Try-Out Information 2022-23 Season

Squirt, Pee Wee, Bantam Family Members:

Welcome to another season of Austin Youth Hockey. Wanted to get a little info out to you about try outs and team structure for this year.  

This year we will have a Bantam A Team, Bantam B Team, Pee Wee B Team, Pee Wee C team , Squirt A Team, Squirt B Team and a Squirt C team. Since we will be having multiple teams at each level we will be having a two day tryout.

Tryout dates and times will be:

Sunday October 9 at 5:45 PM Riverside for SQUIRTS

Sunday October 9 at 7:00 PM Riverside for PEE WEES

Sunday October 9 at 8:15 PM Riverside for BANTAMS


Tuesday October 11 at 5:30 PM Riverside for SQUIRTS

Tuesday October 11 at 6:45 PM Riverside for PEE WEES

Tuesday October 11 at 8:00 PM Riverside for BANTAMS

Tryouts this year will be closed to all family and spectators (including LiveBarn). Squirt players parents, one parent/guardian may accompany the player to help them get ready and then will need to leave once they are on the ice. Since tryouts are closed no parents/guardians will be allowed to wait in lobby or anywhere inside arena except for tryout staff designated by President or coaches coordinator. Parents/guardians can come in first day with your child to help them put their tryout number on their helmet with tape provided in lobby. Then you will be asked to leave unless for squirts you can help them get skates on. We would like them to be there 30 mins before tryouts start on first day to allow enough time to get their tryout number assigned to them.  We would like for you to apply number in lobby. We will be assigning light or dark jerseys to the kids to separate. Jerseys provided are checked out and will be returned at end of tryouts. Parents please still plan to be available if we need to contact you if any issues come up.

Goalies that will be trying out will need to notify myself (Dave Anderson coaching coordinator) by email that they will be trying out as full time goalie or part time goalie as soon as possible(BEFORE SHOWING UP TO TRYOUTS). If your child is also interested in trying goalie this year I would also like to be notified so we can pass info on to team coach after tryouts. Full time goalies will be wearing goalie pads for both days of tryouts. Part time goalies will dress and skate as regular skaters both days of tryouts.

If your child us unable to make one or both of tryouts per AYH policy. Coaches coordinator/president needs to receive a written notice (email) as of reason for unable to attend. This must be before tryout session starts.

If you do not want to tryout, please reply by email letting us know you DO NOT intend to tryout. Your players will be placed on the lower level team for their age group.
