Team Selection Process, 14U-19U

At 9am on Monday, June 1, our 17/19U Tier 1, 14U Tier 2 and 14U Tier 1 teams will be able to begin signing players for the upcoming season. The process this year will be conducted entirely online. If your player is selected to play for one of these teams, they will be receiving an electronic notification from the Edge org - so please keep an eye on our inbox. Our coaches may select players at any point during the signing period - which extends to June 10. If you receive an invitation, the commitment form and team registration process will be available at the link provided in the e-mail.

If you have any questions, or would like to express interest in playing for one of the teams, please reach out to the Head Coach.

  • 17/19U Tier 1 TB (Coach )
  • 14U Tier 2 TB (Coach )
  • 14U Tier 1 TB (Coach )

At the end of the selection period we will post the team rosters to the Edge website. Note that the end of the signing period does not mean that the rosters of the teams are full. If there are open positions, we will advertise a tryout process for those spots once we have guidance from NYSAHA and USAH about returning to the ice.

We thank you for your patience through these times, and we are all really looking forward to being out there on the ice.

Team Placement and “Tryouts”

 

Dear Girls Hockey Community:

Our New York State Amateur Hockey Association has provided new guidelines for selecting hockey teams during the COVID disruption. The process will be different than we are used to – coaches will be selecting players prior to on-ice tryouts.

 

2002 to 2007 Birth Year Players

Key Dates: June 1 to June 10

Beginning on Monday, June 1, at 9am, Edge coaches will be able to accept player commitments for the following teams:

  • 14U Tier 1 TB (Coach )
  • 14U Tier 2 TB (Coach )
  • 17/19U Tier 1 TB (Coach )

Coaches will be contacting players with invitations to join the teams beginning on June 1, and the invitations are available both to returning Edge players as well as players who participated in other associations during previous seasons.

What Should We Do Now?

Once we are able to open registration, all interested players will be asked to register on the Edge website. In the interim, we ask that existing Edge members update their contact information here, and other families can use the link to receive information updates on girls hockey.

 

2008 to 2011 Birth Year Players

Key Dates: June 11 to June 30

Beginning on Thursday, June 11, at 9am, Edge coaches will be able to accept player commitments for the following teams:

  • 10U Black – WNY League team (Coach )
  • 10U Blue – Empire League team (Coach )
  • 12 Tier 1 TB (Coach )*
  • 12 Tier 2 TB (Coach )*

* Open to select 2010 birth year players

Coaches will be contacting players with invitations to join the teams beginning on June 11. The invitations will be available both to returning Edge players and players who participated in other associations during previous seasons.

What Should We Do Now?

Once we are able to open registration, all interested players will be asked to register on the Edge website. In the interim, we ask that existing Edge members update their contact information here, and other families can use the link to receive information updates on girls hockey.

 

Additional Questions

Keep an eye on our website and our “Tryouts, 2020-21 Season” tab for the most up to date information.

  • Will there be on-ice evaluations?

The coaches may or may not select full-rosters at this time. If and when USAH and NYSAHA permit an on-ice evaluation, that will be used to fill any available spots.

  • Is My Spot on the Team Guaranteed?

Once players have been selected for a team and have returned their commitment forms, they will not be “cut” from a team.
 

  • How Much Money Do We Need Right Now?

The Edge will not be asking players for any financial commitments either at registration or upon acceptance of a team position. Once we have a better understanding of what the seasons will look like, we will put new budgets together and begin to collect.
 

  • Do We Need to Provide a Release Form?

Players will NOT need to provide a release upon the opening of the signing period. NYSAHA has granted a one-time mass-release of all players who have met their financial obligations to their associations.
 

  • What if I do not receive an offer immediately?

Please register on our website to indicate the team you are interested in, and contact the coach of that team.

 

Gazing Ahead to What Hockey Might Look Like

We are forming teams now so we can plan and get guidance. Our best guess is that the seasons will not go off as we had planned back in early spring. Having rosters mostly formed now will allow us to collaboratively plan for what a contingent season will look like.

The Edge program is putting together a two-part plan at the moment. Part one will be our training program, and Part two will be our competitive season program. In part one, we will be putting together an off-ice and on-ice training program that is open to any girls player with commitment flexibility. This program will run until, and if, a “regular-looking” game playing season is permitted. Once our state affiliate and USAH provide guidance on if/when a “regular-looking” season can begin, each of our teams will put together new season plans to best meet their wishes.

Meet Coach Coleman!

12U Tier 1 Edge

We are excited to have Coach Coleman lead our 12U Tier 1 program through the 2020-21 season. Coach Aaron lives in Victor, NY with his wife Jaime, and kids Olivia (10), Ian (8), and Ellie (5). Aaron grew up playing youth hockey in Buffalo for the Buffalo Regals, High School at Canisius, JR “A” hockey for the Niagara Scenics and then Rochester (MN) Mustangs of the USHL. Aaron played college hockey for the Geneseo Ice Knights and was inducted into the Geneseo Sports Hall of Fame.

Coach has had over 25 years of hockey coaching experience at various levels and ages. He has trained and coached under John Christiano, former scout for the Buffalo Sabres and head of New Edge Hockey in Buffalo and Rochester. Aaron has coached all-girls hockey teams for over six years.

“My philosophy is to create an environment where the kids will develop, compete, and have fun at the same time!!! We will have high tempo, fast pace practices, that will mainly focus on skill development and hockey fundamentals. I believe in instilling confidence through positive reinforcement. Players will not be afraid to make mistakes, that is a part of learning and growing. I believe in the value of teaching kids to be great teammates who support each other.”

Edge 19U are Steel City Girls Invitational Champions!!

Over the Presidents Day weekend, the 19U team traveled to Pittsburgh to play in the Steel City Girls Invitational. They completed round robin play with a 3-0-1 record, outscoring their opponents by a 15-4 margin. Their first place record earned them a spot in the championship game against a gritty Princeton Tiger Lilies team. The championship game was an exciting, hard-fought nail biter that had to be decided with a shootout. Rachel Brase stopped all three attempts against her, and Ally Schwind scored the only goal to secure the championship for the Edge. The win was a total team effort as 13 players tallied points over the weekend, led by Holly DeYoung with 5 goals, and Lian Sydorowicz and Erin McCarthy with 7 points each. Rose Quattro also recorded 2 shutouts over the weekend.
