making a number of changes in order to remain compliant with the Hockey
Canada/OMHA mandate in regards to Initiation players playing half ice. As a
result of this mandate, H.M.H.A. has purchased dividers to split the ice into
two playing surfaces and the smaller nets required to support half ice play.
There has been a lot of work happening with other centres in an effort to more closely align our Tyke programs to ensure a level playing field when playing against other teams. These changes will affect IP, Tyke & Novice.
The OMHA Age Reference Chart is as follows and we will be following these age ranges. 7 year olds registered for Novice must be trying out for Novice Rep, otherwise they will automatically be moved down to Tyke. 7 year olds who try out for and are cut from Novice Rep will be moved back to Tyke but may be moved to Novice LL depending on numbers and skill.
