Amalgamation of the 6 municipalities of the Region of Hamilton-Wentworth into the “New” City of Hamilton has not changed the “hockey” boundaries of its residents. The existing OHF residency boundaries are still in effect.

AAA TRYOUTS


Who may tryout?

  • Players who reside within the boundaries of the “former” City of Hamilton.
  • Players who reside within the boundaries of the “former” City of Stoney Creek, Township of Glanbrook, Town of Ancaster, Town of Dundas and Town of Flamborough may tryout for the Hamilton Huskies at the AAA level only with an F1 waiver from their designated AAA center, Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs.
  • Note: Residents of these former cities/towns will not be allowed on the ice without an F1 waiver—the “New” amalgamated City of Hamilton’s boundaries do not apply to hockey tryouts.
  • F1 waivers will be accepted at all age groups at the AAA level tryouts only.
  • Hamilton Huskies AAA teams may sign players who try out with a valid F1 waiver and who also reside within the boundaries of the “New” City of Hamilton
  • Minor Atom AAA tryouts are open only to those born in 2005.  Players born in 2006 or later will not be permitted on the ice to "tryout" nor will they be permitted on the ice "for a skate".  NO EXCEPTIONS.  The Hamilton Huskies Hockey Club has established a "playing up" policy that is open only to those at the Midget level. 

Imports

Effective for the 2014-2015 season, the Hamilton Huskies will not be accepting import players, those who reside outside the amalgamated City of Hamilton, to try out at the 9 to 11 year old AAA age groups. Import players who have a valid OHF waiver will be allowed to try out at the Peewee, Minor Bantam, Bantam and Minor Midget levels only. The exception to this policy will apply to all current imports presently playing with the Hamilton Huskies. Those players will be grandfathered and may continue to try out as long as they have a valid OHF waiver from their home centre and play continuously with a Hamilton Huskies team.

 

F1 Waivers

An F1 Waiver from the Hamilton Huskies Hockey Club will be issued in accordance with Ontario Hockey Federation regulation (AAA Waivers) E31-E45 and the Alliance Hockey policy for F1 Waiver Forms, page 177 of the Alliance Hockey 2013-2014 Handbook.

Players who reside within the boundaries of the “former” City of Hamilton must first register and participate in the AAA tryouts of the Hamilton Huskies Hockey Club. Players who are released during the tryouts are entitled to receive an F1 Waiver.  Players must have a signed release form from the Coach of the respective Hamilton Huskies team to be eligible to receive an F1 Waiver.  No players will be issued an F1 Waiver prior to the April 19th tryout (3rd AAA tryout).

Players who leave the Hamilton Huskies on an F1 Waiver must return to the Hamilton Huskies in their "Minor" year.

AA/A/MD TRYOUTS

 

Who may tryout?

 

  • Players who reside within the boundaries of the “former” City of Hamilton.

For the 2014-2015 season, the Hamilton Huskies AA/A teams will be operating 2 teams at the Bantam and Minor Midget divisions and the Hamilton Huskies MD teams will be operating multiple teams (2, 3 or 4) at all age divisions.  The teams will be designated as Team Red, Team White, etc.  A player chooses where he wants to go for tryout #1.    A player cannot try out for more than one team on the first night of tryouts.

 Any Dundas, Ancaster, Stoney Creek, Flamborough or Glanbrook residents who tried out on an F1 waiver for a Hamilton Huskies AAA team and did not make the AAA team must return to their home center to play AA or A hockey.

SPECIAL NOTICE FOR PLAYERS TRYING OUT FOR MINOR BANTAM AAA / AA / MD
For the upcoming 2014-15 season - players born in 2001

To comply with ALLIANCE Hockey Policy all players entering their Minor Bantam year, the first year where Body Checking is allowed, must attend an Introduction to Body Checking Clinic prior to going on the ice for a competitive level team's tryouts. To accommodate this, a series of clinics have been scheduled prior to tryouts.

Current AAA / AA / MD teams will be scheduled to attend one of these clinics.

Current House League players who are planning to attend AAA / AA tryouts must pre-register for one of the early clinics by contacting the designated person.

Current House League players who are planning to attend MD tryouts must attend the Introduction to Body Checking Clinic scheduled just prior to MD tryouts.  

Please note there will be NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy for players who live within ALLIANCE HOCKY territory and are thus governed by their policies. If a player does not attend an Introduction to Body Checking Clinic they will not be allowed on the ice for tryouts.

Contact information and clinic details will be posted on the Hamilton Huskies Website.
