Flagstaff Youth Hockey Association announces 2019-20 tryouts
Flagstaff Youth Hockey Association (FYHA) travel team tryouts are taking place at the end of April.
The organization is restricted this year by the Jay Lively Ice Rink construction closure taking place in May, moving up the traditional tryout window so that they can be completed before Flagstaff schools let out for summer.
Tryouts will be conducted by head coaches of all teams, with all head coaches assisting all other head coaches with evaluations and selections.
“The head coach of a specific team is ultimately responsible for selection of the team, but the input provided from the rest of the FYHA coaching staff will be of great value,” said FYHA registrar Jamie Miele, about the 2019-20 team selection process.
Anticipated teams, depending on tryout attendance, for the 2019-20 season, are two 10U teams, two 12U teams, two 14U teams, one 16U Tier II team and one 18U tournament team (tryouts later this summer).
