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 allowance 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:
