Each player from PeeWee and up will need to tryout. The selection of each team is made by the Head Coach. In order to tryout, you will need to register as a member online, obtain your USA Hockey# for 2016-2017, pay your membership fee, and turn in your Consent To Treat, Code of Conduct, and Photo Release forms. You will NOT be required to register and pay any team fees until after tryouts.
The Tryout schedule is as follows:
* aged is determined as the players age on Jan 1st, 2017
If you are unable to make the tryout dates you MUST contact Jody Flaro at 417.712.1021 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an individual evaluation with the Head Coach and/or Director of Coaching at least 2 weeks BEFORE your scheduled tryout so that an individual evaluation can be scheduled.
Players will be permitted to tryout for any older level team. For example a Squirt can tryout for PeeWee, a PeeWee can tryout for Bantam, a Bantam can tryout for Midget Minor, and a Midget Minor can tryout for Midget Major. The team selection will be posted on the SYHA website at exactly 8:00am following the team tryouts. If a players makes a team, that player will not permitted to tryout for another team. For example, if a players tries out for Midget Minor, he/she cannot decide after making the team that they want to play for the Bantam team instead for whatever reason. Players will be required to register online for their team prior to their first practice the week after tryouts.
