Girls Hockey Tryout - Policy Update
Submitted By WMHA on Monday, April 22, 2019
Our association is unique in that we have teams under both Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) and Ontario Women's Hockey Association (OWHA).  

Out of respect for teams & coaches within our organization we have updated our procedures to ensure we are able to appropriately plan our teams and schedules.




WMHA Procedures – Section 2.4 in part reads as follows If a player is offered a spot on an OWHA team they have tried out for and refuses, that player is not eligible to play for an OMHA team. If a player who is registered with WMHA chooses to step on the ice for a 2nd girls rep tryout, that player has exercised the decision to opt for a WMHA OWHA team and thereby forfeits a tryout with a WMHA OMHA team unless that player is cut or released from tryouts with the OWHA team.  

Having this procedure in place will call on girls to choose to play with an OWHA team in the spring of each year so we aren’t in a position of potentially folding girl’s teams in the fall if players decide to move to an OMHA team after season planning has already taken place.  

Please make a careful decision on your affiliation and if you have any concerns please contact OWHA or WMHA registrars Carrie Vancoillie or Mike Moniz
