SportsEngine Registration: New Jersey Devils Youth Hockey Club

2018 Tuneup Clinics


New USA Hockey Rule in Effect

According to the USA Hockey Annual Guide:

Tryouts for Tier I teams must be published and advertised. No youth Tier I or II team may recruit or solicit players or offer hockey contracts to players for the following season, or hold development camps, tryouts, player selections or any activity that could be construed as a tryout/solicitation or recruitment for the following season, until 48 hours after the last game of Youth National Championships (both Tier I and Tier II Nationals must be completed). For example, if the National Tournament ends at 4 pm on Monday, tryouts can begin after 4 pm on Wednesday. Any violation of this prohibition may subject the coach, team, program and/or responsible administrators to appropriate discipline, or ineligibility of the team or coach, as determined by the Affiliate.

Pre-tryout clinics are viewed by USA Hockey as an activity that could be construed as recruitment; therefore, we are not permitted to have players from other organizations participate in our tuneup clinics. 

While our organization does not agree with this rule from both an ethical and a business perspective, we cannot risk punishment for our players, coaches, or the organization as a whole.  We find it terribly unfortunate that the unscrupulous behavior of some members of the youth hockey community has forced USAH to take this action, and we regret that the only way to combat this type of behavior is to limit families' freedom.

A Tradition of Excellence

The Devils Youth Hockey Club has a long-standing tradition of offering outstanding hockey instruction without sacrificing the long-term development and enjoyment of each player.  Over the past three decades, our players have gone on to have success both on and off the ice at prep schools, colleges, junior leagues, the NHL, and on the international stage up to and including the Olympics.  We take pride in developing self-confident, team-oriented individuals who reach their highest potential as people and as hockey players.

NEW for 2018-2019: GIRLS HOCKEY

We are excited to announce that Devils Youth will be launching our girls' travel hockey program for the 2018 - 2019 season!

Our organization has been granted Tier 2 status by the AAHA and we are in the process of applying for MAWHA membership.  We are looking forward to building a competitive program from the ground up.

Our original intention was to field an all-girls 8U team, a 14U team, and a short-season 19U team for the coming season.  In addition, we have heard from a number of families whose 10U and 12U daughters are interested in our organization.  In response to this overwhelming interest, we have adjusted our tuneup and tryout schedules and added sessions for these age groups, and we plan to skate our 10U and 12U teams in the NJYHL.

We look forward to a fantastic inaugural season!
