What to expect at the Try-outs
At try-outs players will be assessed on their basic skills, fitness and gameplay. It will also give players an opportunity to meet team staff and interact with players from other clubs.

Players selected to the teams and development squads are expected to attend all scheduled practices.

Player’s unable to make the trials will still have the opportunity to be selected, at the discretion of the coaching staff. These players should still fill out the interest from.

Such players must have a reasonable reasons for being unable to attend try-outs and will be evaluated in a way as determined by coaching staff.

What happens after tryouts?
Within 14 days after the tryouts all players will be notified if they made the team(s) or development squad(s). Players from the development squad(s) may be added to the team during the programme duration.
All those selected to the team will be required to pay a €100 deposit by 31/1/23.

As inline hockey or roller sports are not yet recognised by Sport Ireland we currently receive no financial assistance from the government. This means that unfortunately selected players will be responsible for all travel & training costs.

The association is committed to financially assisting as much as possible, but we need to be economically sustainable. However, opportunities will be given for players and the team to organise fundraising events and source sponsorships to ensure this cost is kept to a minimum.

As an outline the European Championships in 2022 cost players €800.
