The Harmony Hockey Group (HHG) is made up of an ownership team who has over 20 years of experience in owning and operating Tier I and Tier II boys’ and girls’ programs as well high-end junior teams. Its leadership is proved successful when it comes to its mission of placement and development of players.
Tryouts will begin on May 5th at Middletown Sports Complex (MSC). At MSC, future NJ Titans players will be taking part in the new Combine Evaluation format set forth by HHG. Below is the schedule and description of this new, cutting edge way to evaluate ice hockey players.
As you begin to prepare for tryouts, we want to show you our new components and the protocol we will be conducting. We have created a format that will legitimize tryouts for your player’s evaluation. Tryouts will mimic an NHL-style combine with an emphasis on quantifiable data.
There will be 3 parts to our evaluations this year:
1- Every athlete will receive an assessment in our Sports Performance Lab (located in Rink 1).
*Assessment will include aspects like, balance, mobility, quad and hamstring strength, body composition testing, reaction time, etc.
2- Every athlete will complete an on-ice assessment.
*On ice assessment will include things like top end speed with puck and without puck, shot power (MPH).
3- Every athlete will compete in game situations each night of tryouts after the assessments.
Games are played to measure the players’ hockey IQ, skills, and is their time to show us their best assets.
Evaluation Day Process: What should I expect?
Enter through rink 1 to get your temperature taken and continue to walk to rink 2 for your check in process.
*If you are pre-registered: you will be checked in, given a numbered jersey and will be directed to the dressing location.
**If you have not pre-registered: the same procedure will be followed for your check-in however you will be asked to answer a few other identifying questions (position, age, email, etc). Lastly, you will be asked to pay your evaluation fee after at the front desk.
Staff members will indicate where to go for both on-ice & off-ice evaluations.
