SCHL Selects

What is SCHL Selects?

SCHL Selects is a tournament team made up of the top talent in the South Coast Hockey League. With a team at each birth year, SCHL Selects provides the best players in the league with an opportunity to play a higher level of hockey at an affordable price, while continuing to play for their regular SCHL team.

We are excited to showcase the talent we have in the SCHL and help our players learn, grow, and play the game of hockey, all while proving town hockey can compete with AA teams across the region.

Everything you need to know


Who is eligible to tryout?

  • Any player currently rostered on only an SCHL team is eligible to tryout. It doesn't matter if you are on an A, B, or C team, we want to see you at tryouts! Dual rostered players that play on other AAA/AA teams are ineligible.

If I make an SCHL Selects team do I stop playing for my full-season team?

  • No! The SCHL Selects season will be supplemental to your full-season SCHL team. You will play on both teams, and if a conflict arises where your SCHL team has a game at the same time as a Selects game, you will have to play in your regular season SCHL game.

How many games do the Select teams play and will there be practices?

  • Each Selects team will play a minimum of 10 games - in tournaments or against AA teams across New England. Practices are not mandatory but can be scheduled on a per team basis.

Tournament Schedule

  • Dec 30-Jan 1: Jingle Bell Skate (Marlborough, MA)
  • Apr 5-7: Ocean State Spring Classic (Providence, RI)
  • Apr 19-21: North American Spring Championship (Attleboro, MA)

How much does it cost?

  • The tryout fee is $40. If you are selected for the team, the tuition will be $300. Tuition will cover tournament fees, and ice costs. If a team has two goalies, each will pay half tuition. Uniforms are an additional fee (~$70) and the players can keep at the end of the season. If you already have an SCHL Selects jersey, you do not need to buy a new one.
  • Players that are selected to join the team as alternates do not have to pay tuition, but they will need to buy a uniform.

How will tryouts work?

  • The players be ran through a series of skill drills. They will then be divided into two teams and will scrimmage for the remainder of the session. SCHL has hired a small group of independent evaluators made up of former professional and college players to decide which players will make the team.
  • After the first tryout, SCHL will release a list of players that have been invited to the Call Back tryout. This smaller pool of players will be split into two teams for a scrimmage. The final team will be decided from the Call Back tryout.

How many players will make the team?

  • Each team will consist of 17 players - 9 forwards, 6 defenseman, 2 goalies.
  • Each team will have 6 alternates - 3 forwards, 2 defenseman, 1 goalie.
