Storm Squad Tryouts

The Carolina Hurricanes will hold tryouts for the 2017-18 Pepsi Storm Squad on Monday, Aug. 28 and Wednesday, Aug. 30.

The Pepsi Storm Squad, the Carolina Hurricanes' fan development team, consists of young men and women who serve as ambassadors at all Canes home hockey games and in the community. Members of the Storm Squad entertain, interact with and motivate thousands of fans each game, while also making an impact in the community by representing the Hurricanes at over 100 community events every year.

WHERE: The tryouts will take place at PNC Arena, located at 1400 Edwards Mill Road, Raleigh, N.C.

HOW TO SIGN UP FOR TRYOUTS: Fill out the registration form here. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older. The week before tryouts, we will send out a schedule for the first day.

WHAT TO BRING: Simply bring a working knowledge of your schedule and availability, a resume and $10 for the registration fee. Individuals that make the team are required to be available for 80% of games and events.

WHAT TO WEAR: For day one, wear clothes that represent you and your personality the best. In the past, individuals have worn anything from a t-shirt and jeans to business casual. We want you to be yourself!

WHAT TRYOUTS WILL INCLUDE: The tryouts will include a series of Q&A's, group tasks and other activities that test the participant's personality, enthusiasm, work ethic, team work and other variables important to being a member of the Pepsi Storm Squad. Final members are selected based on a wide range of job skills including their personality, interpersonal skills, energy, customer relations skills, work ethic and athleticism.

DO I HAVE TO BE AT EACH DAY OF TRYOUTS? Yes. For the first day you will only be there for an assigned time within the five-hour period. Your assigned time will be set the week before tryouts. For day two, you will need to be there the entire time.

Pepsi Storm Squad members must have high availability for Hurricanes home games and be able to work scheduled promotions and community events on select nights and weekends throughout the year. Commitment to the team extends from preseason games in September to the following August. While availability is key, scheduling is very flexible and works well with full-time jobs or school schedules.
