Wheeling Nailers Tryout Camp

Do you think you have what it takes to be a member of the Wheeling Nailers? Here is your chance to lace up the skates, put on the jersey, and show us what you can do! We will be hosting a Free Agent Tryout Camp prior to our main preseason camp.

The Free Agent Tryout Camp will be held on July 22-23, 2017 at the Toyota SportsPlex in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania - the official home of the reigning Macgregor Kilpatrick Trophy Champion Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. The cost of the camp will be $350 per player (paid upon registration & non-refundable), which includes one practice session and three scrimmage sessions on the ice, a free agent tryout camp jersey, a Nailers hat, two meals provided by the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins team chef, and an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Toyota SportsPlex.

This is an opportunity to join the back-to-back Stanley Cup Champions organization. A minimum of three players will be invited to the Wheeling Nailers Main Training Camp in October. During the 2016-17 season, 17 Wheeling Nailers players were promoted to the American Hockey League.

To sign up for the camp, please fill out the attached order form.


The Wheeling Nailers have the right to make the final decision on the Free Agent Tryout Camp roster based on number of players signed up at each position. Final camp information with hotel options and itinerary will be sent after the registration period is complete. Each player MUST have a full set of equipment, including a mouth guard and a helmet with a visor. You will not be permitted on the ice if you do not have these. All players must have proof of their own health insurance before signing up (NOTE TO CANADIANS: Must have a valid US health insurance carrier in the US for this camp).
