Residents living within the restricted boundaries of any centre will not qualify for a release to play representative (or select) hockey in another centre as per OMHA rules and regulations.
Those players in a designated shared
area may make a Right_of_Choice
if not previously rostered to a representative team or a select team as a rostered player or an affiliated player.
Please note: Once a Right of Choice Declaration has been made or a player is rostered to a Travel Team with St. Thomas Minor Hockey, that player will become part of the restricted area of St. Thomas Minor Hockey and will not be granted a release.
House league (local league) players can play in any centre regardless of residency.
If there is any question whether an address is within restricted boundaries, you must clarify with the centre prior to registration.
Those residences which fall outside any restricted or designated shared boundaries can utilize the Right of Choice
regulation (3.4) as outlined in the OMHA handbook. Please refer to omha.net
for further clarification of this regulation.
If you have recently moved into any of the boundaries you may be required to complete a 'Player Transfer Form'
Please submit this transfer form with all supporting documents at the time of registration. You may contact us at [email protected]
for further clarification.
