2017-18 Season - Coaching Announcements and Team Evaluations

Northern Kentucky Youth Hockey Association (NKYHA)
Spring 2017 Player Evaluations and 2017-18 Coaching Announcements

Several changes are forthcoming for the 2017-18 season.  First, all High School, U14, U12, and U10 players - travel and house/rec* – are encouraged to participate in spring evaluations in order to secure a position on any NKYHA team.  By doing so, NKYHA expects to improve the overall organizational planning, scheduling, and communication with regard to per player fees/costs.  Spring evaluations for all association members is a trend NKYHA is adopting that has been utilized by other local associations.  

*U8 house/rec players will have a separate registration period August 1 – 31 and player evaluations beginning in early October.  

NKYHA Spring Evaluations are scheduled for the weekends of April 29-30 and May 20-22.  A detailed ice schedule and online registration will be released by April 1.  The NKYHA spring evaluation fee is $50 per player and will include 3 on-ice evaluations.  Prospective U18-AA, High School Varsity, and JV players may attend multiple team evaluations. 

All players registering for NKYHA spring evaluations will be required to have a valid 2017-18 USA Hockey registration confirmation number.  USA Hockey Registration opens around April 1 for 2017-18 season.   An announcement/reminder will be sent once USA Hockey registration for the 2017-18 season is available.  With 2017-18 USA Hockey registration complete, players will not have to register again during the fall.

Players are strongly encouraged to attend all evaluations/tryouts.   Parents should contact the Head Coach if an evaluation/tryout is going to be missed.

  • Teams may be eliminated based on the number of players at the tryouts and the overall team skill level.
  • U18-AA, HS-Varsity, JV, U14 Travel, and U10 Travel team offers will be made to players by the Head Coaches of each team within 2-3 days of final tryout.  All team rosters (travel and house/rec) will be posted 2 weeks after the final evaluation/tryout.

All players who accept a position and pay a $300 deposit/commitment fee by Sunday, June 11 will secure a position on a team for the 2017-18 season.  Any player without a paid commitment fee cannot be guaranteed a position on a team for the 2017-18 season.  Any player who does not participate in the Spring evaluations and/or does not pay the commitment fee, but registers in the fall will be wait-listed pending roster availability on a team to accept an additional player.  All late registration players will be assessed the $50 Spring Evaluation fee in addition to registration and jersey fees (if applicable). 

Final team fees and per player cost will be based upon the number of players with commitment fees paid as of June 11, Final per player costs will be communicated to all teams and parents no later than June 30.  If a team does not have enough players and the team is eliminated, the commitment fee can be transferred to another NKYHA team.  Commitment fees are non-refundable. 

Jersey fees for U18-AA, High School Varsity, JV, U14, and U10 Travel/A teams will be due June 20 in order to ensure jerseys are available when the season commences in the fall.     

50% of the player registration fee will be due Sept 1.  75% by October 15.  Paid in full December 1.  Any player not current with payment schedule will be suspended from on-ice participation until account is current or paid in full. 

Several teams are in need of Assistant Coaches and one Head Coach for U12 House/Rec team.  If you are interested volunteering for a team, please contact Marc Webb at or 859-653-0201.
