Player Release

Player Release Procedure                                                  

NYSAHA requires that all players must obtain a financial release from their current association prior to skating in games or practices, or attending tryouts, for a different hockey association. The procedure for players seeking a Player Release from the 2016/17 season will be as follows:

Travel Players:   

· A player requesting a release must make the request via email to their current team manager.

          · The team manager will then verify that the player's financial obligation to     

             HHHA has been fulfilled.

          · The team manager will then forward that request with a confirming email to

               that the player is okay to be released.

          · A signed release will be emailed to the requesting player. 

House Players:

· A player requesting a release must make the request via email to David McDermott, ( ) or Tom Zdrojewski, ( ). No telephone calls.

          · Once verification that the player's financial obligation to HHHA has been confirmed for the 2016/17 season, a signed release will be emailed to the requesting player/parent. 

 

Releases will not be provided unless all financial obligations to HHHA have been fulfilled. No exceptions will be made!

Bantam Birth year 2003 & 2004

There will be an inter-association bantam division for the upcoming 2017/18 season between Hamburg, West Seneca and Cazenovia. Based upon each organizations projected player participants, there should be (6) teams in this new division. Games will be played on Hamburg, West Seneca and Cazenovia ice. We believe this move will help our teams and players to be more competitive and there should be no lopsided games like there were last season.
Regarding checking...checking will stay. Based upon the results of the poll that we conducted and the wishes of the West Seneca and Cazenovia's parents, the majority wants checking to stay...so it will.
          Additionally, for this upcoming season:
                    1) There will be a "select" team formed.
                    2) The three associations have agreed and one of us will host  
                         a tournament for this newly created division.
          Just like our other house divisions, there will be playoffs and championship games in the new division.
          We appreciate your patience in waiting until we could meet and work out the details.
           HHHA feels that this is a great direction to take our bantams.
