WHAT IS ROSTERED SELECT
Rostered Select (RS) hockey is a bridge between house league hockey and a more competitive level of hockey (MD, A, AA & AAA). All house league players are invited to try out for the RS team for their particular age group. If a player is chosen, and agrees to join the RS team, the player still plays with their house league team as well as the RS team. These 2 teams run independently of each other. The RS team will play against neighboring towns' RS teams and may also play in up to 3 tournaments throughout the season. There is an additional cost for joining a RS team, although the cost is not as great as it is for a Representative team, parents should be prepared to pay approximately $500 to as much as $1000 per player in addition to the WSMHA registration fee. Those amounts fluctuate depending on team fundraising efforts, sponsorships, etc. As with REP teams, the head coach and team manager will provide a budget for expected team finances at the beginning of the season, and the team may acquire sponsorship or organize fundraising events to offset the team expenses.
WHO CAN PLAY ROSTERED SELECT
In order to attend a RS try out, the player must be registered with the WSMHA. If you live outside the WSMHA boundaries, you must check with the hockey office to ensure eligibility. The RS head coach will select their team from those players that attend the try out.
All players that are selected for a RS team must attend their house league practices and games in addition to their RS practices and games. House league is a prerequisite of RS and as such takes precedence over Rostered Select.
