BYHA Announces “A/B” team tryouts/evaluations

BYHA Announces “A/B” team tryouts/evaluations

All players interested in playing on a 10U, 12U, 14U or 18U team (A or B) are encouraged to attend player evaluation/tryout sessions. All sessions are at the Bethlehem YMCA.

Any players attending tryouts that did not play with BYHA in their last season will need to bring an approved NYS Financial Release that they obtained from their previous organization before being allowed on the ice.  Additionally all players will need to provide a valid USA Hockey registration number.  If you have already registered (on-line) with BYHA you do not need to bring the USA Hockey registration number since it was already submitted during the registration process.

A tryout fee of $50 will be collected at the first tryout session.  Players that are trying out for full-time goalies have the tryout fee waived. Players that are not selected for the A team after trying out are encouraged to attend B level evaluations for no additional fee.

Capital District Summer Hockey League

The follwoing information is being set as a courtsey to our memebership.  This is not a BYHA organized or sanctioned event.  You do not need a release to participate.

 

Capital District Summer Hockey League (CDSHL) we are looking forward to another great Summer of hockey. 

 

League play will begin the week of July 9th and run through August.  Games will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings--each team will play 6-8 games including play-offs and Championship games.  Games will be played at Albany County Hockey Facility (ACHF).

 

Players can register as an individual or request either one or two teammates we will do our best to accommodate but cannot guarantee. It enhances the experience and helps build friendships when players have an opportunity to play with players from other local organizations.  We'd like each team to be made up of players from a few of the local youth hockey associations.

  

Coaches please indicate on the registration form if you're interested in coaching, much of the league's success is dependent on quality coaching so please do your best to help the players and provide a positive experience.

 

Goalies--we will limit goaltenders to 2 per team.  If your son or daughter is a goalie please register early to secure a spot.

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me   or 518.281.7837 (call or text).
