Now apparently the youth hockey world has followed suit. Granted being a new-ish hockey parent we haven't experienced too many tryouts that haven't resulted in a slot offered. However with 3 tryouts this year we were bound to encounter at least one.
Hence the email we received about a week after my goalie's first tryout. It wasn't as though it was a surprise. We were told after the 2 day event that they were "solid" with another goalie. Hmm ok. As much as I appreciated the ice time and pucks flying at her to quote Adam Sandler that information might have been helpful YESTERDAY! Or at least before I paid $60 and drove like a maniac each day to get her there. For a team that she was never going to make and for an email that was a week past due. Thank goodness we weren't holding our breath or sitting on pins and needles. My behind would be sore and blue right about now.
Am I being snarky? Yeah maybe a little bit. I do that with writer rejections too. I care too much I guess.
Either that or tryouts just make me cranky.
