Re: USA Hockey Rule on Tryout dates

I remember wondering last year how Mid Fairfield announced their teams so early last year.

They're not just doing that under the radar are they? Seems a club that's strong Squirt-through-Bantams would risk missing Nationals. Gotta be another loophole somewhere.

Re: USA Hockey Rule on Tryout dates

Not a loophole, just not a rule nationally until this year for national tournament bound teams....which has been left up to the affiliates to enforce.

Re: USA Hockey Rule on Tryout dates

What is the rule?

Re: USA Hockey Rule on Tryout dates

Rule has always been in place. Cannot hold tryouts until after nationals are done.

Re: USA Hockey Rule on Tryout dates

The rule was put in place last summer for the 2017-2018 season. Tryouts need to be 48hrs after last national game.

Re: USA Hockey Rule on Tryout dates

It's a joke - USA Hockey and their rules.

Org's pick and choose what "rules" to follow.

If every org followed the rules, 1/2 the coaches and others wouldn't be on the bench or ice to begin with.

So, when it comes to USA hockey rules - understand that almost any rule has been broken many times.

USA Hockey is another money grab, pure and simple.

Most of these teams have already been picked. This is true especially for the teams that expect to compete for the states. These discussions have been going on behind the scenes for months. With the exception of the final 2 or so spots the teams have been selected. Tryouts are just a formality. This was true before the rule was ever put into place as well as in prior years
