As we together work our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, USA Hockey will continue to provide updates to their Affiliates. The CBHL is working closely with the PVAHA on status updates.
May 14, 2020. The following excerpt is taken from the PVAHA update regarding PVAHA Approved Player Agreements for the USA Hockey 2020–2021 Season: <Note: CBHL Teams are Tier II>
<On> Tuesday, May 26, 2020, Tier I Youth (Team Maryland and Washington Little Capitals) and Tier I Girls (Washington Pride) are allowed to offer player agreements for the upcoming 2020–21 season, without on-ice tryouts, to only those players who were rostered on their respective teams in 2019–20. All players must be registered with USA Hockey for the 2020–21 season and must be registered for tryouts with the club offering the player agreement.
<On> Monday, June 1, 2020, Tier I Youth and Tier I Girls may begin offering player agreements to all other players. All players must be registered with USA Hockey for the 2020–21 season and must be registered for tryouts with the club offering the player agreement.
The Affiliate will continue to monitor the situation regarding rink openings and based on that, will determine the date that clubs may begin the tryout process. Tier I clubs may begin on that date and all Tier II and Travel clubs shall begin 14 days from that date. Also, Tier II and Travel clubs may not offer player agreements until on-ice tryouts commence.
