1. AGE – Players must be at least 18 years of age as of November 1, 2011 and be residents of NY State or be enrolled fulltime in a NYS college/university.(i.e. those persons who are attending college in NYS bur have residency in another state are eligible). NOTE: PLAYERS NOT MEETING THESE REQUIREMENTS MUST BE REVIEWED AND APPROVED BY NANCY LEGACY, SPORT CHAIRPERSON TO BE CONSIDERED ELIGIBLE.
2. REGISTRATION – Players must register online at the LPESWG registration site and pay a $35 tryout fee before they can be allowed to participate in a tryout: there are no player forms and no on site registration will be allowed. The registration site link will be posted on the Lake Placid Empire State Winter Games web site. www.empirestatewintergames.com
3. TRYOUTS – A t the tryout players must present a copy of their tryout registration email confirmation. Players must also actively participate in an on-ice tryout that has been publicized on the LPESWG website. Players who do not register online and pay the tryout fee must not be permitted on the ice for a tryout. Players who do not participate in published tryout cannot be named to a roster.

➢ TRYOUT REGISTRATION/DEADLINE: Online registration for tryouts will be shut off 24 hours before the date/time of the last tryout date published on the LPESWG website or at a date/time requested by the Sport Chairperson Nancy Legacy.

➢ TRYOUT DATES: Tryouts will be completed by JANUARY 15, 2012. Coordinators must provide dates/times/locations to the Sport Chairperson as soon as possible so it can be posted in a timely fashion on the LPESWG website. If the Coordinator must change a tryout date/time/location, the Sport Chairperson must be notified so the update may be posted, and all those registered online must be notified of the change. The Sport Chairperson will provide the Coordinators on a regular basis with information of those who have registered.

Should a Coordinator desire to add additional tryout dates to the list originally provided; the request must be made at least one week prior to the desired date, and approved by the Sport Chairperson. Once additional dates are approved LPESWG will post on the website and re-open the online registration.

Players must register online at the LPESWG registration site and a pay a $35 tryout fee before they can be allowed to participate in a tryout; there are no paper forms and no on-site registration will be allowed. Players must present a copy of their tryout registration email confirmation. Failure to do enforce this policy opens you and the Games as whole up to liability issues!

It is strongly recommended that a selection committee be used to evaluated applicants and assist in the selection of the team.

The goal in scheduling tryouts is to give every player a fair opportunity to show her skills in a tryout format. Once you have completed your tryout process you may not allow late applicants to attend a practice session as a tryout prospect. To do so would be unfair to the players who attended the published tryout date(s).

➢ TEAM: Teams will consist of 20 players (including two goalies) and two coaches. These 22 people will be receiving an item as selected by LPESWG. This item, along with the player jersey and socks will be distributed by the Sport Chairperson’s registration/sign in committee at the rink at least one hour prior to the regions first game in the competition. At the completion of the games, 22 MEDALS will be issued to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams.
