More information on AAA tryouts can be obtained from the Ottawa Myers Automotive AAA website (

U18 (Midget) AAA hockey
U18 AAA hockey is offered by the HEO Midget AAA League and information on its tryouts can be found at

Tryout Registration: Players can register for tryouts while registering for hockey online. 

Players trying out for Junior or AAA
Myers Automotive AAA or U18 AAA hockey hopefuls must register with the NMHA to be eligible for AAA tryouts. 

Junior hockey hopefuls may register with the NMHA to ensure that they reserve registration in the NMHA, should they be released by a Junior team.

To guarantee registration, Junior or AAA hopefuls may register by paying a $25 non-refundable deposit, rather than the full amount. Players released back to Nepean from Junior, or AAA must pay the remainder of their fees before attending any NMHA on-ice activities.

You must complete the online registration below and pay the $25 fee prior to tryouts.

NMHA Tryout Refunds
Players can withdraw from tryouts with a partial refund up to the day before tryouts begin. Tryouts require a commitment of time and ice resources on the part of the NMHA, so withdrawals, after tryouts begin, are not eligible for a refund. The refund will be subject to an administration fee of 10%.

Tryout Schedules
Tryout ice and schedules will be communicated to participants in August of each season. Tryouts are expected to begin the weekend of August 28.

Volunteers Required

As the association is completely driven by volunteers, and the association continues to grow at a rapid pace; the need for volunteers continues to grow as well. The board needs your help, so please volunteer to help move this association forward for the kids. We all want the kids to play hockey and that can only occur if we all help to make it happen. During the registration process, you will be able to volunteer to help.

Unlike many organizations, we do not insist on a payment in lieu of volunteering, but as we grow, the demand for volunteers keeps increasing.

The NMHA wants to ensure people understand what they are volunteering for when they sign up, and we are providing the following guidelines for the different positions available.

See a complete list of the types of volunteers that the NMHA requires.
