Apparel

All players announced to rosters are to report to apparel try-ons as per the above schedule. 
 
As we near tryouts, please watch for our live ‘Apparel’ page for updated team and association apparel requirements and costs. 
 
NOTE that the apparel order deadline for ALL teams will be Sun/June 16 6:00pm, so please plan for time in your schedule to ensure your player's completed order meets that deadline.

Player Offers & Commitments

No final team roster will be posted in hardcopy at the rink following any session.  All team rosters shall be posted ONLINE on the Houston Junior Aeros website within approximately sixty (60) minutes of completion of tryouts for each team.
 
Players whose names appear on the posted team roster after each age division’s final tryout session are thereby offered a roster spot on the specified Houston Junior Aeros team.  
 
To secure your player’s spot on a Houston Junior Aeros team roster, you shall be required to electronically (online) submit a $550 commitment fee and complete/execute all applicable/required documentation (eg: Player Agreement, Codes of Conduct, payment plan, etc.) as set forth below.
 
As in prior years, the Commitment/Signing Room will have laptops and/or required forms for parents’ use in completing the commitment process. Parents of the following players should proceed to the commitment room immediately upon the final team roster being posted:
  • ALL new-to-the-association players
  • ALL foreign players (regardless of returning or new)
 
All other players are permitted to complete the online commitment process offsite on their own personal devices by 6:00pm Sun/June 9 or Sun/June 16, as the case may be. 
 
Out of respect for all competing players and Houston Junior Aeros coaches and volunteers, all players (and parents) participating in the Houston Junior Aeros tryouts should be prepared to commit and sign contracts within the above timeframe if so offered. Failure to commit as such will be considered a forfeiture of that roster spot which will be offered to another player.
 
Houston Junior Aeros personnel will be on site to make arrangements for any hard copy signatures and manual payment arrangements (cash, check, or credit card) that may be necessary.


Commitment Fees, Player Registration Fees, & Payment Plans

Please see below for 2024-25 Commitment Fees and Player Registration Fees.  
 
All players wishing to accept an offered roster position with the Houston Junior Aeros must pay a Commitment Fee of $550.  Refer to Player Offers & Commitments above.
 
The Houston Junior Aeros offers two (2) online payment options for Player Registration Fees (i.e. total season fees less Commitment Fee):
 
  • Option 1: Pay your Player Registration Fee in full at the same time as payment of Commitment Fee (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or checking account accepted).
  • Option 2: Divide your Player’s Registration Fee (total player fees less Commitment Fee) into six (6) equal payments (as outlined in table below) to be automatically charged (using the same payment method as used for the Commitment Fee) on August 1, September 1, October 1, November 1, December 1, and January 1.
If you are unable to complete online payment of your player’s Commitment Fee and/or Player Registration Fee, you are responsible, within the designated commitment timeline, to contact Houston Junior Aeros Treasurer, Rob Borne, or Houston Junior Aeros President, Laura Dumas, to make arrangements for offline payment.

TAHA Community-Based Rule

As a TAHA member association, the Houston Junior Aeros is bound by TAHA's 'community-based' policy for all our teams.  
 
If Houston is not the closest travel hockey community to the primary residence of a player's immediate family, the onus is on the player's family to seek permission from the TAHA Travel Section President to attend the Houston Junior Aeros tryouts.  We strongly suggest that you initiate such requests at least two (2) weeks prior to the date of the Houston Junior Aeros tryout that your player wishes to attend.
 
Any players residing within TAHA's jurisdiction but outside Houston boundaries must present evidence of such permission prior to attending Houston Junior Aeros tryouts.
 
For more information on TAHA's 'community-based' policy, please see the TAHA Guidebook/Rulebook, particularly Page 19.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Financial Assistance is available for those in need: however, per DSTHL rules, the Board is not permitted to consider requests for financial assistance until after the player requesting assistance has committed to a Houston Junior Aeros team.  
 
For more information, please see the Financial Assistance Application Form on our ‘About Us page and/or contact Houston Junior Aeros President, Mike Zeibaq.

MITES - 2016 Birth Year Players

8U 2016 birth year (Mite Major) players trying out for the Houston Junior Aeros are encouraged to be familiar with the TAHA Mite ADM Policy, located on Page 30 of the TAHA Guidebook/Rulebook.
