CSYHA Tryouts - Updates!

By Webmaster, 03/12/20, 2:45PM EDT


Dates pending due to COVID-19 but tryouts are on the way!

--** UPDATE as of 3/26/2020. **--

Due to the current situation across the nation we are all on hold for tryouts until many of the restrictions due to safety reasons are lifted. Once we have information to set those dates when teams can be formed and tryouts performed we will update out community.

As the IcePlex is shut down we cannot hold any events currently, please note that even if the IcePlex was open we could only hold activities for currently registered players, organizations looking to hold events that include someone who may have played for another organization run the risk of fines and they do not want clubs using this down time nationally to be recruiting. 

Please know we are preparing next years registrations, coaching applications, and thinking about team numbers. We certainly hope all of our players return for another great season to come. 

If you are a coach, player, or parent with questions you should email the president at and cc: (we are updating emails for the board members at this time).

At CSYHA we know that each season brings change, this said we are committed to growth.  If you are a coaching looking to put together team or a player looking for a team feel free to contact us.


Thank you, CSYHA!




With the cancellation of the State and National Championships that were just announced by NYSAHA and USA Hockey the end date of the official season remains fluid.  Rest assured that CSYHA has been looking ahead for the 2020-2021 season for the past few months and at our next board meeting we will be discussing the establishment of tryout dates for next years travel team tryouts.  

We are a established Tier II organization and the past years have seen changes locally but hockey is looking up at Center State.  Rest assured that we are making every ever to field as many teams at as many levels as players will support.

This past year was a success for us locally and although we did not have as many teams as we would have liked we had success at all levels we fielded.  Expect tryouts for virtually all levels of play for next year.

As for House hockey, players can begin registering as soon as registration opens (immediately following tryouts) and we plan on fielding teams at the Squirt, Pee Wee, Bantam, and Midget level for all house levels.  We play in the Snowbelt hockey league and work hard to make sure our teams not only do well but have fun.  We realize that having an organization where players want to come to practice and games make all the different.

At the midget level we are looking at 16U and 18U wrap teams for the 2020-2021 season as well as our Snowbelt JAM Championship 18U team is looking to field another team for next year and is considering some summer tournaments open to any USA Hockey registered players.  If you are interested in playing with the 2020-21 team at the 18U level and want information or are interested in playing in potential later spring or summer tournaments please email us at to get added to an email list.

We will post information shortly on next years plans and in the mean time if you have any questions please reach out to us.  For general information email the CSYHA president at the following address or email the 18U midget coach at the email above.

At CSYHA we strive to put the best product we can on the ice and ensure all players have a rewarding experience.  We hope to see you on the ice soon.

Very Respectfully,
