Tryout Location

Travel Team Coaching

Each team will be coached primarily by parent coaches, avoiding additional costs for travel, per diem, or other required staffing expenses. Understanding the importance of unrelated, high level coaching we are also pursuing the potential of a consulting assistant coach to augment programs, which would increase our registration fee per player if this were to materialize. Coaching rosters will be announced at tryouts for each team.


Tryout and Program Costs

The cost of tryouts will be $40 per player to cover ice time and administrative costs.  Teams will be selected by independent evaluators, however input will be given by on ice representatives as well.  The Wyoming Cutthroats intend to field highly competitive teams made of players with a high skill level, however attitude, effort, and respect will also be taken into consideration.  

The cost for each team for the season will be $550, an additional cost for a jersey and socks will be $100 if the player does not already own one. Returning players will be able to use last season's jersey and keep their number. If your player is selected a $250 deposit is due on Sunday, August 18th to hold their roster spot. The costs will cover fees for the following schedule:


4 Practice sessions held at the at Casper Ice Arena

September 7th-8th

September 21st-22nd

October 5th-6th

October 12th-13th


4 Tournaments (these have been identified and are anticipated, however may be subject to change)

Pioneer Classic - Denver - October 18th-20th, 2019

Rocky Mountain Regional Silver Sticks - November 26th-December 1st, 2019

Vegas Confetti Cup - December 27th-29th, 2019

Littleton President's Day Tournament - February 13th-17th, 2020


A 5th tournament will be added for any team advancing to the International Silver Sticks tournament with an allocated cost added to the $550 registration cost. We further intend to have a practice session at the tournament location either the night before or day of our first scheduled game. The registration fees cover only the on ice costs associated with playing for the Wyoming Cutthroats. All travel, accommodation, and meals are the responsibility of the player/family.  


Please keep in mind a commitment to the Wyoming Cutthroats travel team is a commitment to each player and each family investing their time, money, and resources to this experience.  Having a player or family that is not fully invested and committed to the team is a detriment to the program, but also a burden on all of those who are fully committed to the team.  If you intend to commit to another team over and above the Wyoming Cutthroats we wish you success and all the best, but ask that you not take a spot away from a player willing and wanting to fully commit to the Cutthroats.  We fully expect each player selected to attend each practice session and each tournament.  We are fully aware that injuries occur and unexpected family and personal events may happen as well, but a known commitment to another team or another opportunity is not a valid reason to miss any practices or tournaments.  Please know your commitment level, Wyoming Cutthroats is a great opportunity for these players to play at a high level, gain positive experiences, new friends, and have a lot of fun. We just ask that you commit fully to the team for the sake of all involved.


Tryout Registration

Below is the registration form for the 12U and 14U team tryouts.  On the registration form we do ask if your player would be willing to play on a B team, if so selected.  This would only be if we have enough players trying out and we feel we could field a second team level.  Do know that we intend to fill the "A" team first, so indicating your player is willing to play on a "B" team will not impact the selection process, but will potentially give players who do not make the "A" team a travel team to compete on if we feel it is a feasible option.  

Please complete and submit the registration form via email or regular post to Chad Forsman as listed below. Payment can be made in Casper at the August tryout weekend.
