2024-2025 Valley Youth Hockey Travel Tryout


Roanoke Jr Dawgs Travel Team Tryouts

Valley Youth Hockey Association is pleased to announce tryout information for the 2024 Spring Travel season and the 2024-2025 Roanoke Jr. Dawgs Regular season.


VYHA  is a Tier II Hockey Club that fields competitive teams focused on player development while providing a safe and fun environment to build a lifelong love of the game. Roanoke Jr. Dawgs travel teams will participate in the Carolinas Hockey League (CHL) in all divisions where team levels match, as well as the Eastern Junior Elite Prospect League (EJEPL) or equivalent.


The organization's goal is to field co-ed teams at 10U, 12U, 14U, and 16U.  Where the number of participants can support, we will field multiple teams at some levels.  The number of teams and level of play is ultimately subject to the number and quality of the selected players.  


2024 Spring Travel and 2024-2025 Roanoke Jr Dawgs Travel tryouts will be conducted across multiple days beginning April 13 at the Lancerlot Sports Complex, unless otherwise noted. Each player will be assessed a $35 tryout fee per team being evaluated. The tryout schedule is as follows:
