As of yesterday, all tryouts have been postponed until a further date. See the message from USA Hockey below:
- Based on the New York State Governmental directives, until further notice all USA Hockey and NYSAHA sanctioned events are postponed, including but not limited to the NYSAHA Annual Meeting and Section Meetings, TRYOUTS, clinics and on-ice and off-ice activities for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons. USA Hockey has authorized its Affiliates, including NYSAHA, to alter tryout dates based non local Governmental directives and other requirements.
- NYSAHA will notify the membership of when tryouts and other sanctioned events may be scheduled.
What does this mean?
Per this directive, any on-ice activities, meetings, etc. are not permitted. NYS has not established when tryouts will be, and probably won’t until USA Hockey sees fit to lift it’s postponement of all hockey activities.
Player Development Camps
On Friday USA Hockey made a decision to cancel the USA Hockey Player Development Camp for 2005 birth year players and New York State has canceled the state camp for 2006 birth year players. At this point, USA Hockey National Festivals have been scheduled for only the 2003 and 2004 birth years. Please see the attached link for more details.
New information will be posted as it becomes available.
