Tryout Cost Details

  • Location: Roy McKnight Hockey Center (423 Fox Chapel Rd, Pittsburgh 15238)

  • A $175 tryout fee is charged to complete your registration. The tryout fee is non-refundable even if you do not show to tryouts, or do not complete tryouts. If your player accepts a roster position on a 2024-25 Pittsburgh Aviators team the tryout fee will be credited toward their season tuition.

  • A $500 commitment fee will be required to commit your player to a roster position on a 2024-25 Pittsburgh Aviators team. All financial transactions will be done electronically through Crossbar. By completing this registration you agree to allow the Pittsburgh Aviators to charge your payment method on file for the commitment fee. If a roster position is offered you will have 24 hours to decline the position. After 24 hours your player will be considered to have accepted the roster position and your account will be charged for the commitment fee. Once charged, commitment fees are non-refundable if your player later declines a roster position. More information on accepting or declining roster positions will be included with any offer of a roster position.

  • Crossbar charges a 2% transaction fee on all Debit/Credit Card transactions. If you establish payment using a bank account there are no transaction fees and you can save money on your tryout and commitment fees. You must set up a payment method and keep it current for the duration of tryouts. If you do not have an active payment method on file your player will not be offered a roster position.
