Storm Squad Tryouts

Storm Squad

The Carolina Hurricanes will hold tryouts for the 2016-17 Storm Squad on Monday, August 29 and Wednesday, August 31.

The 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 (15,000+) each game. The Storm Squad members are ambassadors for the organization at a wide variety of events throughout the community and work with local non-profits and organizations.  In total the team takes part in over 40 games and 100+ events.

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

Applicants must be 18 years of age or older. Final Storm Squad members are selected based on a wide range of job skills including their personality, interpersonal skills, energy, customer relations skills, work ethic, and athleticism.

4:00 - 9:15 P.M.*
