Tryout Notes:

The reason there are multiple sessions available is just that overall numbers are too big to fit all kids from one age designation on the ice together. We need to break the groups up across multiple ice times, and having you select a level to tryout at is a good place to start.

Using the 12U age group as an example for the 2024-25 year, we have listed:

  • 11U (2013) - this is our highest level team for 2013 birth years, they will compete at competitively appropriate 11U and/or 12U divisions where available. Tryout here if you would like to be considered.
  • 12U A/B (2012-2013) - this group will typically form 2-3 teams across the A and B levels dependent on overall registration numbers. Tryout here if you do not anticipate being in the mix for our highest level teams at your birth year.
  • 12U-Major (2012) - this is our highest overall team at the 12U age designation, the intention is for this team to play in the AA division as well as any other appropriate competition or leagues available. For the most part, this will be a 2012 year team, but 2013 kids are welcome to tryout if they would like to be considered.


These are just starting points for the club to productively assess each age group over a limited amount of tryout days. Once tryouts get started, we may request that kids switch to different ice times as necessary to help finalize decisions as well. We should end up with 4-6 teams across most age groups next year, and we will look to place each of those teams in the appropriate division following the tryouts (AA, A, B, National, American, etc). Please contact Ian McNally with any other questions for now, happy to talk through where to register if you aren't sure!


  • 6U/8U (Mites): As 6U/8U players will develop and grow significantly over the summer, Princeton Jr Tigers do not plan to assign individual teams until we enter the Mite Jamboree later in the fall. All 6U/8U players are re-evaluated over the first few weeks of practice.
  • 16U & 18U: Princeton Jr Tigers field "short season" teams which play a condensed schedule due to high school hockey and academic considerations.


The tryout dates are set by the Atlantic Amateur District Association (AAHA) and apply to all USA Hockey youth programs in the Atlantic District. PJT does not determine the tryout dates nor are we allowed to hold tryout dates prior to these dates.

2024-25 Tryout Dates

Princeton Jr Tigers - Girls

For the 2024-25 season, the Princeton Jr. Tigers is offering stand alone girls teams at the 10U, 12U and 14U age groups. Team levels will be determined after tryouts based on the makeup of the rosters. Part-time players will be considered for each team on an individual basis if rostering with a co-ed team as well. Contact Ian McNally with such requests.

8U Independent Girls Team:

  • PJT plans to have an Independent 8U Girls team that will play a small number of non-league girl’s games and participate in the MAWHA Jamboree but is not part of any league. There is no tryout, the 8U Girls Independent team will be open to all girls on a PJT 6U/8U travel team.
