Hi All, We hope you & your families are doing well during these trying times. Today the AAHA released a memorandum for the upcoming travel hockey season allowing refundable contracts to be signed without tryouts starting in June. As with the world, nothing these days is normal and team building for the 2020-2021is following that pattern. We at the Bayonne Rangers will be here for our families for the upcoming season. With 30 million plus people unemployed in this country, we will be tailoring our tuition prices and payment terms to make this coming season as affordable & accomodating as we possibly can. Information about the upcoming season will be released shortly. I hope to see everyone back at the rink soon. I know that I am personally rejuvinated after this time off and cant wait to start coaching again!
Tryouts have been delayed due to COVID-19. See below notice from the AAHA.
Most importantly, we hope all our families and friends stay safe and well. We hope to resume normal life including hockey activities as soon as possible.

AAHA ANNOUNCEMENT ON UPCOMING MARCH TRYOUT PERIODS March 14, 2020 Over the last week or so, we have seen local schools, universities, amateur and professional sports and both large and small business take important steps in order to best mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The President of the United States has declared a National Emergency, and the Governors for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, State of New Jersey and Delaware have also issued similar declarations.
The efforts to mitigate large gatherings best serves in the overall wellbeing of our players, coaches, officials, volunteers and their families, therefore, the Atlantic Amateur Hockey Association is postponing all tryouts for the Youth and Girls levels at 12U, 10U and 8U, for both Tier I, Tier II and Independent registration levels. Over the next 48 hours, we will work on establishing new dates for which tryouts and contracting for the aforementioned age levels can be conducted.
We will continue to monitor State and local government directives and provide updates as needed.
