Tryout Process:

All players must try out at the “AA” level.  If the player is unsuccessful, they are to report to the first scheduled “A” try out.  If a player is offered a spot on a AA team and turns it down, they will be ineligible to attend “A” try outs.


Underage Players (Exceptional Player Status):

Players wishing to tryout for a division above their age category must complete the Underage Player Application form and submit the additional underage tryout fee by March 1st 2024.

To be an exceptional athlete, one must possess not only hockey skills that are so superior to players his own age, but would also be superior to players one year older than his age.

To be approved as an exceptional player, the player must be ranked as the top player in their position for the team in which they are trying out.

Members of the Evaluation Committee will have the final decision for exceptional player status. The NFMHA Board reserves the right to make all final decisions on all player movements.
