Tryouts to enter the MRD draft will be held at Fast Forward Skate Center at 4649 Verona Road, Madison, WI 53711 on Thursday September 7th from 6:30-8:30pm. Doors open at 6:15pm, on skates at 6:30pm. Please do your best to attend this day. If you cannot attend this time, the designated makeup day is Saturday September 9 from 10:00-11:30am. If you absolutely cannot attend either time but still wish to be considered for the draft, email me directly at email@example.com.
After tryouts, there will be a four week period where potential draftees skate with MRD prior to the draft. Practices will be Tuesday 5:30p-7:30p, Thursday 4:30p-6:30p, and Sunday 10:30a-12:30p, starting 9/12 and going through 10/12. The cost of this period will be $40 (same as MRD monthly dues). This will be due on the day of the first practice, 9/12.
Paperwork: If you skated in Level 2 this summer, no need to fill out the same paperwork again. On the day of tryouts there will be one sheet on which everyone will need to sign and print their name. If you were not in Level 2, you will need to fill out all the paperwork, which we will have available the day of.
Tryouts to get into the draft pool will consist of a drill-focused practice (similar to a standard MRD practice) where we will be assessing WFTDA mins and skater safety, as well as a quick <5 min interview portion. The interview portion will be two reps from each home team asking a few questions to take back to the rest of their team to help get to know you all a little better.
Each home team will lead a practice during the draft period as well as have a meet and greet to continue to get to know draft pool skaters. Details on the meet and greets will come later.
Drafted skaters will be announced on Friday October 13 after the four week tryout session.
