OAKmoor Selects Hockey AA / AAA TOURNAMENT TEAMS
Our AAA tournament team program is an integral component of the OAKmoor Sports organization. We take great pride in these teams and run them in the same professional manner as we do our AAA and junior teams. We look for players with a “team first” attitude, discipline, competitive intensity, character and a talent level for our teams.
The makeup of our team is concentrated with players that live within our geographical footprint (Central Plains) but we have increasingly expanded the area from which we draw our players from to include all of the US and Canada. While we still focus on the Des Moines and Plains area, we will go “out of area” to add quality players to our team.
An additional reason for putting these teams together is to give some of the top players in these areas’ new opportunities. Such as participating in some of the top tournaments in North America and against some of the top players from around the world. These teams also provide the players and families the freedom to play with some the players that they would normally be competing against. The players are also exposed to new teaching methods and coaching.
The OAKmoor Selects have many goals for each team. One, and the most important, is for the players and their parents to have am enjoyable, fun filled weekend and a great experience. The players and families that have come with us in the past have had a great time at the rink as well as away from the rink. A close second, is that every player learns something from his coaches and teammates. Another goal is to put together as strong a team as possible and enter them in the top AAA level tournaments offered.
We put together the most competitive team as possible. Our staff scouts youth games each season and our selections are based on ongoing evaluations at those games, our tryouts as well as camps run by the OAKmoor Sports and recommendations we get from trusted, independent sources. We select the players we feel earned an invitation by their level of play. We do not get to see every team or every player, so we choose from the players we see and the ones we feel deserve an invitatation.
We will enter our teams in such tournaments as the Boston Showdown (Marlboro, MA), Toronto Invitational (Toronto, ON), Top Tier (Toronto, ON), PHD Bauer Shootout (Toronto, ON) Warrior Meltdown (Montreal) and the Beantown NAPS (Marlboro, MA) Chi-Town Shuffle (Chicago, IL) Plus Many more!
