Tryouts for the 2016-2017 Season Run from April 11th - 30th, 2016
All teams will utilize conventional tryouts, where all interested players attend the first tryout and the coach decides who will continue after each skate.
AAA only has one ice slot per skate per team, so all players will attend the first ice slot at the same time.
AA has two 1 hour slots per skate per team, to handle the anticipated numbers. The first two ice slots will be divided alphabetically, where the first slot will have players with the last name starting with A to K in the first hour and players L to Z in the second hour. The coach will still decide who continues after the second skate.
For A tryouts, you attend the hour based on where you live. The West is Rayside, Walden, Dowling and Espanola, while the East is Garson, the Valley, Capreol and Coniston.
AAA Major and Minor Midget will be hosted by Sudbury in 2016-2017 (watch their site for tryout info) and the NCHA will release our players to try out for these teams, but a release is required. NCHA will have Midget " skates/tryouts" to gauge interest & determine number & level of teams. NCHA is working jointly with SMHA to host Midget clubs. More information will soon be posted on both Associations’ websites.
All tryouts are $20 per skate (cash or cheque) to a maximum of $100. Payments made during tryouts for AAA and AA go towards the $100 max.
You DO NOT have to re-register after every tryout, if unsuccessful.
Other important points to note:
All AAA NCHA players should register through our site.
NCHA AAA Midget players do NOT need releases to try out for the joint AAA Midget teams.
NCHA AAA Peewee cuts will be provided release to try out for Sudbury teams, if they so wish.
House league players will need releases from their home associations, but we will have District 2 blank release at the tryouts, so we will be able to fill them out for you.
