Tryout Registration & Dates

CCYHA travel tryouts will begin the weekend of May 4-5 at the Dublin Chiller. Depending on the skill level and the turn out for all birth years, additional call-back sessions may be required Monday, May 6-Wednesday, May 8 to finalized all “A” teams  (mixed birth year or second picked).  There will not be a separate goalie session.  Goalies will be evaluated during the sessions scheduled below.

We expect registration to open April 1 to coincide with the new USA hockey season.  In order to plan for tryouts, the deadline for registration is April 28 (the system will not accept registration after 11:59 PM on 4/28). There will be no exceptions.  To register, please go to our Registration Page.

Tryout & Commitment Fees

The tryout fee is $100 and is non-refundable once a player has registered. If a player is offered a spot on a CCYHA travel team (first picked or second picked), they will have commitment fee once notified to secure their spot. This commitment fee will go toward the player’s fee for the 2019-2020 season.  

NEW FOR THIS YEAR:  We are going to utilize an email notification system.  There will be no phone calls.  Every player will receive an email notifying them that they have or have not made a team. For those birth years with mixed age teams, there will be another tryout and your email will be inviting you back for that evaluation.

Our goal is to have all offers by the evening of Sunday 5/5 for youth teams and Monday 5/6 for girls teams.  All participants will be notified by Tuesday 5/7 evening.

Since notification will ONLY be through emailing players, you will be asked during the check-in process at tryouts to VERIFY YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION.  


Parent Viewing

Our goal is to make the process as stress-free and enjoyable as possible so the players have a positive experience. We will continue the policy that does not allow parentsto watch tryouts from inside the rink. Parents are welcome to remain in the lobby of the building.
