Capital Amateur Hockey Association is pleased to announce the following information related to travel hockey tryouts for the upcoming 2020-2021 Columbus Capitals travel hockey season. Please see below for details about expected teams, registration details and other relevant information.
REGISTRATION OPENS: APRIL 1
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: APRIL 15
The try-out fee is $100.00.
NOTE: Registration will open April 1 and will close April 15, 2020 at 11:59 pm. The ONLY exception to this registration deadline is for players who played for the Ohio AAA Blue Jackets in the current season and do not make the team for the upcoming season. If your player is trying out for AAA but is not a current AAA player, they should register at CAHA by the deadline. We will refund any player who makes AAA but registers at CAHA ahead of time. We ask for registration prior to AAA tryouts so we can plan for the potential number of kids trying out at each birth year.
TRYOUTS will be held Thursday, April 29 – Sunday, May 3.
(NOTE: some mixed birth year A teams may continue tryouts through May 7)
