OMHA Programming Update
Submitted By Deb Larsen on Friday, June 18, 2021

The OMHA issued the following programming updates:

  • Seasonal Start Date
  • Categorization - Representative Programming: U9
  • Categorization - Representative Programming: AE



Resumption of sanctioned programming will begin the Tuesday following Labour Day - September 7, 2021. This applies to all programming, both on-ice and off-ice.


Amendments to OHF Playing Regulations resulted in the elimination of all competitive (Representative) categories at U9. The implementation of this decision has been deferred for one season.

This programming will remain available for the 2021-2022 season only.

Should an Association choose to provide Representative U9 programming in 2021-2022, tryout timelines by category as indicated for U11 will apply.

AAA tryouts begin   September 13, 2021 (7 days)
AAA development phase begins   September 20 (minimum 7 days)
AA tryouts begins   September 20, 2021 (7 days)
AA development phase begins   September 27 (minimum 7 days)
A & below tryouts begin   September 27, 2021 (7 days)
A & below development phase begins   October 4 (minimum 7 days)

Moving forward, implementation of the OHF decision in the OMHA will take effect beginning with the 2022- 2023 season and the only categories permitted at U9 will be House League (HL), Local League (LL) and Minor Development (MD).


Amendments to OHF Playing Regulations defining Categories has also resulted in AE no longer being identified as a stand-alone category. As with U9 Representative programming, implementation has been deferred for one year to allow sufficient time to modify and transition existing programming as originally indicated.
