OMHA Changes to Regulations
Submitted By Deb Larsen on Tuesday, October 30, 2018
The OMHA Board passed the following changes to Regulations as they appear in the 2018-2019 OMHA Manual of Operations at its meetings October 20-21, 2018:  OMHA Manual of Operations. Regulation 7.3 a) – Affiliation – Restriction on Affiliation and Regulation 16.2 a) – Appeals – Decision.

Regulation 7.3 a) – Affiliation – Restriction on Affiliation

The Regulation will now read as follows:

Players registered on a team or affiliated to a team eligible for Hockey Canada National or Regional Championships, or OHF Championships (per OMHA Regulation 4.1e)) may participate as an affiliated player to a maximum of ten (10) games before becoming ineligible to affiliate. If a player plays an eleventh (11th) game as an affiliate while his registered team is still in regular season, OMHA Playdowns or League playoffs he is considered an ineligible player with his affiliate team and the sanctions, within OMHA Regulation 8.1i), for playing an ineligible player will apply. For goaltender participation see OMHA Regulation 7.2a).

Note: Tournament and exhibition games shall not count as part of the player’s ten (10) games.

This maintains consistency with OHF Regulation D-15 a):
For Junior Hockey and Regional and National Championship eligible Teams, a Player of a Team of a lower Division or Category may Affiliate to a Team or Teams of higher Divisions or Categories at any time, to a maximum of ten (10) games per Team.

The interpretation of this Regulation applies only to players affiliated to teams at the AAA Peewee, AAA Bantam and AAA Midget Divisions.

Regulation 16.2 a) – Appeals – Decision

The Regulation will now read as follows:

The hearer of the OMHA Appeal shall give its final decision in writing not more than fourteen (14) days after the hearing, fact finding and/or further investigation is completed and may:

  1. grant the appeal
  2. deny the appeal
  3. vary the decision appealed by:
    1. increasing or decreasing any suspension
    2. issuing an order prohibiting the continuation of any of the matters dealt with in the appeal
  4. grant a refund of up to fifty (50) percent of the appeal fee.

Due to the increasing complexity and volume of information being presented at Appeals, in some cases this necessitates involving expertise from outside the Appeal Committee hearing the Appeal, and as such may increase the time to arrive at and communicate a decision.
