Important notes:

Each player is required to have a current USA HOCKEY number valid for the 2020-21 season prior to CAHA tryouts. Numbers for the 2021-2022 season will be available from USA Hockey on April 1. https://www.usahockey.com/membership

Your account must have a zero balance before you will be permitted to register.  

CAHA strongly encourages all parents who have kids trying out for travel hockey to visit the CAHA website – www.cahahockey.com and review the information under “Travel Hockey.” While each team is slightly different, there are some basic expectations that are laid out here so parents understand the commitment level prior to accepting a spot on a team. 

All further communication about travel tryouts will be sent to the email that is provided upon registration for tryouts. Information about tryouts and updates can be found on the CAHA website for 2021-2022 Travel Tryouts. 

Thank you,

CAHA Travel Committee
