The MO Hockey policy allows players to "pool" to another association by trying out for a AA team outside of their home district club because their districted club is not fielding a AA team or the player did not make their districted club's AA team. If the players makes a AA team of an out of district team, they will be noted as a Pool Player on the team's roster.
Should a Pool Player's districted club field a AA team the following year, the player must return to their districted club and register one week prior to the end of the registration period as outlined by MO Hockey.
Those wishing to utilize this option must complete the appropriate documentation and submit it for review to the MO Hockey Youth Division by the deadline indicated on their website.
The MO Hockey policy allows players from PW, BA, and MD age divisions to transfer, one time, to a club outside of their district. A Reverse Transfer allows a player to return to their districted club that they previously had transferred from using the OTT policy. A player can only exercise the Reverse Transfer one time.
Those wishing to utilize this option must complete the appropriate documentation and submit it for review to MO Hockey by 5p on June 7th of the year that the player wishes to transfer. The Youth Division Board will review the transfer request and notify the player of their approval within 30 days of the One Choice period of the receiving club.
The MO Hockey policy allows clubs to report players that have an outstanding balance from spring, summer, fall, or winter hockey activities. Players may not be allowed to participate with their club until the account is paid in full and MO Hockey will not submit their USAH registration for the season starting September 1st. Clubs must report players by June 15th and MO Hockey will send out a notice by July 1st that players must be in good financial standing by August 30th. Once the account is paid in full, the club must contact MO Hockey by August 30th to be registered for the season starting September 1st.
Further details regarding these policies can be found on the MO Hockey and MO Hockey Youth Division Rules pages.
