GCU Men's Hockey Tyout Camp is mandatory for all players looking to play for either our ACHA D1 or D2 team for the 2019-20 season. There is no additional cost for the tryout camp.
For the Saturday 8/29/20 and Sunday 8/30/20 portion of camp all players will be split into 4 teams of at least 2 goalies, 4 defensemen, and 9 forwards. Each team will skate in a 55 minute on-ice scrimmage against one other team during each of these two days. Camp roster size will be reduced down to the top 24 forwards, 12 defensemen, and 4 goalies at the conclusion of the Sunday scrimmages and will play in the Purple vs Black game on Friday 9/4/20.
Note: Players cut after the Sunday scrimmages are still being considered for the D2 team roster.
All players in this camp are being evaluated and considered for the ACHA D1 team first before selecting the D2 team roster from all remaining players after the D1 team roster has been finalized.
Team rosters will be announced as follows: (ACHA D1 Saturday 9/5/20 and ACHA D2 Sunday 9/6/20)
In order to participate all players must be a registered GCU student; complete the Activeworks registration and paid at least the $75 deposit; complete their sports physical, and complete a concussion baseline test with our team Athletic Trainer (only new GCU athletes).
