Additional Notes for Spring/Fall 2019 Tryouts

 

  1. The try-out policy is for when try-outs, conditioning skates, etc., can begin.  There is zero requirement that teams must start on this date.  
  2. It is understood that some leagues may still be active after States have been completed.  Please be aware that any player coming to your try-out, conditioning skate, family skate, etc., must have written permission from their coach allowing them to participate if their season is still active.   
  3. Participation in Older Divisions of District or National Championships – 2017-18 Season and Beyond Beginning in the 2017-18 season, no player (youth or girls) 12 years of age or younger (as defined in the age classification chart for the current season) is eligible to play on a team intending or declared to compete in the District or National Championships or playoffs leading thereto. A player 13 years of age or older may play on a youth or girls’ team in an older classification at a District or National Championship Tournament only if the applicable Affiliate’s rules or decisions, and the applicable local program’s rules or decisions, permit that player to do so. (Michigan rules do allow this) A player residing in one Affiliate may not play on a team in an older classification in a different Affiliate unless both the Affiliate where the player resides and the Affiliate where the player desires to play have granted permission to play in an older classification. In the event a youth or girls player has been denied the permission to play in an older classification in the Youth or Girls’ District or National Championships on a team in an Affiliate other than the Affiliate where the player resides, the player may appeal such denial to the National Championship Appeal Committee.
