2024-25 Girls Tryouts


Recommended Posts

We still do not have a firm answer on the pending PAHL rules on girls playing Pens Elite / PAHL co-ed and/or doubling on two separate aged all girls rosters, but some organizations are posting tryout days and times for the 2024-25 season so I figured we can start a thread of potential all girls teams looking for players. So far I have seen information out there for Steel City Selects, Arctic Foxes, Armstrong Arrows, and South Pittsburgh Rebellion, but please feel free to add more to this thread-

A few updates-

Two other things I have heard around the rinks, but no confirmation of the current situation-

Erie Otters girls, who have played in the 12U and 14U PAHL divisions were considering moving to independent status or joining a New York State based league depending on how the PAHL ruling on double rostering girls across age groups goes. 

Pittsburgh Vengeance are merging with the Steel City Ice Renegades and looking to form all some girls teams, no further details on tryouts that I can find on the Vengeance website.

Out of curiosity and for comparison, I looked at how the Atlantic District handles the dual-rostering:


"(3) Dual Rostering. Players may only appear on a USA Hockey roster with
one Association during the season (August 1 – end of USA Hockey
National Tournament) with the following exceptions:
(a) Junior team as allowed by USA Hockey Affiliated player rule
(b) AAHA recognized scholastic team
(c) AAHA recognized house league
(d) AAHA Affiliate sponsored teams
(e) Female players may appear on a youth and girls roster with the
same or different Associations.

(5) Girls Tier I Rostering.
(a) AAHA Tier I and Tier II 14U teams – No underaged players
permitted to play up to 14U.
(b) AAHA Tier I 16U teams – Maximum of two (2) second year 14U
players may play up at 16U. First year players are not permitted to
play up.
(c) AAHA Tier I 19U teams – Unlimited second year 16U players may
play up to 19U. First year players are not permitted to play up.
(d) Tier II USAH girls registered teams at 16U and 19U will not be
subject to restrictions on the number of players playing up in age
classification, however, it is recommended that they play within their
age group. Affiliate ADM policies, rules and regulations supersedes
this rule.
