McKinney High School Tryouts

The McKinney ISD high school teams begin their quest for a State Championship repeat with tryouts on August 6, 2015 at 6:15 p.m. at the McKinney StarCenter. Anyone who is unable to attend the August 6th tryout and that did not attend the pre-tryout skate should contact Lucas Reid at lreid@dallasstars.com to arrange a time to be evaluated. 

We anticipate having the following three teams:

Varsity Gold - Head Coach Cary Archibald

2nd Team (we anticipate this team being Varsity Silver) - Head Coach Lucas Reid

3rd Team (likely JV Silver) - Head Coach Maciej Michalik

All McKinney ISD students in 8th through 12th grade in 2015-16 (plus 7th graders who are a 2002 birthyear) are eligible to tryout, plus any kid in another district previously assigned to MIHC by the league during a fall season.  

Any player who resides in a district without a school hockey team, must apply and attend the League's open tryout, which is on August 20th at 6:45 p.m. in Farmers Branch.

Sign up for tryouts by clicking here

Financial Scholarships: Very limited financial scholarships are available. To be eligible, you must submit out an application and submit it either before tryouts (email to jayeray@tx.rr.com) or at the tryouts. Click here for the application. 

Fees: The anticipated teams fees for skaters this year are: 

$2,000 credit card or $1,950 cash/check (cash discount) for Varsity Gold

$1,950 credit card or $1,900 cash/check (cash discount) for Team 2

$1,750 credit card or $1,700 cash/check (cash discount) for Team 3

As in the past, goalies may play for free since no or limited goalie instruction is provided by the club for high school goalies. Goalies are encouraged to utilize the instructions received with their travel clubs or to obtain private instructions from goalie coach Thomas Speer.  

Three payment options are available for skaters: (1) one payment at time of signing; (2) three equal payments (September 15, Nov. 15, Jan. 15); or (3) seven equal monthly payments (August through February).

This amount includes at least 20 on ice practices (could be more), all regular season games (20), any playoff games, and the leveling showcase. Additional fees not necessarily covered include the State Tournament fee and the cost of any playdown games for Varsity Gold (this cost may potentially be covered if sufficient funds are collected), the cost of any optional tournaments (the Stars are hosting a local high school tournament in December after Christmas), the cost of any needed jerseys, and the cost of any travel expenses (for example if the Varsity Gold team returns to Nationals and has to travel to Virginia. Players who have jerseys from prior years are not required to purchase new jerseys. The costs for uniforms components are: $190 for set of home and away jerseys, $45 for breezer shells, and $34 for set of home and away socks.  

Other important dates

Leveling Showcase - September 12-13

Regular Season Begins - October 1st (Varsity) and October 4th (JV)

McKinney Varsity Wins State Championship

State Champions

Congratulations to the McKinney Varsity team for winning the Texas High School State Championship for the blended division.  

The team started the State Tournament out rough, losing to Frisco 5 to 1. That defeat could easily have upended the boys' dreams of winning states. They bounced back in game two, defeating Grapevine/Colleyville 4 to 1. Frisco lost that morning 3 to 2 to Plano West, which helped the team's chances.  

Midway through its final preliminary round game against Plano West, the team learned that Frisco had lost to Grapevine/Colleyville. That loss meant McKinney would advance to the Championship Game with a win or a loss in overtime or a shootout. Plano West did not make it easy, going up 2 nothing on McKinney. Brendon McMahon and Jeff Kavulich scored in the second period to tie it, but Plano West scored a goal with 9:11 left in the third. Just when things looked bleak, Garrett Jackson (with help from Devon Naphan and Kyle Hogue) scored to tie the game with 1:22 left. The boys held on and took the game to overtime and then a shootout. Although they lost in the shootout, it was like a win since it put the team in the Championship Game.

The next day, the team took on Plano West in the Arena at Frisco to the roar of a strong McKinney crowd. The boys fed off of the fans and went up two nothing off of an even strength goal by Brandon Sizemore and a shorthanded goal by Alex Parisi. Plano West scored two powerplay goals to tie the game with 9:31 left in the third. Jim Kavulich scored with 4:48 left in the game to give the team a 3 to 2 lead and the team held on for the win over Plano West, a perennial powerhouse. 

The team advances to its first National Tournament, which will be held March 19-23 in St. Louis, Missouri.
