As a result of many instances last season the Ontario Hockey Federation has a new policy aimed at helmets specifically but will also include mouthguards and neckguards for WMHA.

Please see below for additional important information.

HI All :

As a result of many instances last season the Ontario Hockey Federation has a new policy aimed at helmets specifically but will also include mouthguards and neckguards for WMHA. 

Unfortunately WMHA has experienced a surprising number of incidents over the last few seasons. Please remember this equipment is for the protection of the children on the ice. Even though it may not be "cool" it will save participants from potential catastrophic injuries.

All equipment needs to worn by players at all times when on the ice to provide maximum protection and lessen the risk of injuries. 

Should you have questions please feel free to ask, there will be no leniency on this policy, please expect suspensions as prescribed by the policy if you or your child is without proper equipment.
Yours in hockey,

Chris Young, President
