Tournament Announcements

REMINDER to all teams

Teams (Travel, House, Girls and RWB/Mite/U8 & U6) attending a Tournament should always check that the TOURNAMENT they are planning on playing in is sanctioned by USA Hockey!  Tournaments in New York State are listed at nyregistrar.com   If Tournament is not in NY or is not listed, always ASK before playing any fees.  If still not sure, contact WYHA Registrar before signing up.

If the Tournament is not SANCTIONED by USA Hockey, your team MAY NOT play in it (no exceptions!).  Sanctions for playing in a non-sanctioned Tournament may include (but are not limited to): Loss of TB status for your team (and possibly all teams at Webster), suspension of Head Coach and Manager, probation or other sanctions for Webster Youth Hockey, any players injured will not be covered by USA Hockey insurance, and possibly other sanctions...   Generally any Tournament that tells you to obtain insurance (AAU or otherwise) is NOT USA Hockey sanctioned so do NOT sign up.

In general, Canadian Tournaments are NOT sanctioned for play by US teams until September 1st.  If considering a summer tournament, make sure you check they are sanctioned by Hockey Canada BEFORE paying the fee.

All teams going to Canada for a single game, weekend of games, or Tournament MUST apply for a Travel Permit.  Please email the WYHA Registrar at least one month in advance!  registrar@wyha.com  

NOTE on Level of Tournaments

Most Tournaments should be considered "TRAVEL" unless they say "HOUSE".  Only Tournaments that say HOUSE A & B and generally only local Tournaments run by Rochester organizations plus Pepsi in Buffalo should be considered true House A & B.

TRAVEL AA, A, B, House Distinctions: Most for profit tournaments (MyHockey, HockeyTime, etc.) and any tournaments in PA, Ohio and Mid-west/mid-Atlantic states will use Travel AA, A, B, House.  Travel AA is for Travel AA TB teams, A is for Travel Major and B is for Travel Minor.  Strong House A teams can be competitive at the Travel B level depending on the Tournament.  Otherwise, House teams should only sign up for HOUSE divisions.  Call the Tournament Director and discuss placement and your concerns!

Buffalo: Travel divisions are WNYAHL compatible.  The House teams are either true "in-house" or play in the MOHL house league.  MOHL team strength varies and there is no A & B.  Teams in MOHL are selected after the Travel teams are picked and it is rare to have more than one or two teams in an age division.

Syracuse: Travel teams play at the AA (Major/Minor) or A (Tier III Mixed) level. There is no formal travel league website so most travel teams are independent except for a few that play in WNYAHL. The House league in Syracuse is SNOWBELT.  Teams in Syracuse are either "Travel" or "Snowbelt".  Snowbelt teams are either RED (very. very strong with no Travel team so this is the top team in their org in the age division), WHITE (similar to our A division) or BLUE (similar to our B division).  NOTE: very good BLUE are A or A- teams, very weak WHITE are more B+.

Albany/North Section: There are a few AAA teams.  Most play either A, B, or C.  A is the TB or top team at the Tier II or Tier III level. B is the kids who could not make the top team generally a mixed group of major/minor aged players. C is everyone else and probably House B level although some teams may be House A level.
