Waxers House League (Markham Waxers)

Summer is over and hockey season is just around the corner. Markham Waxers House League will begin on Saturday, September 14th.

Please read through this information carefully as there are requirements—for both new and returning players—that must be met before your young player can step on the ice this year.

 

Have you finalized registration?

Three additional tasks must be completed to finalize registration. Players cannot participate until these tasks are complete. 

1.  Provide proof of age
The Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) requires all participants to provide proof of age prior to season start. Please submit a copy of your child's birth certificate or passport (health cards are not acceptable). You may submit a copy online via our Proof of Age form, email a scanned copy, drop off a copy at the Waxers office, or drop by during office hours so we can do a visual verification. 

You need only provide proof of age once. The verification will be entered into their Hockey Canada Registry record.

2.  Complete the online course Parent Respect in Sport
At least one parent or guardian of each player (18 years of age or younger) registered in minor hockey in the OMHA must complete the online Respect in Sport Parent Program as a condition of participation.

You only need to take the program once—it does not expire. If you are registering a child for the first time but have taken the program for another child or for another sport, remember to add the child to your Respect in Sport account by way of their Child Management tab after you register them for the first time.

Get started with Parent Respect in Sport. Please note: We do not use a pre-registration code for Parent Respect in Sport.

3.  NEW Requirement: Rowan’s Law Compliance
Starting this season,
all participants—new and returning—are required to review the issued Concussion Awareness Resources and sign the acknowledgement form in order to step on the ice in the 2019-2020 hockey season. This includes all players, rostered team officials, and on-ice volunteers. To comply, you must:

1.    review the Ontario Government's age-appropriate concussion awareness resources.

o   10 and Under Concussion Awareness Resource

o   11-14 Concussion Awareness Resource

o   15 and Over Concussion Awareness Resource

2.    review the OHF Concussion Code of Conduct

3.    commit to operate within the parameters of the OHF concussion code of conduct, and

4.    acknowledge review of the above resources and your commitment by completing the Rowan's Law Acknowledgement Form.

 

Season Start

The 2019-2020 season will begin September 14th with evaluation games. 

Players will be assigned to an evaluation team and team assignment emails will be sent to you by your player’s coach the week of September 9th. 

Please complete a Medical Info Sheet and give it to your team trainer at the first evaluation game.

During the first four weeks of the season, players will play evaluation games on both practice and game ice. After the evaluation games, the teams will be balanced by the head coaches in each division. Players will be moved during balancing, so don't get too comfortable on your evaluation team as that may not be your team for the season. 

Following balancing, we will begin practices on October 19th and play three weeks of exhibition games to ensure the divisions are as balanced as possible. Regular season play will begin on the weekend of November 8th. 

Schedules are subject to change. Any changes or updates to this schedule will be posted on our website.

NEW REQUIREMENTS TO PLAY

Rowan’s Law (Concussion Safety), makes Ontario a national leader in concussion management and prevention by establishing mandatory requirements that call for:

  • Annual review of concussion awareness resources that help prevent, identify, and manage concussions, which athletes, coaches, educators and parents are required to review before registering in a sport.
  • Removal-from-sport and return-to-sport protocols, to ensure that an athlete is immediately removed from sport if they are suspected of having sustained a concussion and giving them the time required to heal properly.
  • A concussion code of conduct that sets out rules of behaviour to minimize concussions while playing sport
