A valid USA Hockey registration confirmation number is required to register for any THA program.


Evaluation Process
The evaluation process will have several components including skating, skills and scrimmages. The skills component will consist of a series of varied drills designed by the tryout coordinators.  These drills are executed by the on-ice staff, and are intended to focus on different fundamental aspects of ice hockey: skating, shooting, passing, defensive play, offensive play and hockey sense. The drills will allow the evaluators to judge the ability of the players accurately. THA will utilize independent evaluators to help with the selection process.

Extension of Offers.
Offers for a position on a designated team will be extended no later than friday May 24th.  Please remember that THA requires red helmets, red gloves, and red pants or shells.

Receiving An Offer - What's Next?
Players accepting offers will be required to pay a non-refundable commitment fee of $250 - which will go towards their 2019-2020 fees. Parents/Guardians and Players will have 48 hours to accept the position by making their commitment fee payment online at  The acceptance window begins as of the time the email notification is sent or verbal offer is given to the player.
What If A Player Misses A Session? (Illness, injury, ETC.)
You should plan on attending all tryout sessions for your level. The more the evaluators see of you, the better your chance of accurate placement. However, it is understood that problems can arise, and if you find yourself in that position, please contact one of the hockey director or tryout coordinators as soon as possible so we are aware of your absence. The selection will be based on whatever information is available from any sessions that were completed and evaluated. You may email them at
