The second tryout process is defined and regulated under the AA Hockey Model document (see Hockey Alberta www.hockeyalberta.ca Players tab-AA Hockey).
The second tryout process will be facilitated through each AA Hockey League, so it will be key that there is constant communication between the Leagues and their member associations.
Players that are released from their Resident AA Recruitment Area tryouts, and are seeking the second tryout will notify the League that they are interested in the second tryout. The Notice to Try Out form (see www.hockeyalberta.ca Members Tab-Forms-Elite/AA-AA Notice of Tryout) must be completed under the Second Tryout Information Heading area. This requires a signature from the players Resident Minor Hockey Association President, as well as a signature of the Resident AA Association President.
This form should be emailed to the League c/o:
Greg Davenport at firstname.lastname@example.org
The League, in conjunction with the In Need Associations, will then determine which In Need Recruitment Area has been approved for the Second Tryout. It is important to note that at this time the In Need Association has the option to accept the request of Second Tryout or not. If accepted, the player will be contacted by the In Need Association and arrangements made to join their tryout camps. If not accepted, the League may refer the player to another Association if one is available for the second tryout. In no cases will players be eligible for more than two AA tryouts. If released from the second tryout, or if no second tryout is available, the player reverts back to his Home Minor Hockey Association for the 2020-21 season.
