BRAMPTON 45'S REPRESENTATIVE TEAMS
Brampton Hockey has teams at the AA & A Levels.
Brampton Hockey has “AA” and “A” teams from the U10 age division to the U18 age division. At the “MD” level Brampton Hockey traditionally fields teams where numbers warrant. Teams from U14 to U18 play in leagues where body checking is permitted.
It should be understood that these teams are not just representatives of Brampton Hockey but also serve as ambassadors for the City of Brampton.
The “AA” & “A” teams play in the Tri-County League which includes teams from Orangeville, Caledon, Georgetown, Oakville, Burlington, Dundas, Flamborough, Guelph, Woolwich, Stoney Creek, and other centres in the OMHA’s Central District. The “AA” teams play in the Bowen Division, the “A” teams play in the Smith Division. All teams in these groups play 28 regular season games before moving onto the OMHA play downs which start in mid-January. Teams that do not advance past the OMHA Quarter Finals are eligible to play in the Tri-County Playoffs.
Tryouts for Brampton Hockey’s Representative Teams begin in late April. The tryouts are posted on the Brampton Hockey website about a month prior to the first tryout. The progression of tryouts is “AA” then “A” and concludes with the "MD” (if warranted). There is a nominal fee for each tryout session.
Parents should be aware that Brampton Hockey does assess each Rep team a surcharge to cover the additional cost of playing at this level. The surcharge is a team cost to which all players are required to contribute their appropriate share. In addition to the surcharge, teams will do fund-raising to cover other costs related to the operation of the team such as tournament fees, extra practice ice, sweaters, and team apparel. Brampton Hockey does have within its Resolutions a maximum dollar amount that teams are permitted to charge each player to cover these additional costs. This information is provided to all parents at tryouts.
