Team Scotland, the Women’s National Team, is up and running and ready for skaters to try out to represent their country at the 2014 World Cup in Dallas, Texas (and potentially other events).
If you’d like to try out, there are two sessions being held:
Sunday 24th November – Grangemouth Sports Complex, Abbots Road, Grangemouth, FK3 8JB – 13:00 – 16:30
Saturday 7th December – Dundee International Sports Complex, Mains Loan, Dundee, DD4 7AA – 13:00 -16:00
The tryouts will be part drills part scrimmage and will be filmed for selection purposes. Those attending are asked to bring both a black and white scrim shirt, without league/team logos on it. This is a UKRDA guideline on tryout kit, to ensure impartiality on behalf of the selectors.
Eligibility for tryouts is dependant on possession of a British Passport. You are eligible to try out for Team Scotland in particular if you, or at least one parent or grandparent, were born in Scotland, or you are a current resident in Scotland with 4 or more years’ residency. There are no requirements on membership of particular teams. Full details are available here: http://ukrda.org.uk/?p=567
