As a follow up to Coach Madsen's email regarding the recent AAHA updates re offering player agreements, please read the below. AAHA's update can be found at this link https://www.atlantic-district.org/news_article/show/1103301
In order for us to be able to offer Player Agreements we need to understand who would like to play for NCHC this coming season. To that end we ask that you register your player ASAP using the 2020-2021 Evaluation Skate Registration link on our website (above). From the pool of returning and new NCHC players who have registered by May 26th we will determine the projected number of teams and be able to extend Player Agreements on June 22nd. This will allow us to begin initial planning for next season (ice time requirements, uniforms, etc). The Evaluation Registration fee will be credited toward your Season fees if you are selected for a team. If you have previously registered your player(s) for 2020 Tryouts we will convert that Tryout registration and fee to a Pre-Season Registration. You do not need to register again.
NCHC 2020-2021 Player Agreements will be based on appropriate age levels (e.g. 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, etc). If necessary, and when conditions allow, we will hold post-agreement evaluations to determine appropriate skill levels and team placements if we have more than one team at an age level. We will communicate further info on this process, if our registration numbers deem it necessary.
Please note that AAHA requires that Player Agreements issued prior to August 3rd, 2020 include a COVID-19 Financial Hardship Refund Policy, which may be exercised by the participant/family through July 31, 2020. A hardship under this policy must be related to the COVID-19 pandemic, where a family’s financial condition changed after signing a Player Agreement and on or prior to July 31, 2020. A participant/family exercising this option will not be permitted to roster with another team for the 2020-2021 season.
All of this info will inevitably raise additional questions and so we will continue to communicate as details develop. Be assured that whether you are a returning NCHC family or new to the Nutley-Clifton organization we are committed to your player’s success. In the meantime please direct any immediate questions to:
We anticipate lots of questions and we may not have answers for all of them yet, so please be patient, we will get back to you! Please feel free to forward this email onto any families you believe would be interested in playing for NCHC during the 2020-21 season.
What do I need to do now?
Please register ASAP. Thanks to all who have already registered! You must be registered by May 26th to be considered for a 2020 Player Agreement. This applies to ALL players – returning and new, skaters and goalies. If you previously registered for Tryouts we will convert your Tryout registration and fee to a Pre-Season Registration. You do not need to register again.
New to NCHC?
We remain interested in bringing on new players. If we have any questions about your player a member of our staff will reach out to you. Every effort will be made to provide a spot for your player at NCHC.
You must register by May 26th to be considered for 2020-2021 Player Agreements.
The Pre-Season Registration fee is $35. All registration/tryout fees will be credited towards your Season fees if you are offered a Player Agreement. Should you be offered a spot at NCHC and sign with another club, your registration fee is not refundable.
Player Agreements will be issued starting June 22nd. The Season deposit due upon committing to NCHC and signing a Player Agreement will be $500 and will be required 48 hours from the time the agreement is sent out. You must also be in good standing with the club from the previous season in order to register for the 2020-21 season.
