Girls Player Development Guides
The following Girls Player Development Guides are a resource to help explain the Girls Player Development process and what is available to players at each birth year.
XIII. Player Development (Girls)
Each spring the Southeastern District hosts a tryout to select the top players at the 14, 15, 16, and 17 age levels to participate in the USA Hockey National Summer Camps & Festivals. This is an open tryout for all female players meeting the following requirements:
A player must be a US Citizen. (See USA Hockey Annual Guide for more details)
A player must be registered with USA Hockey for the current season and be considered in good financial standing with the Association/Affiliate they are representing.
A player must reside within the Southeastern District (Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas and Florida). A player attending Prep School or playing for another team outside of the Southeastern District but whose parent(s) or legal guardian(s) primary residence (the state in they reside more than 50% of the calendar year) is within the Southeastern District is eligible to tryout for a Southeastern District position.
Combined with the National Camp tryout, the Southeastern District may also hold a tryout for select teams for inter-district competition and/or other USA Hockey sanctioned competitions. All female players meeting the above criteria with the exception of citizenship are allowed to participate in the select team tryout.
The Southeastern District may also hold a tryout for Player Development and Goaltender Camps. Player selection requirements for Camps are the same as set forth for selection to the USA Hockey National Summer Camps. All female players meeting the above criteria with the exception of citizenship are allowed to participate in the select team tryout.
Recruitment of players at any Southeastern District Player Development activity is not permitted. The Southeastern District Player Development Director may elect to make player contact information available upon request following the Southeastern District Player Development Tryout. Southeastern District Coaches and Team Managers selected to participate in any USA Hockey Camp or Festival or in any Southeastern District Camp or Player Development activity should not attempt to recruit players to participate on another team. Questions regarding any allegation of recruitment by any coach or team manager shall be referred to the Southeastern District Director of Player Development.
A no refund policy shall be in place for registration fees paid for the Southeastern District Player Development Tryout. However, requests for refunds due to extenuating circumstances shall be evaluated on a case by case basis.
