POLICY: NWHL Priority Placement 

 Northwest Hockey League (NWHL) policy states that priority placement of players on Fall rosters will be given to players based on their date of registration. So, in situations when NWHL rosters are full, as determined by the Cyclones Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA), the determining factor as to whether or not a player is placed on a NWHL roster or is cut, will be the date of registration. 

 Additionally, CAHA policy is that in instances where a returning Cyclones or Hurricanes player (which is defined as a player who was registered and played the previous Fall hockey season with the Cyclones or Fox Valley Hurricanes Amateur Hockey Association (FVHAHA), and who is registered for the upcoming Fall season as a Travel (NIHL, Central States) player and who is cut after Travel tryouts will be granted priority placement on NWHL teams over a "new" Cyclones NWHL player (defined as a player who was not registered and did not play the previous Fall season with the Cyclones) and who is registered for the upcoming, regardless of when each player registered. 

 In situations where there is a returning Cyclones or Hurricanes player who is registered for the upcoming Fall season as a Travel player and who is cut after Travel tryouts and a returning Cyclones player who is registered for the upcoming Fall season as a NWHL player, priority placement on NWHL teams will be given to players based on their registration date.

 In situations where there is a "new" Cyclones player who has registered for the upcoming Fall season as a Travel player and gets cut from Travel tryouts and a "new" Cyclones player who has registered for the upcoming Fall season as a NWHL player, priority placement on NWHL teams will be given to players based on their registration date. 

 In situations where there is a "new" Cyclones player who has registered for the upcoming Fall season as a Travel player and gets cut after Travel tryouts and a returning Cyclones player who has registered for the upcoming Fall season as a NWHL player, priority placement on NWHL teams will be given to the returning Cyclones player
