Use this Registration to request a WHYA Release. This registration allows us to track all release requests per NYSAHA regulations.
The Release Request Registration will open in early March for players in birth years 2008 and younger and in late March for players 2007 and older. 9U to 12U Tryouts may not begin until late March 2020. 13U to 18U & 14U to 19U Girls may not begin until 48 hours after Nationals end in April. Evals for Empire House & RWB/8U (7U to 18U) may not start until after Nationals end.
Parents will be allowed to request releases for their child once their team has completed all games and Tournament. Per NYSAHA regulations, once a player is granted a release, he/she is NO LONGER permitted to participate on a WYHA team. NYSAHA also will not allow any player to change organizations after 2/1/2020. NOTE that WYHA has 10 days to process a Release Request.
Parents wanting a pre-season release or release before their team has completed it's schedule should contact the Registrar at email@example.com to have this registration re-opened. But before doing this, parents should be aware that players are committed for the entire 2019-20 season and WYHA is only obligated to grant releases for extraordinary circumstances (like a parent move).
