Please purchase a “Travel Tryout Pass” when registering.  Players will not be allowed on the ice without paying this fee. NRP players can pay in cash on the day of the first try-out.  Fee includes AA tryouts (and checking clinic) as well as AE tryouts for those players released from the AA level; goalie evaluations.Any player wishing to tryout for AE must first tryout for our AA teams.

Registration Fees: Registration Fees must also be paid in full or in part prior to attending tryouts. If a payment is not received as listed on the registration page, your player will not be permitted on the ice.  There will be NO EXCEPTIONS.

Tryout Attendance: Players are required to attend as many tryout sessions as possible.  Should a player need to miss a tryout session due another commitment (i.e., school trip), please ensure that you send an email to the head coach so they are aware that the player will not be in attendance.  The email contacts of the coaches will be provided on the website at the start of tryouts.

Player Selection/Release: Player selections and the return player list will be posted on the LMHA website the following day. Players whose name appears on the list are to return to the next tryout.  Those players not on the list have been released from the team. LMHA will be accepting NRP players from eligible surrounding centers.

Player Release and NRP (Non-Residential Player) Cards: Players released from their AA teams are eligible for one NRP Card in order to try out for any A center. This card can only be used to tryout for one A center of their choice. (Applies to Peewee Minor and above only).  If the player is not successful in that tryout, the player must return to his/her home center for the upcoming season. Directions on how to obtain these cards will be provided upon the completion of the LMHA AA tryouts. Cards will only be available to players who have been released by the Head Coach from the team they were trying out for.
