nosoup;"Recent discussion has been because SHA in their wisdom has threatened to ban any kid that participates in a tryout prior to march 31 from hockey for a year."

I guess this can be a "glass is half full, half empty" thing depending on what frame of mind you are in when you read it. To quote the memo sent out;

"This conduct is called "Tampering", which the SHA will investigate and if individuals have broken the regulation, then a possible consequence is suspension up to a year for coaches and to be determined time for players"

Surely nobody truly believes that the SHA will suspend a kid from hockey for any amount of time. Coaches and managers of Spring/Summer hockey may want to sit back for a minute and think really hard about this though. It may be just as easy as having a well written letter stating their intentions with detailed skating dates signed by the coaches and GM's of the childs winter hockey team that may or may not be affected. In sending out the Memo, SHA has definitely cut out the "easier to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission" way of life that so many of us live by (mostly with the wives though). The SHA rule has always been there, they just haven't really enforced it that much, or that well.
