Take Your Shot at Pro Hockey with the Brampton Beast

Dear Prospective Players,

Got What It Takes to Be a Beast?
Got What It Takes to Be a Beast?

Do you think you have what it takes to be a member of the Brampton Beast?

Here is your chance to prove your abilities. We will be hosting an OPEN TRYOUT prior to our main preseason camp.

The OPEN TRYOUT will be held on July 24th, 25th, and 26th at the Powerade Centre in Brampton, Ontario. The cost of the camp will be $275CDN (+ 13% HST) per player (paid upon registration) and will include three separate ice sessions (subject to change). Please note there are no refunds available on registration fees.

Players that earn the right to move on from this camp will be held over to participate in our main training camp taking place in the fall. While we at the Beast realize that there are free agent camps all summer long, if you feel that you are capable of playing professional hockey, this will be your best opportunity.

This is the 3rd year we are hosting a free agent camp and we are anticipating that the camps spots will SELL OUT very quick. We suggest that you sign up quickly as there will only be a limited amount of players attending. There will be a minimum of 2 spots for players to attend our main camp in the fall.

To sign up for the camp, please fill out the order form on the Beast website available here. We look forward to seeing what you can do on the ice this summer!
