Tryouts/ Prospects


Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we are unsure of the tryout dates and times. All information will be posted on our social media when we have an update. For now, please be safe, participate in social distancing, wash your hands and keep practicing hockey!

2019-2020 tryouts

 The Chicago Cougars, Dells Ducks, and Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings of the USPHL Premier Division ( along with the Rochester Vipers and Fort Wayne Spacemen would like to invite you to our tryout on June 29-30th. The USPHL is the largest Junior Hockey league in the United States and led the country in NCAA DIII commitments last year and now includes a "free to play" division similar to the NAHL and USHL, known as the National Collegiate Development Conference (NCDC) increasing more free to play opportunities for players across the country. 


What separates our Tryouts from any other Tryouts is we give you the most value and opportunity as a player. For $59.00, this tryout includes 6 Tier III Junior Teams and 2 Tier II "Free to Play" teams will be there ! 


We would like to invite you to be part of this Junior Tryout & Hockey Education Seminar June 29-30th at the Leafs Ice Centre in West Dundee, IL. Every player attending will have three games and an Education Seminar with our coaches. Unlike other Junior teams who charge over $300, we have kept our fee low enough to cover costs and we don't look at making any money at our tryouts. We aim to educate players and families on Junior hockey and give them an honest tryout and an opportunity to play for any of the teams attending.
