Permission to Skate and F1 Waiver Requests
Submitted By Andrea Thomson on Tuesday, September 7, 2021
Please see the following information on Permission to Skate and F1 Waiver Requests

The Lake Ontario Region (LOR) is a Geographic Subdivision, for A and AA hockey from U10 to U18 and for AAA hockey from U10 to U16, that is made up of the following: (a) GTHL (Toronto, Mississauga and Vaughan); and (b) the surrounding OMHA Centres including Oakville, Brampton, Richmond Hill, Pickering, and Ajax (each hereinafter referred to as an “OMHA LOR Centre” and these Centres’ AAA Zones); and (c) Markham (see Markham Programs Regulation H20).

A Player who resides in an OMHA LOR Centre from U10 to U13 must Tryout in their Centre/AAA Zone of residence.

-          No player releases will be issued prior to tryouts for U10 – U13

-          Player releases for U10 – U13 are at the discretion of the Association

-          In order to retain a player the team must offer a player registration by the end of the fourth day.

At the conclusion of each season, an OMHA LOR Centre/AAA Zone resident Player from U10 to U13 who has received a Release and has participated with a Team in the LOR outside of their LOR Centre/AAA Zone must return to their LOR Centre/AAA Zone to Tryout.

An OMHA LOR Player from U14 to U18 (except U18 AAA) will require a Permission to Skate if changing Members.

Following the motion that was passed at the 2021 OMHA Annual General Meeting by the voting membership, more freedom of player movement will be allowed this season at the AAA level.

There are different applications of the ruling that apply to the U10-U13 AAA age group and the U14-U16 AAA age group. This motion is not applicable to U18 AAA.

The motion applies only to OMHA Associations and players trying out at the AAA category in their own age division. It does not apply to players trying out at older age divisions.

As a result of the motion, previous Permission to Skate (PTS) forms can no longer be used at the U14-U16 AAA age group. AAA Centres will now also be required to complete a PTS for their players if the player is intending to exercise their option to try out outside of their home AAA Centre.

If you are interested to see how this change may affect your player, we ask that you please reach out to your home centre, as they will help guide you through the correct process.
