Hockey Alberta Tryout Procedure

Notification Of Try-Out Procedure


Players wishing to try out with a U18 AAA or U18/ U15 AA Team must first complete a Notification to Try Out Form and submit it to their Resident LMHA (the LMHA within whose boundaries the player resides), and the applicable host LMHA of the Team that the player wishes to try-out for. Note - If the team the player is wishing to try out for is hosted within the Player’s Resident LMHA they are not required to submit this form unless they will be looking for a second tryout if released from their first choice try out.  

“AAA” - A player may choose a maximum of two (2) U18 AAA teams to try out for by naming both teams on their Notification to Try Out form. If the player does not make the first team they are trying out for, they have the following options:

  • move onto the second U18 AAA team they requested to try out for by obtaining an Elite Waiver form;
  • return to their Resident LMHA in order to obtain permission to try out for an AA program;
  • return to their Resident LMHA to access other minor hockey programs.

“AA” - A player must try out for the team in the Recruitment Area where the player resides (unless previous approval has been obtained through the Elite Player Movement process). If the player does not make their Resident Recruitment Area team they have the following options:

  • request that the Female Hockey ADM Committee direct them to move onto a second “AA” try out by attaching an Elite Waiver form to their original NTO;
  • return to their Resident LMHA to access other minor hockey programs.

Players will not be afforded the opportunity to access more than two (2) try outs within a specific category of hockey. A player making any designated “AAA” or “AA” Team will receive permission to play for the season and will be returned to her Resident LMHA at the end of the season.
