts, a $500 deposit will be collected online at that time.  Players cannot start practicing until that is paid.  

If a player DOES NOT receive a call within 2-3 days, please check the website for the team list. 

If you have any questions about the evaluations, you may reach out to our Competitive Director or President

Refunds will NOT be made to individuals who accepted a spot on a team but decided later on not to play.   

If COVID substantially impacts this season, then a pro-rated refund will be provided.   

The remainder of the fees will be collected once teams have finalized their budgets and the Impact have a better understanding of how COVID will affect the teams.   

Additional Team Information

In recent years, we have held a parents information meeting at tryouts.  Due the ongoing pandemic, this will not be possible.  To help inform parents and players with the type of commitment a competitive season requires, we are providing the following information.

    • Gym time
    • Uniforms
    • Equipment
