Register for All Tryouts and
14U-16U-18U Get Ready Clinics


The LIAHL has changed tryout procedures to allow all teams to begin their tryouts on dates specified by the NYSHA and USA Hockey.  Tryouts will no longer be “staggered” meaning all Tiers will be permitted to begin their selection process on the same date.

Positions are available at all levels for the best qualified players. 

It is likely that coaches will offer placement on a rolling basis.  

Rosters for the 2024-25 season will be updated as player commitment forms are received so new players are aware any open spots.

Tryouts for 8U, 10U, and 12U teams will start March 5.

Tryouts for 14U - 16U - 18U will start April 9

All LIAHL Player Movement rules will be followed.

Port Washington Skating Center has scheduled Get Ready Clinics for 14U/16U/18U players.
Sessions will be coached by Top Shelf Hockey

Tryout Overview

Tryouts for all teams …especially 8U-10U-12U will be  earlier than ever.  They are no longer “staggered” with separate start dates for different Tiers.  Instead, all teams will be able to sign players be3ginning with March 5 for 8U-10U-12U and April 8 for 14u-16U-18U.

We expect a full slate of teams  from 8U (2017 and 2016 birth years) all the way up to 18U (2008 and 2007 birth years).   We expect to field  two teams at each USA Hockey playing level (except 18U)… a Major team (typically the older, more experienced players) and Minor team (typically the younger, somewhat less experienced players).  We will field just one 18U team that will compete at the Tier II level,  Our “second” teams will be slotted to play at levels appropriate for their ability —either in  Tier III or Milner divisions.

Coaches may elect to notify notify players of their selection at any time during the tryout process.  Players MUST  commit to the team by completing and signing  the NY State Player Commitment form upon selection. .  All rules regarding player movement will be followed, including those of the LIAHL. Click here for player movement rules.  Players requesting releases must fill out the required forms and send them 10 days in advance of any tryout elsewhere.

Below is an overview of teams, potential openings, and links to registration.  Other more general information is at  https://liedge.org/liedge-basic-information/ . If you have any questions, please email office@liedge.org or text 516-445-7907

8U - 10U - 12U (Mite - Squirt - Peewee)

Tryout - Registration

We want players who are eager to learn how to play and are willing to work hard

8U (Mite)

2017-16 birth years

Mite Hockey provides a great chance for players to focus on skill development, while enjoying the chance to play with other motivated players.

Mite Black Team – We expect our core group of 2016 birth year players to return to the Edge to continue their hockey growth.  The team will will play another season of  ”cross-ice” games per USA Hockey protocols.  This will be our 8U II (Mite Black) team.   There will be a several openings for this team. We typically roster 12-14 players including 2 goalies.

Mite White Team -Our  second 8U team (Mite White) will be filled with new travel players,  of mixed 2017 and 2016 birth year players. 12-14 players will be selected to play on this team, including 1-2 goalies.

10U Hockey continues with emphasis on team play and skill development.  After having played  “cross-ice” in Mite travel programs,  players will begin play on full ice with all hockey rules in place, including off-side and icing.  Penalties will be enforced, score kept and teams will change on the fly.  The EDGE has a policy of being fair to all players, sharing  opportunities and responsibilities of being a member of a team with all players. .  Although competition is important, development of players skills and team values ismore important to us.

10U Major – 2014  We will  have several openings for players looking to join the team.  2015 players with exceptional skills or experience may also  be considered, This is a Tier II level team.

10U Minor – 2015  Our “cross-ice” mites practiced hard all last year and are all are eager to get on the ice for real games.  We have several openings to fill  with enthusiastic, dedicated players. Developing 2014 players who may not have had travel experience will find this a good place to continue to improve skills.

10U (Squirt)

2014-13 birth years

12U (Peewee)

2012-13 birth years

12U Major – 2012 – We are looking for players to fill our Tier II team.  We have multiple openings for players and will also be looking for an experienced goalie. Players must demonstrate that they are ready to put in the time and effort to help the team continue to succeed. Players will begin to learn that they must “earn” their ice time.   For more info  about the 2012 team contact Bob Bedford  at rfbedford@gmail.co

12U Minor – 2013– We have a core of returning players, but  spots will be made available for qualified players.   Players who perform best at tryouts will be rewarded with placement on the team.
