SIMSBURY YOUTH HOCKEY ASSOCIATION POLICY FOR PLAYERS NEW TO SYHA
SYHA’s Core Geographic Area for co-ed travel division players (Mite Travel through Bantam) is defined to include the towns of Simsbury, Granby, East Granby, Canton, Bloomfield, Suffield, Burlington, Hartland, Barkhamsted, New Hartford, Colebrook, Winchester, Torrington, and Harwinton. There are no geographic restrictions for Hockey Stars, Mite / Squirt House, Midget, or Girls youth or high school travel teams.
Potential travel team players from outside the Core Geographic Area will be considered Alternate Applicants. Soon after the registration deadline and based on the numbers of registered SYHA players, SYHA will determine the number of teams it will support for each Division for the upcoming season and its ability to accept Alternate Applicants. Decisions regarding the acceptance of Alternate Applicants will be made at the sole discretion of SYHA according to the needs of the program. There is no guarantee that Alternate Applicants will have a spot in SYHA for the upcoming season.
Players wishing to join SYHA from another Connecticut Hockey Conference (CHC) organization will be required to have a "Player Release Form” submitted to the CHC prior to participating in any SYHA on-ice activities. A Player Release Request should be submitted to your prior organizations' Registrar or League President.
SIMSBURY YOUTH HOCKEY ASSOCIATION POLICY REGARDING THE PAYMENT OF REGISTRATION FEES:
The first two payments of a player’s registration fee must be received by SYHA prior to participation in the optional preseason skate or the first day of tryouts for his/her respective division to be eligible to participate in tryouts. The registration partial first installment, the balance of the first installment due by September 15th, and all subsequent installments assessed, whether or not paid, pursuant to the full balance of the annual fees as set by SYHA are non-refundable. Exceptions to this policy may be requested of the Treasurer, the Vice President of On-Ice Operations, and the President in special circumstances such as serious injury. Choosing not to play, or moving to another program do not, in the view of SYHA, qualify for a refund.
Upon being assigned to a team, a player’s final installment payment must be remitted to SYHA no later than November 1st.
A player will be suspended from practices, tournaments or games with his/her team until his/her registration fees are received by SYHA or an acceptable payment plan has been established with the Treasurer in hardship situations.
All applications for financial assistance through the Stover Scholarship Fund must be received by SYHA prior to July 31st.
