Travel - COED

CCYHA travel hockey program provides players with an opportunity to develop in a competitive environment by providing a challenging, fun, athletic team atmosphere that provides lasting benefits to each player. Our goals are to develop its players’ work ethic and character, teach fundamental hockey skills, and promote good sportsmanship. 



The tryout schedule is posted below. This is a tentative schedule and may change due to registration data. Any changes to the schedule will be posted and emailed to participants as soon as possible.

Players should plan on attending every session listed for your particular birth year as your player will have a greater opportunity to make a team if they attend all sessions. However, if a player receives an email from CCYHA that they have been offered a spot on a team, they do not need to attend any other sessions.

Players not selected for the first-picked/AA team will receive an email inviting them to the callback tryouts.

We will be utilizing an email notification system to finalize the roster spots, so please ensure the correct email on file is correct upon registration.  

Our goal is to have ALL team offers completed 24 hours after the last session for that birth year. However, offers can go out as soon as after the first session.

For those birth years with mixed age teams, if there will be another tryout, a call-back email will be sent.

Out of respect for others and the tryout process, it is critical that all players being offered spots keep this information private until the roster is public and final.

If a player is offered a spot on a CCYHA travel team (first picked or second picked), they will immediately have to review the offer and pay the commitment fee to accept your spot.

Commitment fees for players offered spots go towards the player's fees for the new season and are non-refundable. These must be paid 24 hours after roster spot has been offered.

·       Commitment fees for 2014-2010 birth year players will be $300.

·       Commitment fees for 2009 birth year players will be $600.*

·       Commitment fees for Girls teams will be $300.

*Due to changes in the landscape of youth hockey, we want to make sure of the commitment of bantam major (2009) players and their families.

Any commitment fees paid by players to CCYHA and our travel teams are non-refundable.


Our goal is to make the process as stress-free and enjoyable as possible for the players to have a positive experience. Parents can NOT watch tryouts from inside the rink (i.e. parents are not allowed beyond the doors entering the rink).

  4. Players accepting roster spots

CCYHA travel hockey teams have the option to schedule as many non-league games and tournaments as desired. The number of competitive games and amount of travel is up to the coach and the parents. As a general rule, a parent can expect 40 to 65 games of league play, tournaments and non-league games over a six-month season. Teams typically schedule three to seven tournaments a season.


CCYHA 'A' travel teams normally play in the Metro Columbus Hockey League (MCHL).

CCYHA 'AA' travel teams normally play an independent schedule at the appropriate level of competition. 

However, new and different travel league options are evaluated prior to the start of every hockey season.

The exact number of league games will directly correspond to the number of teams registered in each division, ranging from 14 to 30.


All CCYHA travel hockey teams are self funded and self managed fiscally. Each head coach and team treasurer determine their team's fee structure and sets costs for services such as off-ice activities and skills coaches. 

A typical team budget is in the $30,000 - $41,000 range and individual costs may be around $1,700 - $2,600 (fees have been as low as $1,600 and as high as $2,900 per player). 

These costs do NOT include jerseys, equipment or travel-related expenses such as gas, food, lodging, etc. which are paid separately by each player. Teams may participate in fundraising activities which must be approved by CCYHA.

CCYHA provides travel hockey teams with ice scheduling, team apparel ordering, referee scheduling, billing and registration services. CCYHA charges each team a administration fee to help cover the costs and time to provide these services to teams under the CCYHA charter.  


Players in this program must purchase organizations home and away jerseys and socks from the CCYHA vendor. These costs are not included in the team fees and must be paid by each family upon ordering. Ordering is done immediately after tryouts in addition to other items such as warmups.


CCYHA values the relationship with Columbus Blue Jackets and our travel teams are branded as the CCYHA Blue Jackets. As such, certain items must match the designs of the Columbus Blue Jackets and include CCYHA designation. 

Helmets must be navy blue. If used, helmet stickers should be consistent for the entire team and match the scheme of the Columbus Blue Jackets. 

Hockey Pants must be red (can be black pants with a red ‘shell’).

Hockey Gloves can be any combination of red, white, blue and/or black. 


If a qualified parent head coach is not an option, certain teams may be run by a paid professional coach. The team is responsible for compensating coach fees for practices and games and for compensating the coach's food, lodging and transportation fees for away games.

Head Coaches (typically parent coaches) have the option of hiring skill coaches who are compensated by the team. This person is in charge of preparing and running team practices in conjunction with the head Coach. 

In the event a family or a parental relationship exists within the team, the coach’s food, lodging, and transportation fees shall not be the obligation of the team unless decided otherwise by all parents of the team. Teams budget one hotel room for each tournament with the understanding that many tournaments will have complimentary rooms which the should receive.


Email and your questions will be answered or directed to the appropriate person.
