Tryout Fees and Registration Dates

The tryout fee will $100 for Youth Teams and $50 for Girls teams.  Players will also need a new USA hockey number for the 2021-2022 season.

The tryout fee is non-refundable once a player has registered.  Please be certain your player wants to play travel hockey at CCYHA.   Exception: If your player did NOT play for AAA during the 2020-2021 season, they should register for CCYHA travel tryouts by the dates mentioned below.  We will refund any player who accepts a position with the Ohio AAA Blue Jackets for the 2021-22 season. 

There will be no walk-up registrations.

Tryouts may be capped due to ice participation limits related to COVID-19.

If payment is not made within 24 hours of registration, that player's registration will be deleted and they will lose their spot.  They will need to re-register.

Registration will open on APRIL 15 and close on April 30.

The ONLY exception to this registration deadline is for players who played for the Ohio AAA Blue Jackets for the 2020-2021 season and do not make the AAA team for the 2021-2022 season.  


Tenative Tryout Schedule and Teams

Schedule information is listed below is TENTATIVE as slots listed below may be altered based upon the number of registrants (e.g. too many players for one sheet of ice, etc.).  The final schedule will announced by May 3.

NOTE:  CCYHA reserves the right to place players in different time slots if needed in order to maintain the guidelines set forth by the state of Ohio.  

We expect to have at least one first picked-AA team in all birth years (2007-2012) and a hope to have a Girls U16 (2005-2006) and Girls U19 (2002-2004).  As in previous years, the FINAL NUMBER OF TEAMS (including second picked-A teams) WILL BE BASED UPON (1) availability of qualified coaching and (2) a combination of the number of qualified/skilled players trying out and accepting positions.  

New this season: Goalies will need to attend the Goalie-Only session AND their birth-year tryouts.

Notification & Commitment Fees

Again, we will be utilizing an email notification system.  There will be no phone calls.  Our goal is to have emails for the first picked (AA) team going out 24 hours after the last session for that birth year; emails to second picked (A) teams will follow.  For those birth years with mixed age teams, if there will be another tryout, a call-back email will be sent.

During the registration process, please make sure your child has an email associated with their profile.

If a player is offered a spot on a CCYHA travel team (first picked or second picked), they will immediately have to pay a commitment fee once notified to secure their spot. This commitment fee will go toward the player’s fee for the 2021-2022 season.  Unpaid commitment fees by the specified time will be considered a declined offer.

Commitment fees for 2012-2008 birth year players will continue to be $300.  

New for this year: Due to changes in the landscape of youth hockey we want to make sure of the commitment of bantam major (2007) players and their families.  Thus, the commitment fee for bantam major players will be $600. Any commitment fees paid by players to CCYHA and our travel teams are non-refundable.


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 parents watch tryouts from inside the rink. 

In addition, in order to maintain rink guidelines due to COVID-19, parents will not be allowed in the facility while the player is on the ice.  We need to be sure the number in the facility is remains low. For the younger birth years that may need assistance tying skates please look to exit the building after they are set.


Head Coaches

The list of coaches and teams will be updated after AAA tryouts and once the number of teams are determined as mentioned above.
