Open Try-Outs for 2017-2018 Season

 

The Geauga Youth Hockey Association (GYHA) will be holding open tryouts for all of its youth teams at the Mite, Squirt, Pee Wee and Bantam levels for the 2017-2018 season. The tryouts will be held at The Pond Ice Arena at 9999 E.Washington St., Chagrin Falls, OH, 44023.

There will be one (1) “Welcome to GYHA” session for Mites, at a cost of $15 per player. The purpose of this session is to allow prospective new Mite players to experience the level of play at Geauga by playing with returning Mite level players. Later in the summer, during August "Welcome Back" sessions, the Mite players will then be assigned to appropriate level teams.

There will be three (3) one hour tryout sessions for Squirt, Pee Wee and Bantam, at a cost of $45 per player. We reserve the right to schedule additional try-out sessions if deemed necessary. If needed, these sessions would likely be scheduled for the weekend after our main session, times to be determined.

Please register online at www.geaugayouthhockey.com. A completed online registration and the non-refundable tryout registration payment are due prior to your age group’s first tryout session. The tryout registration fee must be paid in full in order to participate in tryouts. GYHA will be providing tryout jerseys for the tryout sessions.
