The Bears will be fielding the following teams for the 2018-2019 season and will participate in the Hudson Valley Hockey League (HVHL):

 

1. Squirt A, A1, & B (2008 & 2009)

2. Pee Wee A (TB) & B (2006 & 2007)

3. Bantam A (TB) & B (2004 & 2005)

4. 16U and/or 18U (depending on the numbers) (2000 - 2003)

 

(TB) Tournament bound means that team participating in the Hudson Valley Hockey League is eligible to qualify for the New York State Tournament played in Buffalo in March.  The organization goal is to have TB teams where they will be able to compete competitively to achieve 1 of the 2 spots to represent the East Region.  If the Board feels that a TB team is not viable then it will place that team in the most competitive bracket within HVHL.

 

The BKHA tryout fee structure for 2018 - 2019 season is as follows: The fee will be $225.00 with a late fee of $25.00 after March 20, 2018 and will have two components:

 

1. $75.00 of the fee will be non-refundable.

2. $150.00 of the fee will be:

a. Credited toward the 2018 - 2019 season fee if the player is offered a spot on a team

and accepts.

b. Forfeited if the player is offered a spot on a team and declines.

c. Forfeited if the player participates in any portion of the tryout process and withdraws       prior to the selection meeting.

d. Returned by check if the player is not offered a spot on a team.

 

In terms of how the teams are selected, the Bears use a broad in-house group approach to picking the teams.

 

The Tryout process consists of scrimmage sessions for both current BKHA players and any other outside participants.

 

The team selection process consists of the Year-end Player reviews for current Bears as well as the tryout scrimmages. Each evaluator uses a standard form on which player’s skills and abilities are evaluated and ranked.

 

As evaluators, at each level and for each team, we have our current Head coaches, assistant coaches and independent personnel participate in player evaluations.  At the end of the tryout process these same evaluators will meet to select rosters for the 2018 - 2019 season.

 

The Bears reserve the right to hold up to 4 roster spots open on the A teams, to provide an opportunity for ANY player who significantly improves over the summer months to move up. These team spots will be filled by or about mid-October by decision of the respective coaching staff and the Board.

 

Team rosters will consist of no more than 15 skaters and 2 goalies for each team. This does not mean that each team will have the maximum number of 15 skaters or 2 goalies on each team.

 

Players will be notified as follows:

 

All “A” team members will be notified by e-mail 24 hours after the selection process. Those players will have 24 hours after those e-mails are sent to accept their spot with the team. Acceptance requires a deposit of half the tuition fee paid by either credit card or check. If by check, then arrangement will be made to meet a Board Member within this 24-hour period.

 

All “B” team members will be notified by e-mail 48 hours after the selection process. Those players will have 24 hours after those e-mails are sent to accept their spot with the team. Acceptance requires a deposit of half the tuition fee paid by either credit card or check. If by check, then arrangement will be made to meet a Board Member within this 24-hour period.

 

All wait list players will be notified by e-mail 72 hours after the selection process. If players on one of the two teams mentioned above decline their spot, then BKHA Board will notify the potential wait list player of a spot and then they will have 24 hours to accept that spot. Acceptance requires a deposit of half the tuition fee paid by either credit card or check. If by check, then arrangement will be made to meet a Board Member within this 24-hour period.
