Medford Tryout Information

OUR PROGRAMS: Medford Youth Hockey, Medford Girl's Hockey and Medford In-House Programs:

Medford Travel Team Tryouts for the following season are held in March at the LoConte Rink, Medford. 

Most youth hockey programs across Massachusetts including Medford Youth Hockey and Medford Girl's Hockey take advantage of the extra available Spring ice and the fact that all travel team players and all In-House players are at their peak ability and skill levels at the end of the season.

"SPRING TRAVEL TEAM TRYOUTS" for the following season are very common as most area travel leagues begin their seasons after Labor Day. Medford Youth Hockey and Medford Girl's Hockey incorporate "The Medford System" known throughout the area because Medford was one of the area's first programs to introduce outside graders to grade/evaluate their tryouts. Still used today, Medford Youth Hockey & Medford Girl's Hockey contract professional grading companies to perform grading/evaluations throughout the tryouts. Each player that tries out will receive a total grade that will be used to form travel teams from the list of all players.

If your player missed travel team tryouts and is interested in participating in the Travel Team Program for 2019-20, please contact ASAP our League President Steve Nocella at [email protected]

In-House Program On-Ice Player Grading/Evaluations are held at the beginning of the In-House Season usually in October at the LoConte Rink, Medford. 

All new Learn to Skate players, returning Clinic players and returning In-House Learn to Player team players attend on-ice grading/evaluation sessions in two groups alphabetically last name A-K and last name L-Z on two (2) days. Each player will be evaluated and placed in the appropriate ability group or team to begin the season.

During the season, each player's ability level will be assessed and players will be moved to the higher ability groups throughout the season.

The highest level Learn to Play Hockey will be comprised of (4) teams. These teams will follow USA Hockey ADM and play a mixed cross ice game schedule and full ice game schedule throughout the season.
