2020 - 2021 Tryout Information


Dear Bear Families,

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy through these difficult times.  While things are still unfolding with regards to the 2020 – 2021 season we wanted to share the latest information that we received after the NYSAHA meeting which was conducted recently with Tier I, II, and III organizations on how tryouts and signing of players will be handled for 2020-2021 season.  

At this time per NYSAHA and until further notice no organization can have any on and/or off ice tryouts, clinics, or any other type of events.

What does this all mean:

If you have interest in playing next season with the Bedford Bears program you will need to log into our website at and register your player by 5:00 PM, Friday, May 29th to express your interest in being considered for a BKHA roster spot.  There will be the appropriate registration link to register your player. Note the tryout fee will be placed towards the season tuition.  Tuition for next season will be determined after we receive further information from NYSAHA and after we understand what hockey will look like for 2020 – 2021 season.

You will have to register to be eligible to play with the Bedford Bears for the 2020 - 2021 season.  If you previously registered for tryouts prior to everything being shut down, you DO NOT need to do anything unless you decide you DO NOT want to play next season or are going to play elsewhere.  If that is the case, please notify us as soon as possible and we can remove you from the registration and refund your registration fee paid to date.

Here are the dates we were provided by NYSAHA to sign players:

June 1st - 10th State Tournament Bound Teams only

       14U TB, 16U TB & 18U TB State Tournament Bound Teams only (at this time Bedford will field an 18U TB team.  We will look to see if we  the              players to compete at the 14U & 16U levels.  If we do not, then we will field teams at the 14U & 16U Non-TB level, and these teams will be                    selected during the June 11th – 30th timeframe).

June 11th – 30th all other teams including 12U TB

       8U, 10U, 12U (All team levels)

July 1st all Rosters will be frozen, and a list will be given to NYSAHA 

With things still in flux NYSAHA has put in a refund policy due to the COVID-19 crisis for the 2020 – 2021 season.

Refund Policy set by NYSAHA: - Any family that has signed a contract to participate in the 2020 - 2021 season and needs to withdraw due to financial hardship or COVID-19 concerns, will be permitted to do so by August 15, 2020.  They will receive a full refund of any monies paid to date for tuition and/or tryout fees. The only exception to this would be any money for jerseys, equipment or team apparel that may have been purchased.  NYSAHA will be given a list of any player receiving a Refund and that player WILL NOT BE PERMITTED to play for any other travel team organization for the 2020 – 2021 season and will only be allowed to play in a house league setting.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Steve Tuite, President Bedford Katonah Hockey Association at 914-589-0242 or at  There will be additional information to follow as we are updated by NYSAHA.  

All the best and stay safe and well!
