The Rochester Edge holds tryouts each spring for the following season based on the rules set forth by USA Hockey and New York State Amateur Hockey Association.

Watch the pages under the Tryouts tab for the latest information.

A summary of the rules regarding tryout dates as of the 2020-2021 season:

  • 12U and under tryouts may not occur until 48 hours after completion of the last game (youth and girls) of the New York State tournament (on or after 3/24/2020)
  • 14U-19U tryouts may not occur until 48 hours after the completion of the last game (youth and girls) of the youth National Championships (on or after 4/8/2020)
  • Tryout schedule must be advertised ahead of time
  • Online registration may not start until 1 week before scheduled tryouts
  • Girls that are considered 12U and under by birth year are not eligible to participate on 14U or above tournament bound team except if a) there are no 12U or under teams in their home geographic area or b) the intended Tier 2 14u team in their home geographic area needs additional players to meet the roster size recommended by the ADM. In this case, up to three players may be allowed to play "up".

Pertaining to "tryouts" above, this includes any activity that may be construed as tryout/solicitation or recruitment for the following season.

* Players that played for Rochester Edge, Monroe County Youth Hockey, Grizzlies or Perinton Youth Hockey do not need a birth certificate.

** All players are asked to bring a release with them, even if they played for the Rochester Edge, Monroe County, Grizzlies or Perinton team in the prior season.

Players should consult their current organization (web site) for instructions on obtaining a release.

 

A NOTE ON RELEASES

Player releases must be provided by your organization provided you have no outstanding financial or equipment obligations to your current organization. A release is a financial protection for your current organization and is NOT in any way a discretionary item. You do not need "permission" from your organization to be released - it must be provided if you have met all of your obligations.
