2020 Tryouts – FAQ

2020 Tryouts – Frequently Asked Questions

With the recent updates to our Tryout Policy, we’ve had a number of questions from families regarding the tryout process.

As such, we have created a Frequently Asked Questions page related to this year’s tryout process. All of the questions we have received so far have been answered on this page.

If you have a question about tryouts and do not find the information you require on the FAQ page, please submit your question using the link at the bottom of the FAQ page. All relevant new questions (and their corresponding answers) will be added to the FAQ page.

The Panthers System

The Panthers System

As we head into the tryout season KMBA would like to clarify the various levels of play and the overall approach we take to our Panthers Rep and Elite system. We want to ensure everyone understands the Panthers approach so you know what to expect.

There are so many terms thrown around – Tier 1, AA, Elite, Select, ICBA, OBA . . . . and it’s hard to keep track of what they all mean!

As such, we have created a new page on our site to explain The Panthers System. This new page details a number of details about playing as a Panther including our program philosophy, age groups, our affiliate organizations, our levels of competition, and contacts for questions.

2020 8U-18U Tryouts – Register Now!

Registration is NOW OPEN for tryouts for our Kitchener Panthers 2020 Rep teams!

AAA tryouts will take place after Labour Day with AA and A tryouts continuing in October.

New Policies and Procedures

This year, we are introducing a new process for our tryouts including:

  • Taking advantage of our lit diamonds by holding AA and A tryouts in October, thereby allowing players to have a break or an opportunity to participate in our Fall Ball Program
  • Using HitTrax technology to collect unbiased metrics on each player
  • Offering players the option to select the level at which they wish to begin tryouts, thereby providing some families with fewer tryout dates and giving coaches the opportunity to focus on the players who have a desire to play at that specific level
  • Allow players to identify the positions in which they wish to try out

For more details on our current policies and procedures, please see our newly updated Tryout Policy
