Dear TAHA Members,

We have received the attached guidance from NYSAHA regarding tryouts and sign ups for the 2020-21 season.  In summary:

  1. At this point in time there will be no tryouts for any NYS hockey teams.
  2. Starting June 1st any players interested in playing for TAHA at the 14u and older divisions in the 2020-21 season should indicate their interest using the TRY OUT LINK and pay the $40 fee.
  3. Starting June 11th any players interested in playing for TAHA at the 10u and 12u divisions in the 2020-21 season should indicate their interest using the TRY OUT LINK and pay the $40 fee.
    1. Players from other associations that previously signed up for tryouts (pre pandemic) will be contacted to assess willingness to be assigned to a TAHA team for the 2020-21 season.
    2. Players that registered prior to 5/28/20 should contact TAHA President at if you would like to indicate a preferred player position.
  4. 8U registrations will occur later in the summer, in usual fashion.
  5. In the TRY OUT link, you will indicate what level of play and position you are interested in signing your player up for. 
  6. Starting June 15th, TAHA will begin to review the sign-up list and separate them by age/team interest and share with the respective head coach.
  7. Coaches will select some or all interested players to develop rosters.  
    1. Not all roster spots will necessarily be filled through this process.
    2. If you are not offered a roster spot on the team of your choice you will be contacted to assess your interest in another TAHA team.
    3. Developed rosters will be frozen on July 1st and sent to NYSAHA by July 15th  as required.
      1. Once on a roster no cuts will be made, or releases granted
      2. Once on a roster no refunds will be granted unless due to financial hardship and then the player cannot move to another tournament bound or travel team.
    4. If roster spots remain open after this initial sign up process players may be added at a later date
      1. There may be an opportunity for a supplemental tryout session  for any remaining non-rostered players once we reach phase 4 of NYS re-opening plan but timing and structure of that is still TBD.
  8. Any player that does not owe TAHA any monies from the previous season will be considered released per NYSAHA instruction effective May 30th WITHOUT a formal release completed.  If you want to sign up to play for another association for the 2020-21 season, you do not need a release document from TAHA.
  9. We plan to host wrap/high school friendly teams and develop programming that as closely resembles a normal season as possible, but all of this will hinge on NYS re-opening phases and the timeline dictated.  Please know there is the possibility of adjustments to programming along the way.
