The point is the DVHL shouldn't be able to force you to sign the agreement at the first registration. The bylaws conflict AAHA and USAH open tryout rules.
What bylaws? Must be new. Fought that fight about 10 years ago.
AAHA: "That's a contract issue. We don't get involved in that."
USAH: "AAHA is in charge of hockey in the area. They have final say."
With all the talk about retaining players, fair play, ethics etc. it shocked me that nobody cared about organization business practices. I can get not wanting to dictate team by team. But this is a league rule. A league that controls hockey in a major market.
One thing that harms players in this area is how little oversight there is. In other areas there it goes league>affiliate>district<>USAH
Here it's pretty much all the same people top to bottom.
