Tryout Guidelines/Procedures:


Check-in occurs at Lower Entrance at Rink 1.

Please arrive no more than 15 minutes early DRESSED to check-in, pick up your numbered pinny, and proceed to assigned locker room to put on skates, helmet and gloves.  Masks are required while in the rink and locker room. The locker room assignments will be provided during check-in.  Locker room supervisors will be present.  Review all covid guidelines prior to tryouts.

Criteria for Evaluation – all levels

On-Ice assistants will lead players through warm up activities, drills, with a majority of the time spent on scrimmage play.  Players will be evaluated on skating ability, shooting, passing, puck handling, competitiveness, team play and hockey awareness.

Goalies will be given time during the tryout time to show their skills for evaluation.  Due to having more goalies than teams, there may be multiple goalies to any given team.

Excuse due to injury, illness or quarantine:

In the event a player is injured and cannot participate in the tryout process, the player must provide a written Doctor's excuse or other documentation.  The nature of the injury and length of recovery time or restrictions must be reported.


Evaluation Team

Evaluators will be located in the Rink Side Room overlooking Rink 1.  Head Coaches are part of the evaluation process.  The on-ice assistants are not evaluators for that particular level.  The panel of Evaluators are selected by the  Coaching Committee.  

Selection of A Teams

The selection of A Team members will be done after the first tryout date.  Rosters will be posted on the GBAYHA Website after 6 pm on the day following tryouts.   

Selection of B Teams and C Teams

The selection of B and C Team members will be posted on the GBAYHA Website after 6 pm on the day following tryout.
