NRPs for AA/A Tryouts and Permission to Skate Forms for AAA Tryouts

Tryouts for all centers will not begin until the conclusion of the OHF Championships for the 2014-2015 season. AAA Tryouts cannot start until April 15th, 2015. AA & A tryouts cannot start until AAA are finished. 

Every player Peewee age and up is eligible to try out for an AA or an A team nearest his/her home. Player requests a Non-Resident Passport (NRP) from their Home Centre if they wish to tryout for either AA or A hockey. The player under NO circumstances is permitted to try out for both. If the player is wishing to attend a “AAA Zone” tryout you will need to request a Permission to Skate. Both requests can be sent to [email protected]

The Process:
Player requests a “Permission to Skate Form” if they wish to tryout for AAA hockey.
Player requests a NRP if they wish to tryout for either AA or A hockey.
The Home Centre will determine the player’s closest centre for AA Hockey or for A hockey.

All requests can be emailed to [email protected] the email MUST include the name of player, address, date of birth and you will indicate if he/she chooses AA or A. The NRP needs to be physically picked up while the PTS form can be emailed.

Please Note:

THE NRP PASSPORT IS NOT A PLAYER RELEASE NOR IS IT A “AAA” PERMISSION TO TRYOUT FORM. Non-Resident Passports are the “new kid in town”. These forms are very simple numbered forms 8 “ X 5.5”. There are three copies to a form and we complete them with name of player, date of birth, team we are giving you permission to skate with, our name, title and date. When EMHA completes the NRP passport, they keep the top copy and give the other two to the player.

Players can try out at AAA but this is not mandatory. Players can tryout at AA OR A (not both) and if they are not offered a spot on the AA or A team they return home. The AA or A team is allowed to only accept 3 NRP players. The player can not tryout for another AA or A team if cut.

The EMHA is a compassionate organization but we are all persons with a great many things to look after aside from your child’s hockey aspirations outside our organization. Please make every effort to get the request for forms in as soon as possible.

Thank you and good luck,

Tiffany Hart
