Bell Making the Cut
This spring is your shot at the bigs as Bell and the CBC, along with the NHL launch Bell Making the Cut a new reality-type show that will follow the tryout process and the selected players' trips to NHL training camps to showcase their untapped talents.

Your first step to the Big Leagues is the Bell Making the Cut Tryout Challenge - A seven city, coast-to-coast search for the best unsigned hockey players in Canada beginning May 28th in Toronto, Winnipeg, Halifax, Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa and Montreal.

It's a once in a lifetime chance to experience big league drills and test your on-ice skills, with Pro coaches and scouts watching your every move.

Whether you are an elite player who wants to establish yourself as one of Canada's top unsigned hockey players, or a recreational player who enjoys the game and a good skate - Bell Making the Cut Tryout Challenge is for you.

It's an event you'll want to share with your friends, teammates and family, meet Pro scouts and coaches, past NHL® players and show us your best game.

So, sharpen your skates, tape your stick, and join us on the ice for the Bell Making the Cut Tryout Challenge.  It's an opportunity you can't miss.  An experience you'll never forget.

But remember, there's more than bragging rights on the line - attend the Tryout Challenge and you could earn a spot at the Bell Making the Cut Training Camp.

Pro Training Camp.  Taking your game to the next level

For those players who catch the eye of our professional scouting staff at the Tryout Challenges, the journey has just begun!

The top 68 players selected from the Tryout Challenges will receive an invitation to attend an intensive two-week professional Training Camp, run by top coaches, assistant coaches, scouts, trainers and professional support personnel.

Led by two of the greatest coaches in the history of the game, Scotty Bowman and Mike Keenan, the Bell Making the Cut Training Camp is designed to provide a first-class hockey experience for all participants.

At every stage, our coaches and scouts from the NHL®, AHL and European Hockey Leagues will judge the progress of each participant.  As each day passes, decisions will be made.  Some will face disappointment, while others will move closer to the ultimate prize - one of six invitations to an NHL® Training Camp.

   A National Television Event.  A Prime Time Drama

Bell Making the Cut is more than an on-ice event.  It's also a landmark prime-time television series from Tryout Challenges to Training Camp, our cameras will follow our competitors' every move.

Hockey fans across the country will witness a unique behind-the-scenes view of the world of professional hockey.  We will see the elation and the heartbreak as each week we learn who will continue their journey and who will pack their bags for the long trip home.

A landmark television series, Bell Making the Cut premieres this Fall on CBC.
