Tryout Guidelines/Procedures:

Check-in occurs in the Rink 3 Lobby.

Please arrive at least 45 minutes early to check-in, pick up your numbered penny, and provide time for your player to dress.  The locker room assignments will be provided during check-in.  Locker room supervisors will be present.

*All parents, guardians, and friends are advised to stay out of the locker room area unless Squirts need help tying skates.

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, competiveness, and 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:

In the event a player is injured and cannot participate in the tryout process, the player must provide a written Doctors excuse.  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 2017-2018 Coaching Committee.  

Selection of A Teams

The selection of A Team members will be done after the second tryout date.  Rosters will be posted on the GBAYHA Website after 6 pm on the day following tryouts (Wednesday, October 4).   

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 (Wednesday October 11). 

Grievance Process

Any parent that has concerns about the tryout process or results should submit those concerns in writing to GBAYHA Coaching Committee or email the Committee Chair listed on this webpage.
