Registration and Return to Play

A message from your BHI Executive and Staff regarding Return to Play and Registration

When Can We Get Back on the Ice and What Will the Season Look Like?

This is by far the most asked question and probably the most difficult to answer!

We have been informed that Hockey Canada has various seasonal models with different start times (September, October etc.).  Specific details of these models have not been disclosed but it is anticipated that topics such as tryouts, season length and championships will be incorporated and adjusted in accordance to the start time.

BHI is committed to ensuring their membership will be as informed through these unprecedented times. We have had representation on every call or meeting hosted by the OMHA, OHF and Hockey Canada pertaining to return to play in Ontario. We will continue to keep you updated as things progress!

The staff are anticipating and will be prepared for a quick turnaround once the green light is given to resume hockey activities.


At this time, we are looking to gauge the interest of our players for the upcoming season, and have opened registration with a deferred payment plan set for September. This will allow for us to build out different modelling option for programming. 

Last season’s pricing model will carry forward for 2020/21 (FEES can be found HERE), with the goal of continuing to offer quality programming for all levels within the organization.

Ontario Hockey Federation Return to Play Plan

On June 10, 2020 the OHF released their return to play plans for hockey in Ontario (you can view the whole document on our website). We are currently entering Phase 2, Stage 2 of the OHF Return to Play process.

Stage 2 of Phase 2 of the OHF plan allows for individual in-person on-ice training, virtual group training and in-person on-ice group development programming (with no more than 10 people).  In accordance with the Ontario Government’s Emergency order, the opening and controlled use of sports facilities is permitted for use by sports organizations and now (recently changed) private businesses.

While the OHF return to play plan allows for on-ice programming in this stage, the OMHA (who is our governing body) is not currently approving on-ice programming for its Associations. As such, the BHI is not currently permitted to run any on-ice programming:

●      Bulletin: Return to Play – Association Programming

For more information, please see the following links:

●      OHF Return to Hockey Framework - Updated

●      OHF Return to Hockey FAQs

●      Session Participation and Health Screening Tracking

●      Health Screening Questionnaire


There is no specific timeline on when we will be able to proceed to later stages within Phase 2, this is dependent on the Provincial Government mandates, public health stipulations and further direction from Hockey Canada.

Tryouts and Rep Team Formation for the 2020-21 Season

The rumour mill in hockey is rampant at the best of times but has been brought to new levels during these unprecedented times. The topic of tryouts and team formation seems to be particularly popular which is why we have chosen to address it in the hopes of dispelling some of the rumours and misinformation surrounding it.

Out of Town Players

With BHI being a AAA Centre, it is fairly common for non-Brampton resident players to be on Brampton teams.

For more information on the process for out of town players, please click here and review the “Out-of-Town Players” section in the Registration > General Information tab:

Thank you to all of our members for your patience and understanding as we navigate through all of this. We are all hoping to get our players back on the ice for the 2020-21 season in the safest environment as possible.

Any questions regarding registration, tryouts, or any other hockey items please contact by email: [email protected] and your email will be forwarded to the appropriate person for response.
