RE: Indefinite Postponement of Youth and Girls Tryouts
Please be advised, in light of the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the extension of nationwide social distancing guidelines through April 30th, and other standing mandates issued by the States of Delaware, New Jersey and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Atlantic Amateur Hockey Association (AAHA) has indefinitely postponed all tryouts and/or related contracting for the 2020-21 regular season teams, for all youth and girls age levels and roster classifications.
Pursuant to USA Hockey and AAHA Rules, should any activity occur that can be construed as a violation or deemed to be an effort to contravene the indefinite postponement of the 2020-21 season tryouts and/ or related contracting, the violating club or association shall be subject disciplinary actions that include, but not limited to; ineligibility for post-season District and National Tournament competition, or suspension from all AAHA sanctioned activities.
As circumstances evolve, we will post the latest information on our website at www.atlantic-district.org. Please direct additional questions to your current organization.
We are all looking forward to normalcy and return to a routine that includes hockey as well as other activities that we enjoy. I hope you remain optimistic, patient and most of all, healthy. We are all in this together.
