Prior to participation, signatures on Codes of Conduct and Parent/Athlete Sudden Cardiac Arrest signature forms will be required. Please watch for e-mails announcing parent meeting for your age division.
Players must originally register with their natural age division. To request an exception for your player to play outside of his/her normal age division, contact [email protected].

PLEASE DON'T WAIT TO REGISTER! Due to league rules and deadlines, the AYHA Board initially sets the number of teams during the summer prior to the season. If your registration takes us beyond the number of pre-set roster spots, your player will automatically be placed on a waiting list. Depending on total numbers and timing, we may be able to form an additional team, or accommodate your player in practice and perhaps limited non-league game play at a reduced fee.
