Trying out for the 2024 Teams
The identification process has already started. A summer evaluation was held in Aberdeen in August. A Christmas Combine will be held to further evaluate players for the two teams. The sessions will be held in Southey (Dec 30) and Regina (Dec 31). In addition to this evaluation, the Brick management team and network of contacts will be attending a number of U11 tournaments over the course of the winter to determine both roster spots and a final evaluation list. The process will conclude with an final evaluation and training camp in early April 2024. More information will come out in the near future with specific plans.
