AA Second Tryout Request Process


Upon release from your local AA team, players are eligible for a second tryout with another AA team As per the Hockey Alberta AA Model guidelines.  If approved, a player on a second tryout must be evaluated for a minimum of two (2) ice times and it must be determined as to whether or not the player has made the team by October 1st.  Please keep in contact with your local MHA as some associations may form their house teams prior to October 1st.


Should a player choose to pursue a second AA tryout, follow these steps:


  • Second AA tryout requests must go through the NAHL VP Discipline for your respective division. Contact the VP Discipline to inquire if any AA Associations have openings for second tryouts.

U16: Landon Breakwell - 780-686-2628 -

  • If there is opportunity for a second AA tryout, parents must contact their local Minor hockey association to inform them of their intention.
  • The NAHL VP Discipline will review and provide contact information if there is a AA Association/Club available to host you for your second tryout. Contact the 2nd tryout representative to introduce yourself and confirm your placement in an upcoming evaluation session.  They will likely charge you a $50 tryout fee.
  • If you are not successful with your second tryout, you will return to your local minor hockey association.
