Travel Tryout Process & Info

General Information:

A.) All tryouts will be held at Webster Ice Arena.
B.) Players should check in at least 45 minutes before start of tryout ice time to complete registration (hand in forms, checks, online registration confirmation email, etc - see below for Items Needed) and be issued a tryout jersey.
C.) It is recommended players attend all tryout dates.
D.) TB Status at the Youth U12, U14, U16, U18 and Girls Teams will be determined based on the quality of the talent after tryouts.

NOTE 1: Players must register for and attend the tryout based on their birth date.  There is a comments field in the online Tryout Registration system for approved Move-ups (see info below for move-up process).

NOTE 2: WNYAHL has removed the exception for Major aged players on Minor teams effective for the 2017-18 season.  If there are not enough Minor aged players at Tryouts and enough interested Major aged players, WYHA will consider forming a Mixed team to replace the Minor team. Not applicable to Girls teams.

Registration is required to participate in tryouts.
The following items must be completed and handed in at Tryout BEFORE players are allowed to skate:

1. (All Players) WYHA Tryout Registration has two options:

  • Option1: See below for document to print, fill out and bring to Tryouts.
  • Option 2: Complete online registration (page down for registration link) and bring a printout of the email confirmation.  This option is required for those wishing to pay by credit card.

2. (All Players) Payment of Tryout & Deposit Fees:

  • Two Checks made out Webster Youth Hockey:
    • Tryout fee of $50 per player.  This fee pays for the tryout ice time.  This fee is non-refundable.
    • $150 deposit required.  The $150 deposit is refundable after House Evaluations complete if the player does not make a team or the team is not formed.  Parents need to explicitly make a request to get a refund as we have no idea if they left or will register for House until August. All refunds are processed at the monthly Officer meetings. See for further info on the deposit refund policy. Travel deposits (online, cash or checks) are automatically moved to Empire House Evaluations so players not making a Travel team should register for House Evaluations and select "pay offline" with a request in the Comments field "transfer deposit from Travel tryouts".
  • Online Registration and payment by Credit Card:
    • Payment by Credit Card is ONLY available online.  Payment by Credit Card will NOT be available at Webster Ice Rink on the night of Tryouts.
    • The only option for Travel & Girls Tryouts Credit Card payment is ONE $200 payment which covers both the $50 Tryout Fee & the $150 Deposit.
    • (New to WYHA) Parents must create a SportNGIN account to register online.  Instructions are below.
    • (Current WYHA players)  Parents must be logged into their SportNGIN account to register online.  Forgotten password instructions are below with the instructions on how to create an account.
    • Note that per NYS Hockey regulations, all organizations may not open online registration until one week prior to the 1st night of tryouts for a team.

3. (If did not play for WYHA in 2016-17) Birth Certificate (or passport) COPY if your child did NOT play for WNY based Travel or Girls TB Team in 2016-17 season.

  • If your child played for an organization NOT in New York, please contact Jeanne Barreca, WYHA Registrar

Bantam Team Update for week of 4/24 tryouts

Given the number of inquiries we have received, we anticipate forming two Bantam teams.  Our goal is to form a U14/Bantam Major TB team (if the talent at the final tryout warrants it) and then a second NTB U14 team or a Bantam Mixed (U13&U14) Team.

We have a couple of coach candidates for the second Bantam team and this coach will be announced after the first U14/Bantam Major team is determined. 4/27 Update: Coach Chad Fikes has agreed to coach this team.
