Important Notice of Changes to OMHA Tryout Policies
Submitted By Nicole Schoonderbeek on Saturday, March 03, 2018
The tryout schedule for the 2018/19 season will be posted soon in the 'Tryouts' tab of the CZHA website; however, players and families should note that there have been significant changes to the OMHA tryout policies, specifically in relation to the timing of commitments and subsequent waivers.

Please click the Read More link below for details about these important changes to the tryout process.

As announced on February 6, 2018, the following motion was passed by the OMHA board:

"To approve a 2-year pilot project commencing 2018-19 to have AAA tryouts except for Major Midget completed within 7 days of commencement of tryouts. A player must be offered a player registration by the end of the fourth day. AAA tryouts shall commence from the first Monday following OHF Championships. AA and below tryouts would not commence until completion of AAA tryouts."

Accordingly, the following guidelines should be noted:
  1. AAA tryouts for all age groups will begin on Monday, April 16, 2018.
  2. All teams must officially offer to commit to those players they wish to keep by the 4th day (Thursday, April 19, 2018), else the player may request a waiver.
  3. The official tryout period is for seven days from Monday, April 16, 2018 to Sunday, April 22, 2018.
  4. Teams may run their tryouts longer; however, any player not committed to by the fourth day (Thursday, April 19, 2018) may request a waiver.
For more information about the new tryout policies, refer to the OMHA Tryouts FAQs

The tryout schedule for the 2018/19 season will be posted soon in the 'Tryouts' tab of the CZHA website.
