WARM-UP SESSIONS

Skater and goaltender warm-up sessions are scheduled throughout September and intended to provide our young athletes an opportunity to get on the ice prior to tryouts.

Sessions will be led by MVIYHA coaching candidates for the upcoming season.  Those interested in leading warm-ups sessions should contact the appropriate traveling coordinator.  Their contact information is listed below.

Most sessions are 60 min , however, some older levels might be scheduled for a 90 min session, and will include edge-work, puck-touches, and scrimmage time.  The potential skill drills for the upcoming tryout sessions will be provided and practiced as well.

Players will be assigned to a specific time block on a given date. We make every attempt to balance the number of skaters at these sessions, so please only have your participant attend the session to which they have been assigned. 

Registration for the warm-up sessions is included the Tryout Registration fee.

PLAYER TRYOUTS

In order to be eligible for an AA/A/B1/B2-level (boys) or an A-level (girls) MVIYHA traveling hockey team, your player must participate in the MVIYHA tryout process.  For more specific information about our program, please see the MVYHA Tryout Manual, attached below.

In order for a player to tryout, he/she must:

  • be registered with USA Hockey 
  • be registered for the 2021-2022 season 
  • be registered for Tryouts 
  • not have an outstanding balance due to MVIYHA from any prior season

The last day to register to be eligible for tryouts for the 2021-2022 season is Tuesday, August 31.  Any players registered after this date will not be eligible for tryouts, and will not be allowed to participate at a traveling team higher than the B-level for girls or the C-level for boys.
