Players born between January 1, 2002, and December 31, 2012, are eligible to tryout for a McKinney North Stars Team. Only two players born in 2012 are able to play for any DSTHL club.
All McKinney North Stars tryouts will be held at the McKinney Children's Heath StarsCenter.
Each player must currently be registered for the upcoming 2020-21 season with USA Hockey because players will be unable to register without entering a valid 2020-21 USA Hockey number. If you have not already obtained a 2020-21 USA Hockey membership, CLICK HERE to register with USA Hockey.
Although walkup registrations are welcome, the cost is $5.00 more than online registration and will take additional time to complete. Walkup registrants must bring a printed copy of the players 2020-21 USA Hockey membership in order to participate in the tryout.
Check-In will begin 45 minutes prior to the posted tryout time.
Players should bring both a light and dark jersey, with name on the jersey.
Once the tryout is concluded, those players selected for the team will be posted on a South Rink window facing the lobby. We post this information as soon as possible, but it is not instantaneous.
Players selected for a team, and their parents, will be given directions for completing administrative tasks. Given the preference of not sharing computer equipment, we ask individuals to bring their own tablet or smartphone if possible to complete the electronic contract, which must be completed immediately following the team announcement in order to hold the players spot.
Credit cards and checking/saving account numbers (routing and account number) must be provided as payment of the club fees as part of the contract signing in order to secure player's spot on the team. The only exception to this is if a parent desires to pay in full at the time of signing with an actual check in order to receive a $50 discount.
Uniform fitting, warm up fittings and purchases, and spiritwear fittings will occur at the rink following completion of the electronic contract signing.
When registering for the tryouts, you will be required to provide jersey number preferences (minimum of three and preferred number of five), so be ready with those numbers. Given the need to order jerseys quickly this year because of postponed tryouts and because of the requirement of new jerseys for everyone, we are collecting this information in advance instead of waiting until tryouts are completed.
