Tryout Information

Tryout Arrival

Please plan on having players arrive for check in 45 minutes prior to scheduled start time. Jerseys will be distributed on the first tryout and should be retained by the player. 

All players will check in at the main rink entrance to receive their tryout jerseys. Each player will receive one dark and one light tryout jersey that they will keep for the tryout and for the season. Players should bring both jerseys to ALL tryout sessions.  Players should keep their tryout jerseys after tryouts as many teams will us them for practice jerseys throughout the season.

Tryouts are currently scheduled to begin September 20th, follow the schedule below.  Check back frequently for updates.

Tryout Goal

The goal of the tryout process is to ensure accurate and fair assessment of each player in the AHYHA and to place each and every player on a team with similar skill level.  They AHYHA uses independent evaluators to form player pools and anonymized tryout software to manage player data to ensure the highest level of integrity in team selection.  

Tryout Rules

AHYHA wishes to provide the best environment possible to enable players to perform at their best.  Please help the Association manage to these rules to aid in the tryout process:

  • Parents and spectators are NOT allowed in the arena during tryout events, with the exception of an outside association scrimmage only as permitted by host rink rules. 
  • Only black socks are allowed (previous year’s AHYHA issued socks are acceptable). 
  • No helmet stickers, except AHYHA.

Volunteers not involved in the tryout level being evaluated will be on hand to monitor locker rooms and help players stage for the tryouts.

For complete tryout information, please refer to the AHYHA Policies and Procedures.
