Try Outs
Submitted By Sondra Scott on Thursday, September 15, 2016
It has come to the attention of the Minto Minor Hockey executive that some parents have questions about players trying out for the Rep team at the higher age group.An example of this would be an Atom aged player trying out for the Pee Wee Rep team. As in the past, any player may try out for a Rep team at a higher level than their own age group.

This is set out in the Minto Minor Hockey Association Operating Procedures 9(e), as well as the OMHA Manual of Operations.Please see the excerpts below… 

From the Minto Minor Hockey Operating Procedures:9. e) As per OMHA regulations, any player may try out for a Rep team at a level higher than their age group. If they make the team, they are responsible to pay the difference in the registration fee between their designated level and the fee that applies to the level above. If they do not make the Rep team, they must return to their own age group level.  

From the 2016-2017 OMHA Manual of Operations:3.6 Eligibility to Play in a Higher Divisiona) Centres must establish criteria that players would be required to meet in order to play on a higher division team.b) A player shall be eligible to try-out for and, if qualified by ability, may register and play for a Representative team in the next higher division of his Home Centre or Home Centre Zone.OMHA Centres and Zones cannot prevent underage players from attending tryouts in the higher division.Example: A Minor-age Peewee player would be eligible to try-out and sign with either the Peewee team, the Minor Bantam team or the Bantam team.c) For Additional Entry teams the Centre may restrict players from playing in a higher division. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact myself or any MMH executive member.
