GHPYH 2018/2019 Tryout Registration

Registration for the 2018-2019 season is now open!

It will remain open from now through March 17, 2018.  All registrations are done online through our website. The tryout registration fee is $100.  This non-refundable fee is due prior to evaluations and will be applied to the 2018-2019 tuition.  Please note that Peewees and Bantams will be asked to list their position preference.  This is not required for Mites and Squirts.

Registration will close on March 17th to allow GHPYH time to determine approximate sizes for each tryout session to allow evaluators to provide the fairest evaluation. Therefore, it's critical to pre-register.

 

Tryouts for the 2018/2019 season will be held on the following Tuesdays and Thursdays in March at the Haverhill High School Veteran’s Rink:

Tuesday March 20, 2018

Midget evaluations will take place in the fall, if necessary. We'll be placing Midget players according to the school that they attend.   However, registration is still required to ensure your place on a team this fall.

We anticipate the above schedule for each age group but may change day of the week based on registration volume at each age group.  Dates and times will be confirmed as we get closer to the tryout dates. 

 

Please continue to check our website for more information as it becomes available. We anticipate the above schedule for each age group but may change the day of the week based on registration volume at each age group.  Dates and times will be confirmed as we get closer to the tryout dates.  

 

Registration for our 2018-2019 Learn to Skate and Learn to play programs will open later this summer.

If your child is trying out as a GOALIE, they will tryout with their assigned age group (Squirt, Peewee, Bantam).  Goalies will be evaluated at the group sessions. Mites cannot tryout for a goalie only position. 

You must register online at our website, www.hpthunder.org and click on the “Register Online” button, or directly by clicking HERE.  The non-refundable cost for registration is $100 BEFORE March 15th, or $125 the 1st day of tryouts.   To ensure we have the appropriate number of players at each tryout, you MUST PRE-REGISTER prior to tryouts.

·         All Levels and Players: please make sure to attend the tryouts at the times assigned for your group. This is established to maintain fairness in the rating process and is not optional.

·         Tryout fees are applied towards your tuition fees for the 2018/2019 league year.

·         Your 2017/2018 League fees must be paid in full to tryout. Please contact the treasurer with questions about your tuition

·         Valid USA Hockey number is required for all programs. You can get your 2018/2019 USA Hockey number after 4/1/18 by visiting www.usahockeyregistration.com.  

·         All Players will be responsible for purchasing Two (2) Jerseys season. Jerseys will be the same as previous years and may be reused, if you desire. Each parent will be responsible for filling out a form on the first night of tryouts. The form will include if you decline to order jerseys or your requested Size, preferred Jersey number (up to 4 numbers may be requested), and players information

NEXT STEPS?

1.    Register your player for his/her specific tryout age group.
