Due to the late planned opening of Mount Vernon (after the 27th) and the continuing Forward Virginia requirement to maintain physical distancing, when practicable, during the conduct of sports, the Club plans to take maximum advantage of the PVAHA guidance for this season that allows for rostering of players without tryouts.
We will conduct a four-step process for registering and rostering players for our CBHL teams. You must register for NVHC CBHL Tryouts prior to being considered for any roster position during any Step. Please register as soon as possible to allow NVHC as much time as possible for thorough decision making.
Step 1 - immediately - We have opened two travel registration options on our website: (a) a no-cost option (titled “Coed > Returning Travel and Spring Select Players”) for players who played on 19/20 Ice Dog CBHL teams or tried out for a Spring Select Team this spring. (b) an option (titled “Coed > Players new to CBHL Travel…”) for players who did not play on a 19/20 Ice Dog CBHL team and did not try out for the Spring Select Team this spring. This includes players who played on an Ice Dog CCHL team in 19/20. These players will pay a $50 non-refundable on-ice tryout fee as part of registration.
19/20 Ice Dog players must register by July 13th to be considered for rostering during Steps 2 or 3. Non-member players must register by July 19th to be considered for rostering during Step 3. Players must register by July 24th to participate in the July 26th on-ice tryout and be considered for rostering during Step 4.
Step 2 - July 13 - CBHL Coed Team roster positions for 19/20 Club members who participated in a travel program or participated in our 2020 Spring Selects tryouts may be offered for the 10U through 16/18U age groups without on-ice tryouts.
Step 3 - July 20 - CBHL Coed Team roster positions for players who did not play on a 19/20 Ice Dog CBHL team and did not participate in our Spring Selects tryouts this spring may be offered for the 10U through 16/18U age groups without on-ice tryouts.
Step 4 - July 26th - on-ice tryouts will be held in Haymarket for players who were not offered a CBHL Coed Team roster position during Steps 2 or 3. More details to follow on the specific time and requirements for this on-ice session.
Given the public health conditions, the status of our partner rinks, and PVAHA Tier II travel guidance, we believe this is the best approach to field competitive teams for the 20/21 season in a timely manner. Details on our roster selection process are listed below:
If an offer is extended and accepted at any point, you will need to register your player for the team offered and pay the monthly travel fee for August.
All roster position offers expire after 72 hours. Expired offers are immediately returned to NVHC to utilize as the club deems necessary.
The CBHL Director has assigned a Lead Coach for each Age Group. Each Lead Coach, under the supervision of the CBHL Director, will assemble a Committee of coaches and individuals who possess specific knowledge of that particular age group.
Committees will review each registered applicant, discuss all appropriate information, and consider offering roster positions without on-ice tryouts. A Committee decision to offer a roster position must be unanimous.
Any Tryout Committee member who is also a parent of an applicant within that specific age group will not receive a vote in regards to their player.
The CBHL Director has final say in all decisions.
Tryout applicants not offered a roster position during Step 2 or Step 3 will be invited to on-ice tryouts, Step 4 (as necessary). On-ice tryouts will apply the same Committee approach applied in Steps 2 and 3 (see above), utilizing information obtained from the on-ice tryout process. Understand that we will follow all facility guidelines regarding distancing, entry and exit points, population limits, etc.
Players not assigned to a Club CBHL Coed Team may register for our CCHL program.
